BRAD KESELOWSKI WINS NASCAR SPRINT CUP SERIES RACE IN DRAMATIC FASHION WITH LAST-LAP PASS OF HARVICK AND BUSCH
Brad Keselowski’s Sunday win is his first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victory of the season and 17th of his career.
For the second straight year both NASCAR Sprint Cup drivers at Team Penske have won a race early in the season. In 2014, Keselowski won the third race at Las Vegas while Joey Logano took the seventh event at Texas. They’re ahead of that pace in 2015 as both have wins (Logano in the Daytona 500 and Keselowski today) in the first five events.
This marks the third time Team Penske has won a NSCS race at Auto Club Speedway with Ford. The first two came in back-to-back seasons when Jeremy Mayfield (2000) and Rusty Wallace (2001) went to victory lane.
The win is Fusion’s 66th NSCS triumph since becoming Ford’s flagship vehicle in 2006.
Ford now has 634 all-time NSCS victories.
