Each week, TicketForce brings you up to speed on all of the happenings in music, sports, racing and theatre. This week’s #RacingWrap features Brad Keselowski's big win at the Kolbalt 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, which took place at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway last Sunday.
Sunday's race was full of excitement. Sadly for Dale Earnhardt Jr., he ran out of fuel only a half mile away from victory and 1.531 seconds behind Keselowski. It was a war zone between the two drivers for the last 15 of 267 laps, but Keselowski was the one to emerge victorious.
Brad Keselowski, a driver for the No. 2 team Penske Ford, sped by Dale Earnhardt Jr. for the win at the Sprint Cup Series. Keselowski swept the weekend series for a win that was his first this season and at the Las Vegas Speedway, and the 11th in his Sprint Cup Career.
While not always in the number one spot, Keselowski used “a contrarian fuel-mileage strategy [to stay on track] when the rest of the lead-lap cars came to pit road on lap 156, under the third caution of the race for debris on the backstretch,” according to Reid Spencer from NASCAR Wire Service.
