Keselowski makes it a Penske Indy sweep at Brickyard 400

Keselowski makes it a Penske Indy sweep at Brickyard 400

Bowyer won the first stage Monday by 0.285 seconds over Kurt Busch. Ryan Blaney was third.

So maybe a rain-delayed celebration was the ideal tribute for his first career victory at the Brickyard.

Keselowski easily held off second-place finisher Erik Jones for the victory on Monday - his second of the NASCAR season and the 26th of his career.

"I love Jamie McMurray and I want him on my team", said Ganassi. "I used to come here all the time". "Just talking to people from all over who said we wouldn't miss it. People who called in from work and said I'm not going to be there on Monday". "It's frustrating but that's the nature of the beast and we can take this good run as a confidence booster heading into the playoffs".

Lately, nobody has been better than the 32-year-old driver of the No. 7 Chevrolet.

NASCAR's playoffs begin next weekend in Las Vegas and the sanctioning body is eager to get the regular season finale concluded at Indianapolis. Sadler's day ended when he got caught up in a six-car crash on lap 23 of the 250-mile race on Indy's 2.5-mile oval. The only real challenge he faced over the final stage came from Reddick, his teammate with JR Motorsports, the team owned by retired NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. "Having no practice here this weekend, the crew gave me an awesome vehicle".

That cone is a graphical representation of a storm's probable track, according to the National Hurricane Center . Ilija Cesal told the newspaper he wouldn't worry about buying extra water or other supplies for a few more days.

He tried to pull side by side with Allgaier. "I mean, I don't know what they're doing, crashing with a couple of laps to go". "It's awesome. It's pretty incredible". The race went green with three laps to go and Clint Bowyer, in second, spun his tires.

The cleanup left the field with a first stage, one-lap shootout that John Hunter Nemechek barely won as the cars went four wide.

In other words, he figures to be a step up in terms of battling for wins, something that has been tougher for Chip Ganassi Racing in 2018 as it has struggled a bit adjusting to the new Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. Daniel Hemric edged out Christopher Bell for the Stage 2 victory in a near-photo finish. Hemric drives the No. 21 Chevy for Richard Childress and Bell competes in the No. 20 Toyota for Gibbs' team. Six more yellow flags came out during the race including the crash that collected six cars and Pearce's crash into a tire wall that briefly brought out a red flag so track workers could fix the damage.

For the second straight year, the Xfinity drivers experimented with a different aero package than the Cup Series.

Series officials and race organizers wanted the Brickyard moved out of the searing July heat in hopes of boost attendance with cooler temperatures around the track.

"I've got to give credit to my crew chief, Paul Wolfe, as he made a heck of a call to pit there, "Keselowski said shortly after emerging from his auto, "We pitted late in that run and the yellow came out and we had new tires and we started eighth and it was kind of like they gave me the ball and I had to make a play".
