|Keselowski Wins at Talladega
|TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) -- Brad Keselowski won the Nationwide Series race at Talladega Superspeedway in a wild end to a NASCAR doubleheader.
It was nearly a replay of the Sprint Cup finish Sunday that saw Kevin Harvick nip Jamie McMurray at the finish line. McMurray got loose on the green-white checkered laps, triggering a wreck that nearly sent Dennis Setzer over the fence.
Setzer crashed into the safety fence and his car was on fire as it skidded down the track. It was similar to last year's Cup race at Talladega when Carl Edwards sailed into the fence, allowing Keselowski to pull off the surprise win.
Keselowski was one of 10 drivers who pulled double duty and drove nearly 850 miles.
