Keselowski Rolls to Nationwide Victory at Kentucky
SPARTA, Ky. (AP) -- Brad Keselowski won the NASCAR Nationwide race at Kentucky Speedway on Friday night, stretching his fuel over the final 67 laps to pick up his first win in the series this year.

Kevin Harvick was second, followed by Kyle Busch, Kasey Kahne and Elliott Sadler.

Keselowski, the 2010 Nationwide champion, dominated the second half of the race but needed to go light on the gas pedal over the final miles to win for the first time since taking the checkered flag at Gateway last fall.

Joey Logano, who was looking for his fourth straight win at Kentucky, ran out of gas on the last lap and finished 10th.

Sadler took over the Nationwide points lead after Reed Sorenson ran into trouble on pit road and finished 17th.
