Busch, Keselowski Lead Resurgent Penske Team
BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) -- Kurt Busch and Brad Keselowski both appear on their way to NASCAR's season-ending Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.

This weekend's race is in Michigan, which makes it even more important for the Penske Racing duo.

Owner Roger Penske isn't expected to be on hand this weekend, but his drivers look primed for more success in a race that takes on a little extra significance for this team. Penske Automotive Group is based in the Detroit area, and Penske played a leading role in the city's successful bid to host the 2006 Super Bowl.

Keselowski qualified in sixth place for Sunday's race, and Busch is 13th.
