|Keselowski Races to 5th Nationwide Win
|CONCORD, N.C. (AP) -- Brad Keselowski is piling up the wins in the Nationwide Series.
Keselowski pulled away on a late restart at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Friday night, earning his fifth Nationwide victory of the season.
Keselowski extended his advantage in the season standings to 450 points, leading the final 35 laps.
Martin Truex Jr. finished second, followed by Justin Allgaier, Joey Logano and Clint Bowyer, who started on the pole but had a costly pit-road speeding penalty late.
While Danica Patrick posted her best finish in her nine Nationwide races _ 21st although she was two laps down at the end _ Keselowski had little competition once Kyle Busch had handling problems after halfway through the race.
