|Keselowski Wins Nationwide Race Again
|MADISON, Ill. (AP) -- Brad Keselowski won the NASCAR Nationwide 5-Hour Energy 250 on Saturday, rolling past Reed Sorenson with two laps remaining at Gateway International Raceway.
Keselowski, who has a large lead in the series standings, earned his sixth Nationwide win of the season and No. 12 for his career.
Mike Bliss finished second, followed by pole-sitter Justin Allgaier.
Keselowski took on four tires during a pit stop with 10 laps remaining. The move paid off as he rallied from fifth place with five laps left.
The Nationwide stop likely was the final race at Gateway. Dover Motorsports, owner of the track, has put the property up for sale and has not requested any racing dates for 2011.
