Brad Keselowsl won the crash free Federated Auto Parts 400 NASCAR Cup Series race at Richmond Raceway. Keselowski earlier in the week predicted his victory in the race during a NASCAR radio show broadcast. Keselowski backed up his prediction, and in victory lane made another prediction that he would be a threat in the seasons championship race at Phoenix Raceway in November. Keselowski led a total of 192 laps beating 2nd place Martin Truex Jr. to the stripe by a blistering 2.568-second advantage.

“It was a great race for us we drove the same car Saturday as we used to win at New Hampshire earlier this summer. “I wanted to do a really cool burnout with it, but I want this car for Phoenix.”

“I’m really pumped. I don’t want to look too far ahead. The next round is going to be really difficult, but still, I’m really pumped about this performance and the way we’ve run on short tracks.”

“If we can get to Phoenix, we’re going to be really good,” Keselowski promised, not wanting to look too far ahead.
