MARTINSVILLE, VA – Brad Keselowski won Sunday’s NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway in dominating fashion. Keselowski led 446 of 500 laps to capture his second win of the season and the 28th of his Cup Series career.
“The car was really good – this Ford Mustang. You know, Ford worked really hard in the offseason to build these cars and make them real strong and so far, so good. It’s just a great day for our team, awesome execution on pit road and big credit to Doug Yates and all the engine guys. Those guys work really hard and it’s just one of those days you dream of as a race car driver, where you’ve got a great car.” Keselowski said.
Keselowski had to hold off Chase Elliott in the final laps to capture Team Penske’s third win of the season. Go to casinos online and capture your win.
“I don’t know if we were as good as the 9, Chase Elliott. He was really strong, but he passed me there with about 200 to go and I watched him and studied him and kind of broke it down and knew what I had to do to hold him off with that fast of a car and we were able to pull it off that last run with the Reese/Draw Tite Ford.” Keselowski said.
Elliott finished second, Kyle Busch third, Ryan Blaney fourth and Denny Hamlin finished fifth.
Chase Elliott posted his fourth top-10 finish in eight Martinsville Speedway races and second top-10 finish in 2019. See if you can win at goldenrivieracasino.com and capture your top finishes.
“Our NAPA Camaro was good. I felt like we were about as even with him as we could be. When I did get the lead, I felt like there was a little advantage to being out front and being able to work traffic your way and play off it and whatnot. But, yeah, I tried to move up there at the end and I don’t know if I could have got to him.” Elliott said.
Pole-sitter Joey Logano led five laps and finished in 19th place.
