BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) -- Brad Keselowski is closing in on a spot in
the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. Keselowski won Saturday night's race at Bristol Motor Speedway, his third victory of the
Keselowski has been on a tear since breaking his ankle in a
crash while testing earlier this month. Since the injury, he's won
at Pocono, finished second at Watkins Glen, third at Michigan and
now has the Bristol.
Keselowski's three wins should be enough to at least earn him
one of the two wild cards into the 12-driver Chase. The top 10 in
the standings after the Sept. 10 race at Richmond make the Chase,
along with two wild cars for the drivers with the most wins who
aren't already eligible.
Keselowsk was ranked 21st in the standings before his accident
at Road Atlanta. He's now sitting in 11th place with two races left
before the Chase.
Martin Truex Jr. finished second and Jeff Gordon was third.
