CLERMONT, Ind. (AP) - Brad Keselowski stayed close to the leaders and then ran strong in the two green-white-checkered laps at the end to win the NASCAR Nationwide Series Kroger 200 on Saturday night.
Keselowski had earned the pole in his previous two races but hadn't won.
It was a good overall day for Keselowski, who earlier in the day qualified fifth for Sunday's Brickyard 400.
James Buescher finished second. Polesitter Ricky Stenhouse Jr. led 189 laps before finishing third. He led by nearly four seconds in lap 175 before the field tightened. Stenhouse moved ahead of Reed Sorenson into the points lead.
NASCAR has announced that the race will move to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway next year after 30 years at Lucas Oil Raceway.
