CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Brad Keselowski will return to the Nationwide Series this week at Atlanta after missing the last five races with a broken ankle.
Keselowski, the defending Nationwide champion, has not raced in that series since breaking his ankle in a crash during a test session earlier this month at Road Atlanta.
He did not miss any Sprint Cup Series events during the stretch. Since the injury, Keselowski has two wins, a second and a third in four Cup races.
He's charged through the series standings, too. Keselowski's victory at Bristol Motor Speedway on Saturday night moved him to 11th in the standings, a step closer toward a berth in Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.
