RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Brad Keselowski passed Brian Scott on a restart with 11 laps to go Friday night and pulled away after another restart with six laps remaining to go to win the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Richmond.
Keselowski has five victories and a runner-up finish in his last six series starts.
Scott, seeking his first victory in 134 starts in the series, led the first 239 laps before Keselowski made the outside groove work for him, finally overtaking Scott on his way to his 25th career victory in the series and the 19th in a row for a Cup Series regular at Richmond.
Scott's team protested that Keselowski jumped the last restart, but to no avail.
Scott was second, followed by Regan Smith, Kyle Busch and Trevor Bayne.
The race was the 1,000th in series history.
