KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - Brad Keselowksi held off Dale Earnhardt Jr to win Sunday's NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Kansas Speedway and pick up his first victory of the year.
Keselowski led the final nine laps, conserving just enough fuel to stave off Earnhardt and snap a 75-race winless streak.
Earnardt finished second for the second week in a row in a fuel mileage race. Earnhardt appeared to have enough to make a late charge on Keselowski. That push never came - though Earnhardt did move up to third in the points standings.
Denny Hamlin was third, followed by Jeff Gordon and Carl Edwards.
Polesitter Kurt Busch led for 152 laps Sunday and finished ninth. He had to stop for gas as the leader with 10 laps remaining.
