NASCAR Sprint Cup Series: Brad Keselowski vence em Richmond

Brad Keselowski (Team Penske) venceu na noite desde sábado (06/09), a Federated Auto Parts 400, no Richmond International Raceway, 26ª etapa da NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. Foi a quarta vitória de Keselowski no ano. Jeff Gordon (Hendrick Motorsports) e Clint Bowyer (Michael Waltrip Racing) completaram o pódio.

Pole-position, Keselowski dominou a prova, ldierando 383, das 400 voltas disputadas. No final, Keselowski recebeu a bandeirada com 0s797 de vantagem sobre Gordon. Bowyer foi o terceiro.

Jamie McMurray (Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates) terminou em quarto, seguido por Kevin Harvick (Stewart-Haas Racing), que liderou 17 voltas.

Joey Logano (Team Penske), Kurt Busch (Stewart-Haas Racing), Jimmie Johnson (Hendrick Motorsports), Ran Newman (Richard Childress Racing) e Aric Almirola (Richard Petty Motorsports) completaram os dez primeiros.

A prova teve quatro bandeiras amarelas (por 27 voltas), nenhuma por acidente. A primeira foi de competição, as duas seguintes por detritos na pista. A última, entretanto foi no mínimo curiosa: um fã escalou a cerca de proteção da curva quatro, e tentou invadir a pista. Ele foi retirado por comissários da prova.

Assim ficou a classificação dos 16 pilotos, para o começo do Chase:

Brad Keselowski começa na liderança, com 2012 pontos.
