Brad Keselowski goes back to back at Bristol. Keselowski won his fifth NASCAR Sprint Cup race without any doubt to it. At leading a race high 232 laps, also a career high for Keselowski, he gains 8 positions in the points to 13th.

Not to be forgotten, Matt Kenseth fought Keselowski hard for the win. Constantly battling, Kenseth was simple out run by the stronger car of Keselowski.

Early problems


Pre-race favorites at Bristol usually include 5-time winner Kyle Busch but today would not be Busch's day. Busch was caught up in a wreck early in the race along with Carl Edwards, Marcos Ambrose and Kevin Harvick. The wreck occurred when Kasey Kahne and Regan Smith were battling for position, Kahne thought he was clear of Smith but was not.
