Brad Keselowski Takes the Checkered Flag in Atlanta

Brad Keselowski won Sunday’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway in improbable fashion on a day when it looked like no one was going to be able to touch Kevin Harvick.

Thanks to the unintentional generosity of the dominant driver in Sunday's Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500, opportunistic Brad Keselowski won the second Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race of the season.

Kevin Harvick led 292 of the 325 laps at the 1.54-mile track, but a pit road speeding penalty under caution on Lap 311 sent him to the back of the field for the final restart.

That gave Keselowski the chance he needed, and on Lap 319 he surged past Kyle Larson for the top spot and pulled away to win by .564 seconds.


“You never know. That’s how these races are,” Keselowski said. “We had a lot of adversity today, there’s no doubt about that.

“These races aren’t easy. They’re 500 miles and a lot can happen and when you think you’ve got it, they slip away. I know how it goes. This one kind of fell in our lap at the end and my team put it all together when it counted.”
