Brad Keselowski overcame electrical problems to hold off Kyle Busch and win the Boyd Gaming 300 Nationwide Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

It was his first win in Las Vegas.

The 30-year-old Keselowski had his fair share of troubles during the race. He lost three spots early in the race after sliding in and through his pit box. He also lost power due to a bad alternator which forced him to shut down his car.

But the Rochester Hills, Michigan resident worked his way through all the traffic to win his 28th career win in the Nationwide Series.

Rounding out the top-five were Kyle Larson who was third, Dale Earnhardt Jr. fourth and Chase Elliott fifth. It was Elliott’s first top-five finish.

The son of the late Dale Earnhardt Sr. has won the award every year since 2003.

Earnhardt won the award at the Myers Brothers Luncheon at Wynn’s The Encore.

The award is presented annually by the National Motorsports Press Association.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. has two primary sponsors in Diet Mountain Dew and the National Guard.

However, he received some unexpected when Diet Mountain Dew will be spending less money next year on his Hendrick Motorsports’ #88 Chevrolet.

The son of the legendary Dale Earnhardt, who ended a long winless streak with a win earlier in the year, says that the majority of the season is set with National Guard’s sponsorship.

Dale Jr. has 19 wins, 179 Top 10 finishes and 11 poles in his Sprint Cup career.

SPARTA, KENTUCKY — Driving his backup car, Brad Keselowski raced to his third win of the year, grabbing the lead with 55 laps to go and held off all challengers Saturday night in the NASCAR Quaker State 400 race at Kentucky Speedway.

Brad Keselowski's winning car

This year’s race went smooth as silk after track and Kentucky government officials spent the 365 days widening ramps, roads and highways and added 20,000 parking spaces. The initial Cup race in 2011 was marred by severe traffic jams and congestion which resulted in thousands of angry fans that got turned away due to no parking spaces being available.

The 28-year-old Keselowski, who is from the Detroit suburb of Rochester Hills, Michigan, won his seventh win in his five years in the Sprint Cup Series. He has two other wins this season at Bristol and Talladega.

The always-energetic and humorous Keselowski, was driving his backup car after wrecking the right side of his top car into the wall in a collision with Juan Pablo Montoya during practice earlier in the week during practice sessions. That accident occured on his first lap on the track.

Kasey Kahne came through with a late surge to finish second; Denny Hamlin was third, Dale Earnhardt Jr. came in fourth and Jeff Gordon was fifth.

2011 race champion Kurt Busch had the dominant car early in the first half of the race before he was bumped into a wall and had to battle suspension problems and a shock absorber which dropped into a non-contention state.

Tony Stewart was never a factor as he fell to the back of the pack with fuel-injection problems.

Jimmie Johnson broke loose on a restart three laps from the ending of the Southern 500 and held over the weekend to give Hendrick Motorsports its 200th Sprint Cup win.

Johnson, whom you can never count out of a race, seemed like he would come up short on low fuel and worn tires and with Tony Stewart and Kyle Busch right on his heels and he was chasing Kurt Busch and Ryan Newman spun out with six laps left to go at Darlington Raceway.

Once the green flag was dropped, Johnson took off from Stewart and cruised to his first win since Kansas last October, breaking a 16-race winless drought for the five-time NASCAR champion and the Rick Hendrick racing team.

It was Johnson’s third win at the South Carolina track, but the first since he swept the 2004 events, the last season Darlington had two cup races.

Denny Hamlin finished second, followed by Stewart, Kyle Busch and Martin Truex, Jr.

Dale Earnhardt, Jr. finished 17 and his Sprint Cup winless streak goes to 140 laps.
