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.
