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.

Kyle Busch had the strongest car all night.

Busch, the younger brother of Kurt Busch, took the lead away from Joey Logano 18 laps from the finish to win his fifth Nationwide Series race of the season.

The Saturday night win was his second in three years at Darlington.

Busch started from the pole and led 107 of the 147 laps to finish one second ahead of Elliott Sadler.

Danica Patrick on the pole for the 55th running of the Daytona 500; first female to achieve feat

Race car driver Danica Patrick is used to making history on the track.

She was the first woman to lead laps at the Indianapolis 500 in 2009 finishing third and to win a motor sport event in the IndyCar in Japan in 2008.

Her most recent “first” is winning the Daytona 500 pole winner last week. By doing so, she became the first woman to grab the top spot for any race in NASCAR’s top circuit.

Patrick captured the pole with a lap at 196.434 mph around the historic Daytona International Speedway track. Only Jeff Gordon came the closest to taking her spot by being the only other driver to top 196 mph.

Patrick dives the #10 Chevrolet SS.

The previous highest qualifier in a Cup race for a female, was 1977 when Janet Guthrie started ninth at both Bristol and Talladega.

This is good news to Patrick’s long-line of followers, who have seen her struggle in three NASCAR seasons. Her best finish in 10 Sprint Cup races is 17th and she has only one to-five finish in the Nationwide Series where she finished 10th in the standings in 2012.

Joe Gibbs Racing has announced that the organization has signed Kyle Busch to a long-term extension to continue as driver of the #18 Toyota Camry in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

Also, Joe Gibbs Racing will continue to sponsor #54 Monster Energy Toyota in the Nationwide Series that Busch drives.

They sponsor at least 25 races in the Nationwide Series.

Like him or hate him, there is no doubt Busch is a top-notch race car driver. In the Sprint Car Series, he has 24 wins, 141 top 10 finishes and 10 poles. In the Nationwide circuit, he has 51 wins, 163 top 10 finishes and 26 poles.

Busch also drives a NASCAR truck in the Camping World Truck Series where he has 30 wins, 81 top 10 finishes and 12 poles.

The Kansas Speedway had a very exciting finish on Saturday night.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. rallied from two laps down to win the race.

Stenhouse, the defending Nationwide Series champion, earned his sixth win of the 2012 season.

Luck was on Stenhouse’s side as race leader, Kyle Busch ran out of gas heading into the final turn.

A late caution allowed the race to be extended for six more laps, which stretched all cars’ fuel tanks.

Austin Dillon finished second to clinch the manufacturers’ championship for Chevrolet.

Stenhouse survived an accident with Joey Logano early in the race which caused him to fall two laps down. He was able to win due to the fact that his pit sequence was different than the other drivers.
