Nationwide: Keselowski steals win from Stenhouse

It's Keselowski's 14th Nationwide victory in 159 starts, which makes him only the third driver in Nationwide this year to post multiple wins (the others being Kyle Busch with six victories and Carl Edwards with five.) Edwards himself was hampered by a late pit lane speeding penalty on lap 180 which dropped him to 14th place for the restart and not enough time to make it to the front by the end of the race.

The main draw for Saturday's race had been expected to be X Games star Travis Pastrana making his NASCAR Nationwide Series début. However, Pastrana was injured in competition on Thursday night and suffered fractures to his right foot and ankle after crashing performing a complex motorcycle trick, and was forced to pull out of the Indianapolis race.

Last year's winner, Kyle Busch, opted out of defending his title here in the Nationwide Series' final outing at Lucas Oil Raceway - previously known as Indianapolis Raceway Park - where it has raced every year since the start of the series in 1982. It has had the same sponsor (supermarket chain Kroger) ever since that first outing 29 years ago. Keselowski goes into the record books as the 23rd and last driver to win in 30 races here.

Full race results, qualifying and practice times available.
