Nationwide - Kentucky - Race results

Brad Keselowski turned fuel conservation into a race-winning strategy during Friday night's Feed the Children 300 Nationwide series race at Kentucky Speedway.
A conscious and sustained effort to sustain fuel from the start of the final green-flag run that turned out to last 61 laps gave Brad Keselowski victory on the 1.5 mile Kentucky Speedway in Friday night's Feed the Children 300 Nationwide series race.

Although he had to slow considerably toward the end, he still had enough gas to hold off Kevin Harvick to the chequered flag and claim his 13th Nationwide win in 156 starts, his first at Kentucky in four starts. He did so after dominating the race, leading 132 of the 200 laps.

Polesitter Elliott Sadler was the highest-placed Nationwide series regular in fifth place ahead of fellow regulars Kenny Wallace and Michael Annett.
