Nationwide - Indianapolis - Race results

Brad Keselowski took the lead of the Kroger 200 Nationwide Series race from Ricky Stenhouse Jr. for the first time on the penultimate restart - and held on to claim the win.
Brad Keselowski won the 30th Annual Kroger 200 Nationwide Series race at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis on Saturday evening, despite not leading a single lap until nearly the very end.

Keselowki finally took the lead from Ricky Stenhouse Jr. on lap 198 under a restart, while Stenhouse - who led 188 laps during the night - even had second place taken from him when an intensive review of the video footage confirmed that James Buescher had taken the position despite the timing screens showing a dead heat between the two.

It's Keselowski's 14th Nationwide victory in 159 starts, and he's the 23rd and last driver to win at Lucas Oil Raceway in 30 races there as the track hosts its final Nationwide event.
