Brad Keselowski has won his fourth consecutive start in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, taking the lead with 17 laps to go and holding off Penske Racing teammate Sam Hornish Jr. to win the Zippo 200 at Watkins Glen International.
Keselowski, driving the No. 22 Ford Mustang, lost the lead to his other Penske teammate, Joey Logano, shortly after a restart with 21 laps to go. But with Logano also trying to stretch his fuel, Keselowski and Hornish both managed to get past him in Turn 1 just four laps later.
From there, Hornish was able to keep the pressure on until the final handful of laps, as Keselowski eventually pulled away to a 1.4-second win.
“I thought he was going to beat me – I tell you what, [Sam’s] a hell of a road course racer,” Keselowski said to ESPN about his final laps. “…I made a couple little mistakes and I thought he’d get me to be quite honest. I was just trying not to make any huge ones.”
Hornish wasn’t able to get the win, but was able to pull within three points of NNS points leader Austin Dillon, who finished 12th on Saturday.
“I was over-driving the crap out of the car trying to pressure Brad into making a mistake,” said Hornish. “I got him to get into Turn 1 hard a couple times, but I just wore my stuff out doing everything I could do to figure out how to keep the pressure on.”
Brian Vickers secured a third-place result after Logano eventually ran out of fuel with two laps remaining (he finished 21st). Fourth place went to Regan Smith, while Elliott Sadler completed the Top 5.
Going back to the NNS championship, the Top 5 is now separated by 18 points. Smith is third at five points behind Dillon, while Sadler is fourth at 12 points back and Vickers is fifth at 18 points back.
