Brad Keselowski Punches His Ticket In The Pits

Sweet relief for Brad Keselowski. The 2012 champion gets that elusive first victory of 2018 in the Southern 500. The win effectively gets him into the playoffs. It's been an interesting year for Brad Keselowski and the Penske gang. Thanks in no small part to Stewart-Haas Racing, Ford is having a strong year.
