Kevin Harvick Wins Pole for Brickyard 400

Kevin Harvick Wins Pole for Brickyard 400

Geoff Burke/Getty Images for NASCAR(INDIANAPOLIS) — Kevin Harvick won the pole for Sunday’s Brickyard 400 on Saturday.
Harvick was followed by Jeff Gordon, and Brad Keselowski for the top three spots.
“I think that we certainly look at all the Hendrick cars and the Stewart-Haas cars … and Penske, to me, is the team to beat outside of what we have,” Gordon said. “I’m pretty sure all those groups have their best stuff here.”
Keselowski and Jimmie Johnson have three wins this season.
“When you think you really understand what’s going on, you never know what somebody else has in their hand — much like if you were playing a game of poker,” Keselowski said. “We think that we have the two strongest hands with Penske and Hendrick, and certainly that’s been the case to this date in the season, but you just don’t know what’s out there.”
Gordon is the points leader and has one win this season.
“To be on the front row, 20 years after my first win, I get excited about that,” Gordon said.
Indiana native Ryan Newman won last year at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Keselowski Wins At Kentucky Again

Sean Gardner/Getty Images(SPARTA, Ky.) — For the second time this year, Brad Keselowski found himself in victory lane after winning the Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway. Keselowski becomes the first ever repeat winner at the track as he cemented his spot in the Chase for the Cup.
Keselowski started on the pole and led 199 of the 267 laps to get the win. He had to weave his way through traffic, sitting in sixth place after a restart. On lap 248, Keselowski was able to make his move and get past Kyle Busch for the lead. Busch went on to finish second in the race.
“I knew it was going to be a dogfight to get back to Kyle and then race him,” Keselowski said. “We got there with a really fast car and I hit the perfect run on him with traffic. Next thing I knew, we were there. It feels really good to get that second win.”
Ryan Newman placed third while Matt Kenseth and Dale Earnhardt, Jr. rounded out the top five. The 2012 Cup champion posted his ninth top-10 finish of the season and moved up one spot in to fourth place in the standings.

Brad Keselowski Looking Forward to Michigan

Brad Keselowski Looking Forward to Michigan

Streeter Lecka/Getty Images For NASCAR(NEW YORK) — Brad Keselowki is hoping to pick up his second checkered flag of the season at the Michigan 400 on Sunday.
Another win for Keselowski would inevitably lock up a spot in the chase for the Sprint Cup championship.
“It’s a great opportunity to come home to Michigan, which is my home state, certainly my home racetrack, with cars that have been just blistering fast this year,” Keselowski said on Tuesday.
“I’m really, really happy where we’re at as a team and how things are progressing and kind of feel like we’re turning a corner to getting back into championship form here as we hit the month of June,” Keselowski continued.  “It kind of gives me some goosebumps knowing that we have an opportunity to, I guess, one, run for another championship in my eyes as it stands right now, and two, win a big Cup race at my home track, and both of them are very realistic at this time.  A lot of things good going on, and I’m just really excited.”
Keselowski’s first win of the season came at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on March 9. He has won two poles in the No. 2 Miller Lite Ford for Team Penske this season.

Earnhardt Jr. Earns First Win at Pocono

Earnhardt Jr. Earns First Win at Pocono

Jamie Squire/Getty Images(LONG POND, Pa.) — Dale Earnhardt Jr. earned his second win of the season, his first at Pocono Raceway, Sunday when he won the Pocono 400.
Earnhardt passed Brad Keselowski with five laps remaining to secure his first multiple win season since 2004.
Keselowski led the race for 95 laps but had a piece of debris in his grille that caused his engine to run hot. Keselowski tried to clean the debris off the grille with five laps remaining but it allowed Earnhardt to pass him. Keselowksi was never able to regain the lead as he finishes second for a second straight race.
“Running really, really hot and the motor was going to blow up,” Keselowski told The Motor Racing Network. “So I had to do something. I tried to follow the 10 there in the corner and clear the debris off. Just checked up too much. I thought I had a little more room than I did. The team did a heck of a job. I just messed up a little bit there. I had a really good car.”
Kurt Busch finished third followed by Denny Hamlin and Kyle Larson.

Jimmie Johnson Wins Second Consecutive Sprint Cup Race

Jimmie Johnson Wins Second Consecutive Sprint Cup Race

Jerry Markland/Getty Images(DOVER, Del.) — Jimmie Johnson is at it again.  The six-time Sprint Cup champion took home the checkered flag for the second consecutive weekend after a win at Dover International Speedway on Sunday.
Johnson won last weekend’s Coca-Cola 600.
Brad Keselowski won the pole and made a late rally, but fell short and finished in second.
“It’s amazing that we can stay on top of things here with the different generation car, different rules, different tires,” Johnson said. “This place just fits my style and (crew chief) Chad Knaus’ style.”
Kyle Busch’s bid at a sweep this weekend took a turn for the worst after the No. 18 Toyota slammed into the wall 124 laps into the 400-lap race and was forced into the garage. Busch won the Nationwide Series race earlier in the weekend.
Matt Kenseth, Clint Bowyer and Denny Hamlin rounded out the top five.
