Brad Keselowski Puts On Driving Exhibition To Win 2nd Annual Pocono Green 250

Brad Keselowski shows just how strong his Xfinity ride was wit a great run and win at the 2nd Annual Pocono Green 250. Dean Patton Photo.

Long Pond, PA - RIS - Okay, Brad Keselowski, well, what can I say… he overcomes a denied “Bumb and Run” by Elliott Sadler and runs down a pack of solid cars to make a LAST lap pass coming out of Turn One at Pocono to end a 46 Race drought for the win. Yep, that’s exactly what happened….. Brad Keselowski took the SKF Ford #22 to Pocono Raceway’s Victory Lane in a fashion that's not been seen for a long time…… Rubber Doughnuts on the doors, and one heck of a great drive by Brad places his ride in position to win it and darn if he does not pull it off.

With 17 Laps remaining and Kyle Larson; on worn rubber, in command both Brad Keselowski and Justin Algaier battle one another, and put that battle aside to run down the leader. In the end Keselowski had some horses and as he was running down Larson it appeared that they went three wide, but it was that close it just appeared that way. Both Keselowski and Allgaier would make the pass putting Larson into third, and then they would battle coming out of Turn Three, but Allgaier had used up all he had and Keselowski would prevail for one to remember.

Second place would be Xfinity regular Justin Allgaier wheeling the Allen Myers Chevrolet #7, followed closely by Kyle Larson and his ENEOS Chevrolet #42. Elliott Sadler would settle for Fourth in the Dale’s Pale Ale #1. To round out the top five would be Daniel Suarez the chauffeur of the Juniper Toyota #18.

It’s a fast recap of just the top five and I will provide more as soon as possible. See you at the Track!
