“Bad Brad” Lives Up To His Nickname! Keselowski Wins Pocono 500

Despite a broken ankle and a strained lower back “Bad Brad” Keselowski won the Pocono 500 by holding off Kyle Bush for the last 15 laps.

LONG POND, Pa. — Brad Keselowski‘s challenge to the rest of the Sprint Cup field: “I can beat you with a broken leg.”

And he did.

Staying out on the track on old tires under a caution with 21 laps left in Sunday’s rain-interrupted Good Sam RV Insurance 500 at Pocono Raceway, Keselowski pulled away from Kyle Busch after a restart on Lap 185 of 200 to secure his second victory of the season — despite driving with a broken left ankle.

Keselowski, who was injured in a hard crash during testing Wednesday at Road Atlanta, kept Busch at bay over the final 10 laps. With Sunday’s victory — the third of his career — Keselowski’s fortunes took a dramatic turn with respect to the Chase.

Having cracked the top 20, Keselowski is in position to claim the first wild-card spot, being the only driver in positions 11-20 with more than one victory. Keselowski leaves Pocono 18th in the standings, having gained three positions Sunday.

Kyle Busch came home second, followed by Kurt Busch, Jimmie Johnson and Ryan Newman. Jeff Gordon, Carl Edwards, Greg Biffle, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Paul Menard completed the top 10.

He beat the best today with no excuses.
