Keselowski wins Nationwide 200 at Dover

Brad Keselowski won the Nationwide 200 at Dover, Del., Saturday after Kyle Busch had a flat tire on a restart with two laps to go.

Keselowski ran third on the restart but after Busch's tire blew Keselowski passed Joey Logano to take the lead. Keselowski led only those final two laps for his first Nationwide victory of the season and his seventh top-10 finish of the year.

Keselowski, who led only the final few hundred feet for his first Sprint Cup victory last month at Talladega, Ala., picked up his third career Nationwide victory. His first of two wins last year came at Nashville, the site of next week's race.

Keselowski failed to qualify for Sunday's 400-mile Cup race at Dover.

Busch led the most laps with 108, but ended up finishing 17th. Logano finished second, Clint Bowyer was third, Brian Vickers fourth and Carl Edwards fifth.
