Brad Keselowski wins at Talladega

TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) -- Brad Keselowski has won the Sprint Cup Series race at Talladega Superspeedway, where he used a huge push from Kyle Busch to steal the race from Matt Kenseth.

Kenseth was the leader on the green-white-checkered flag restart and lined up on the outside line so that teammate Greg Biffle could push him to the finish. But he got too far away from the pack, making it easy for Keselowski and Busch to catch him.

Busch gave Keselowski a huge shove to get around Kenseth, and then Keselowski put enough separation on Busch to hold on for the win.

It sent Penske Racing to Victory Lane for the second time this season in NASCAR with Keselowski.

Busch finished second for the second day in a row.
