Keselowski edges Dale Jr., wins at Kansas

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- Brad Keselowksi held off Dale Earnhardt Jr. on Sunday to win the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Kansas Speedway.

Keselowski led the final nine laps, conserving just enough fuel to stave off Earnhardt and snap a 75-race winless streak.

Earnardt Earnhardt appeared to have just enough fuel to make a late charge on Keselowski. That push never came -- though Earnhardt did move up to third in the points standings. Last week in Charlotte, Earnhardt gave up the lead on the final lap when he ran out of fuel, and ended up seventh.

Denny Hamlin was third, followed by Jeff Gordon and Carl Edwards.

Polesitter Kurt Busch led for 152 laps Sunday and finished ninth. He had to stop for gas as the leader with 10 laps remaining.
