Keselowski wins at Bristol

BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) -- Brad Keselowski grabbed his first win of the season Sunday with a strong run at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Keselowski led a race-high 231 laps and battled back and forth with Matt Kenseth for the final third of the race. A late caution forced Penske Racing to quickly decide if Keselowski should pit or try to hold off Kenseth on one final restart.

Keselowski stayed out, easily held off Kenseth on the restart and drove away to put Penske and Dodge in Victory Lane.

Through four races this season, all four manufacturers in NASCAR have won a race.

Kenseth finished second in a Ford and was followed by an impressive showing from the three Michael Waltrip Racing Toyotas -- Martin Truex was third, Clint Bowyer fourth and Brian Vickers was fifth.
