A late-race debris caution cost Keselowski a significant lead and sent the field onto pit road. The No. 2 driver returned to the track in first, but lost two positions to Chase contenders when the green waved. Keselowski finished the Ford EcoBoost 400 third.
Keselowski also finished third last year behind two Chase contenders. In 2013 he finished sixth, which has made him one of the top values on this track. Nov 22 - 8:16 PM

Brad Keselowski ran well in the Quicken Loans Race for Heroes 500 at Phoenix International Raceway and scored a solid top-10 finish in ninth, but since he was one of three current Chasers to sustain damage at Martinsville Speedway three weeks ago, it was not enough to elevate him to the final round of the Championship. Keselowski was the fifth-best Chase contender, but he needed to win to advance.

For much of the beginning and middle part of the season, Penske Racing was the class of the field and it seems strange to not see them included in the final four, but both Keselowski and Joey Logano will be good fantasy values at Homestead-Miami Speedway in the season finale.

Brad Keselowski led 312 of the 334 laps at Texas Motor Speedway, but he lost the lead to Jimmie Johnson with four laps remaining. Keselowski needed the victory to guarantee his spot in the Chase and he is now nearly in a must-win-to-advance situation next week at Phoenix International Raceway.

Keselowski dominated the race and earned a ton of points, which made him a great fantasy NASCAR value. Players often have to look at the bigger picture in order to win their league. Keselowski’s 332 laps led is a new track record for that mark. He could conceivably point his way into the race since his is 19 markers behind the cutoff mark, but he needs at least two of his competitors to have trouble.

Sprint Cup driver (#2 Ford Fusion) Brad Keselowski won the O'Reilly Auto Parts Challenge, his 34th victory in 224 NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) races.

This is his second victory and eighth top-10 NXS finish in 2015. It is his second victory and 12th top-10 finish in 16 NXS races at Texas Motor Speedway. He started the #22 Discount Tire Ford Mustang second in the lineup and led a race-high 62 laps in the 200-lap event. Keselowski is ineligible for driver points in this series but he did earn owner points. Roger Penske has clinched the 2015 NXS owners championship with the #22 Ford.

Final practice for the AAA Texas 500 has been delayed until after the completion of the XFINITY race, time and weather permitting.

For the best competition, practice is essential. Most teams worked primarily on qualification trim Friday and need seat time in race trim. If practice is completely cancelled, fantasy owners should concentrate on drivers with top-fives and -10s in the most recent Texas Motor Speedway races.

NBC’s Nate Ryan reported from the track that three Chase drivers, Brad Keselowski, Joey Logano, and Kevin Harvick, each sit on three penalties for failing inspection. If they earn a fourth penalty, they will lose pit stall selection at the next track, which could come either at Phoenix International Raceway or Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Keselowski has already incurred this penalty once and it was probably part of the reason he was not in contention for the victory at Kansas Speedway. Dale Earnhardt Jr. has incurred that penalty this week at Texas Motor Speedway and fantasy owners want to watch for the impact. Keselowski and Logano specifically need to be in contention to win given how deep in the points they are.

Brad Keselowski scored his first pole at Texas Motor Speedway with a speed of 196.929 mph. He currently sits sixth in the standings, 24 points behind the cutoff mark needed to advance to the next Chase round.

Keselowski, Kurt Busch, and Joey Logano each need to win to have an easy path to the Championship round and starting from the pole is a good start for the No. 2 team. Keselowski also won the pole at Kansas Speedway three weeks ago, but did not get to pick the best pit stall because of a penalty.
Nov 6 - 7:44 PM

Brad Keselowski posted the fastest single lap in the first practice session for the AAA Texas 500. His top speed was 197.059 mph.

Keselowski has been solid on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks this year with a sweep of the top 10, but he now faces a must-win situation if he wants to advance in the Chase. Even if he misses the top spot, this speed puts him in a good position to finish among the top five.
Nov 6 - 2:23 PM

Brad Keselowski is batting 0.667 in regard to top-10s in his last nine short track races. His last two attempts at Bristol Motor Speedway and Richmond International Raceway this fall ended in top-10s.

Fortunately for his odds this week his most recent top-five came at Martinsville in March when he finished second to Denny Hamlin. All eight of the current Chase contenders should contend for top-10s and those with top-fives will gain momentum.

Brad Keselowski failed to lead a single lap of the 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway, but he was in fourth-place when the checkers waved. That gave him 3,111 points at the end of the race, which was enough to allow him to advance to the Eliminator round.

Last year Keselowski had to win this race in order to advance to the Eliminator so some pressure was off his shoulders this week. His best opportunity to run well in the next three races will come at Texas Motor Speedway in two weeks where he had a controversial finish to last year’s edition of that race.
Oct 25 - 7:50 PM

Brad Keselowski posted the fastest single lap in final practice for the 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway. His top speed was 196.423 mph.

Most drivers made single car runs, but Keselowski was part of a two-car tandem along with Ryan Blaney that caught a third car exiting turn four early in the session. He is the defending winner of this race and that affects his handicap more than this top speed.
Oct 23 - 5:31 PM

Last year Brad Keselowski crashed in three of his four plate attempts. The one race in which he raced cleanly to the end was the one he won: last year’s edition of this race at Talladega SuperSpeedway.

Keselowski already has one incident-free race on the big tracks in 2015 and that also came at Talladega; he finished 22nd in the Geico 500. Last year Keselowski was in a must-win situation, but this season he only needs a solid run,
Oct 23 - 4:04 PM

Brad Keselowski finished ninth in the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway, which was his ninth result of sixth through 10th in the past 14 races.

Keselowski also has three runner-up finishes in that span of races as well as two results outside the top 10. His most likely results in the next several unrestricted oval races will be in that same range.
Oct 18 - 10:11 PM

Brad Keselowski backed up his pole winning speed on Friday with the fastest time in the second practice session for the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway. His top speed was 189.960 mph. That is significantly slower than his pole speed of 195.503.

Keselowski still has the deficit of having to pick his pit stall after all others had done so, but that will be softened during long green flag segments. Keselowski should be able to overcome the problem and challenge for a top-five, but a late-race caution could be problematic.
Oct 17 - 12:30 PM

Brad Keselowski posted the fastest lap in the final session of qualification for the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway with a 195.503 mph circuit. He won his 10th career pole, and will lead the field to green on Sunday.

Keselowski will not get to pick his pit stall until all of the other drivers have done so, however. He is being penalized by NASCAR for having four written infractions in recent weeks. Keselowski will be at a deficit during the race unless there is a lot of attrition.
