Brad Keselowski put a season worth of frustration behind him with a win at the 1.5-mile Charlotte Motor Speedway on Saturday night.
The Bank of America 500 began with Jeff Gordon on the pole but it would not take long for the field to learn that the No. 48 car of Johnson was the one to beat. A late caution would significantly alter the race as Johnson slipped up on the restart setting up a battle for the win between Kasey Kahne and Keselowski.
