Brad Keselowski wins at Las Vegas, Full Results for the Kobalt 400


Brad Keselowski won Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway after Dale Earnhardt Jr. ran out of gas mid-way though the last lap.

The driver of the No. 22 Miller Lite Ford Fusion was the first to take the checkered flag ahead of Earnhardt Jr. and Paul Menard. Sunday’s running of the Kobalt 400 (formerly the Kobalt Tools 400) was the first 1.5-mile race of the season.

Joey Logano began the 267 lap race on the pole and after he led early on pit strategy came into play. Jimmy Johnson, Kyle Busch and Brad Keselowski all would see time at the front of the field. Dale Earnhardt Jr. would get to the front of the field during the final round of pitstops.

Keselowski ran down Earnhart Jr. and slipped past him on the final lap after Earnhardt ran out of fuel on the backstretch.

The win all but ensures that Keselowski will be in the Chase. He did not win until race No. 31 at Charlotte last year.
