“I might be a little biased, but I thought that was the best race I’ve ever seen in my life,” said Keselowski when he hopped out of the car in Victory Circle.

Keselowski  continues to lead the series championship standings.

Martin Truex Jr. finished second in the No. 00 Out! Pet Care Toyota, while Keselowski’s teammate Justin Allgaier came home third in the No. 12 Verizon Wireless Dodge. Full results are available here.

“It was just a little bit too tight, and we just couldn’t quite clear Brad for the lead,” said Truex Jr.

The race included eight cautions and 16 lead changes among nine drivers.
