Keselowski Wins Second Chase Race at Dover
With his fuel gauge heading towards “E” Brad Keselowski took advantage of Jimmie Johnson and Denny Hamlin’s own gas concerns and beat Jeff Gordon to the finish line to win his second Chase For the Sprint Cup race Sunday, the AAA 400, at Dover International Speedway. The win was his second of the NASCAR Chase and put him in the points lead heading into the fourth race of the series at Talladega. What was his strategy?
Crew chief Paul Wolfe didn’t want to reveal too much of his fuel-saving strategy, he conceded the car was ”within a lap or two” or running on fumes. Keselowski raced the last 89 laps without a stop.
”There’s always some risk in calls like that,” Wolfe said. ”We know where we stand. We know what we need to do. We know the guys are racing right now for the championship. I felt like we were as good as anybody on mileage.”
