It was the Penske Racing driver’s ninth victory of his 117-start Nationwide career.

Carl Edwards of Roush Fenway Racing, who twice was able to briefly edge past Keselowski on late restarts only to fall back behind, finished second.

“This has been a dream season so far,” Keselowski, who led a race-high 98 laps, said. “Awesome car, awesome team.”

Edwards, who moved from fourth in points to third, said, “That’s a good day for us.”

Paul Menard, who, like Keselowski and Edwards is running full time in the Sprint Cup Series, was third.

Justin Allgaier, Keselowski’s Penske Racing teammate who started the race from the pole, finished fourth.

Mike Bliss was fifth and Brad Coleman sixth.

Filling out the top 10 were Reed Sorenson, Steve Wallace, Scott Riggs and Matt Dibenedetto.

Keselowski, who started the race one point ahead of Kyle Busch – who skipped Saturday night’s race to concentrate on his Cup effort – finished the race 196 points up on Busch and 277 ahead of Edwards.
