Brad Keselowski ducked underneath Kyle Busch to take the lead with 10 laps to go Friday night and won the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Richmond International Raceway.

Keselowski had to hold off a final charge from Kevin Harvick, but after Harvick closed within a few car lengths, Keselowski kept him at bay and slightly expanded his margin in the final laps to win the three-way dual among some of NASCAR's most aggressive and daring drivers.

The victory was the 21st of Keselowski's career in the series and second on the 0.75-mile oval.

Harvick was followed across the finish line by Busch, whose streak of three consecutive victories in the series came to an end, and Brian Vickers and Regan Smith.
