Brad Keselowski passed teammate Ryan Blaney with 12 laps to go to win the Nationwide Series race Friday night at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Keselowski passed Blaney on the outside on the straightaway and cruised to his fourth victory in nine starts this year and 31st Nationwide Series win of his career.

Kyle Busch, who was won a record 69 races in the series, finished second.

Matt Kenseth was third, Blaney finished fourth, and Kyle Larson, who won here earlier this year, was fifth.

Points leader Chase Elliott finished in ninth place and extended his points lead over Regan Smith, who was 11th.

Ty Dillon, who entered the night third in the Nationwide standings, was involved in a six-car crash on lap 76, ending his night.
