Brad Keselowski wins XFINITY race at Texas Motor Speedway

Taking advantage of some misfortune suffered by other top contenders, Brad Keselowski rolled to victory in the O'Reilly Auto Parts Challenge XFINITY Series race at Texas Motor Speedway on Saturday.

Kevin Harvick finished second, followed by Austin Dillon.

Kyle Larson was leading the race, but had been battling a left-front tire rub, when the tire suddenly went down and blew apart on Lap 176, sending Larson spinning in his No. 42 Chevrolet and ending his day.

On the subsequent restart, Austin Dillon beat Keselowski, Harvick and Erik Jones off pit road to come out the leader. But with 11 laps to go, as Keselowski and Dillon were waging an ongoing battle for the lead, Harvick forced the issue by going high and making it three wide at the 1.5-mile track.

Keselowski ended up surging ahead then, leaving Harvick to battle Dillon for second place.

It was Keselowski's second series win of the season in the No. 22 Team Penske Ford that he drives only on a part-time basis. The full-time Sprint Cup driver will start from the pole in Sunday's AAA Texas 500 Chase race at the track.
