Complete Results

Brad Keselowski added to his Nationwide Series point lead scoring his fifth win of the season and first career at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Friday night’s Dollar General 300.

Keselowski ran 51 laps on his last set of tires and easily pulled away from Martin Truex Jr. on the race’s final restart to notch his second victory in four starts with the next generation Nationwide Series car.

“We’ve worked so hard at Penske Racing on this new car program and it showed again tonight,” said Keselowski after notching his 11th career series win.

“I've never been so disappointed to run second," said Truex Jr. after following Keselowski across the finish line in his Diamond-Waltrip Racing Toyota.

Keselowski’s Penske Racing teammate Justin Allgaier finished third with Joey Logano and pole sitter Clint Bowyer rounding out the top five.

Kyle Busch, Reed Sorenson, Aric Almirola, Ryan Newman and Kevin Harvick completed the first ten finishers.

Danica Patrick wound up 21st in the JR Motorsports Chevrolet for her career best NASCAR finish.

“We had some issues with the car tonight but again overall I think we made gains,” said Patrick, who announced earlier in the day her plans for 2011 which will include a similar Nationwide Series schedule. “I’ll look forward to coming back to Charlotte next year.”

Keselowski stretched his lead to a whopping 450 points over Carl Edwards with the victory.

The NASCAR Nationwide Series now heads to Gateway International Raceway next Saturday afternoon.
