Keselowski had to battle Greg Biffle for the win, after the two got away from the pack on lap 251. Keselowski managed to cross the finish line 0.261 seconds in front, radioing to team owner Roger Penske "that's what you pay me to do, R.P." Richmond is Keselowski's eight win this season in the Nationwide Series.
"If we lost this race, and I didn't take tires, I'd be so mad," said Keselowski according to NASCAR. "We came down pit road and got those tires and made the right move on Greg on the last lap, and it all worked out."
"This was a total team effort by everyone on the No. 12 Penske Dodge Charger," said Keselowski. "Jay made a great call at the end of the race to get us back on the lead lap. Our pit stops were strong all night. It wasn't the prettiest way to get a top-15 finish, but you have to be able to grind out finishes when your car is not where you want it. We did that tonight."
The Penske driver was followed across the finish line by Greg Biffle, Jamie McMurray, Kyle Busch and Carl Edwards. Keselowski's win somewhat compensates the 50 points NASCAR took away last week after a post-race inspection.
