Keselowski overcomes pit issues to win Nationwide race at Michigan


BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) -- Brad Keselowski grabbed the lead on a restart with eight laps to go, then pulled away to win the NASCAR Nationwide race at Michigan International Speedway on Saturday.

Carl Edwards finished second, barely edging out a charging Kyle Busch. Justin Allgaier was fourth, followed by Paul Menard.

It was the fourth Nationwide victory of the season and 10th of his career for Keselowski, who holds a dominant lead in the series points standings.

Meanwhile, it was another rough day at the racetrack for Danica Patrick, who went down a lap to the leaders early on and struggled to a 27th-place finish.
