Brad Keselowski picked up the win Sunday (May 31) in the 2020 Food City Presents the Supermarket Heroes 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway, capitalizing on contact between leaders Chase Elliott and Joey Logano in the final laps.
Keselowski led four times for 115 laps, including the final three circuits.
“I could see Joey and Chase were getting really racy there and I didn’t know what was gonna happen, but I knew if I kept my eye open something good might happen and, sure enough, it did,” Keselowski said.
“An incredible day. I’m so happy for the team. This was a never-give-up effort.”
Clint Bowyer finished second, followed by Jimmie Johnson, Kyle Busch and Erik Jones to round out the Top-5 finishers.
Keselowski is now tied with Dale Jarrett with 32 wins on the Cup Series all-time wins list.
Keselowski and Jarrett, both past champions of the series, are tied for 25th all time.
The next five drivers ahead of Keselowski and Jarrett are Fireball Roberts (33), Bobby Isaac (37), Tim Flock (39), Denny Hamlin (39), and Matt Kenseth (39).
