DARLINGTON, S.C.—Brad Keselowski has moved up the all-time wins list for the first time this year.

Keselowski came away as the winner in the Bojangles’ Southern 500 Sunday at Darlington Raceway, snapping a 29-race winless streak.

Keselowski, who led the final 22 laps, earned his first Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series win of 2018 and the 25th of his career. Keselowski is now tied with Jim Paschal and Joe Weatherly on the all-time wins list.

“It’s probably the biggest win of my career, especially with it being a weekend sweep at one of the toughest tracks on the circuit, and today was no different,” Keselowski said. “So I’m just really, really thankful, really, really proud, thankful of the team effort that it took to win this race.”

Keselowski was one of nine drivers to pull double-duty at Darlington; competing in both XFINITY Series and Cup Series races.

Team Penske teammate Joey Logano finished second-place, his highest finish since his win at Talladega Superspeedway.

“the one‑two is nice,” Logano said. “I was racing Larson there thinking, ‘man, it would be cool to be one‑two, but it would be really cool to be one instead of two.’

“But overall, really cool to see the speed in the Team Penske cars tonight. We ran top five all night long, so I’m proud of that.”

Kyle Larson, who led the most laps and won the first two stages, finished third.

Rounding out the top five were Kevin Harvick and Chase Elliott.

Denny Hamlin, the pole sitter and defending race winner, finished 10th.

The next Cup Series race is Sunday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the last race of the regular season in the Cup Series.
