SPARTA, Ky. — Brad Keselowski raced to his third win of the year, grabbing the lead with 55 laps remaining and holding off all challengers Saturday night in the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Kentucky Speedway.

The 28-year-old picked up his seventh win in his five years on the circuit. He won earlier this year at Bristol and Talladega.

Kasey Kahne rode a late surge to second place, 4.399 seconds back of Keselowski. Denny Hamlin was third, Dale Earnhardt Jr. fourth and Jeff Gordon fifth.

A year after severe traffic congestion resulted in thousands of angry fans, there were few glitches after the track and government officials widened ramps and roads and added 20,000 parking spaces.
