RICHMOND, Va. - Penske Racing's Brad Keselowski passed three cars in two laps to win the Bubba Burger 250 NASCAR Nationwide Series race Friday night at Richmond International Raceway.

Keselowski dominated the race but gave up the lead when Paul Menard brought out a caution with six laps remaining. Three drivers, Kyle Busch, Justin Allgaier and Jamie McMurray, stayed on the track. Keselowski restarted fourth on a green-white-checkered finish but quickly whipped into second and fought with Greg Biffle on the last lap.

Biffle finished second, with McMurray third, Busch fourth and Carl Edwards fifth. Edwards was originally penalized for jumping the restart, but NASCAR later rescinded the penalty, ruling that Edwards gave his positions back.

Joey Logano was sixth, with Kevin Harvick seventh, Reed Sorenson eighth, Brendan Gaughan ninth and Matt Kenseth 10th.
