Brad Keselowski is searching for his fourth win of the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series season and if Stage 2 of Saturday’s Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond Raceway is any indication, that fourth win may come later Saturday night as he passed Austin Dillon with 18 laps left in Stage 2 to take the Stage Win.
This marks Keselowski’s seventh Stage Win of 2020.
Dillon, a surprise legit contender in the Playoffs all of a sudden, has racked up 18 stage points by virtue of finishing second in Stages 1 and 2 Saturday night.
Martin Truex Jr., who has won the last two NASCAR Cup Series races at Richmond, finished the Stage in third.
Joey Logano and Chase Elliott rounded out the top-five.
Kyle Busch continues to battle back from starting the race from the rear of the field and finished sixth in Stage 2.
Kurt Busch, Aric Almirola, Matt Kenseth and Kevin Harvick capped off the top-10 in the Stage.
Harvick made an incredible comeback charge to finish 10th as he had a commitment line violation while performing a green flag pit stop. He lost a lap in the process, but ended up un-lapping himself and getting a Stage Point.
Harvick is locked into the Round of 12 of the Playoffs by virtue of his win at Darlington last week.
Stage and Playoff Points Awarded in Stage 2:
|Finish||Driver||Stage Points||Playoff Points|
|3||Martin Truex Jr.||8||0|
