NASCAR star Brad Keselowski held off odds-on favorite and hometown hero Kyle Bush to win Saturday’s Boyd Gaming 300 NASCAR Nationwide Series at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Keselowski, who turned 30 on Feb. 12, hosted a meet-and-greet with fans at the D Las Vegas downtown Thursday night ahead of his back-to-back races.
He also won today’s Kobalt 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, holding off Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the final lap.
Since I don’t know the difference between the Nationwide Series and the Sprint Cup Series (I work in arts and entertainment!), I’ll leave it to NASCAR writers to provide the race details.
Thanks to contributing photographer Tom Donoghue for his photo gallery of the Boyd Gaming 300 and champion Keselowski.
