Keselowski wins 600 as late pit stop costs Elliott

NASCAR

Brad Keselowski held off Jimmy Johnson, Martin Truex Jr., Chase Elliott and Alex Bowman, among others, to win the weather-delayed Coca-Cola 600 in overtime Sunday night in Concord, North Carolina.

In another NASCAR race held without fans, this one at the Charlotte Motor Speedway, Keselowski won the circuit’s longest event of the season.

It didn’t go so well for Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin, who had to return to pit road to have the weight put back into his Toyota after a piece of tungsten flew off of Hamlin’s car during the pace laps.

Even though spectators weren’t allowed inside, there were still some fans listening to the roar of engines from an independently owned motorhome campground a few hundred yards from the track.

The win was Keselowski’s first of the season and 31st of his career.
