Brad Keselowski made his third successive win Sunday at the opening playoff race in Las Vegas Motor Speedway, but a fourth straight win appears unlikely as NASCAR heads to Richmond’s short track for Saturday night’s Federated Auto Parts 400.
Richmond is a level, 3/4-mile track that is most like New Hampshire’s and Phoenix’s apartment monitors. Drivers who’ve had success at those monitors have been contenders at Richmond.
NASCAR and Phoenix and New Hampshire visited once each sooner. From the desert, Kevin Harvick took the checkers, but Kyle Busch led the most laps. Harvick also won at New Hampshire, but it was Kurt Busch leading the most laps.

Keselowski finished 15th and 32nd at Phoenix and New Hampshire this year, but he has finished 11th or better in the past six races at Richmond. A top-10 appears likely for the No. 2 team, but you will find drivers more healthy for its short-track racing on Saturday.
