Brad Keselowski becomes the sixth multi-race winner during the 2014 Sprint Cup season . He joins Jimmie Johnson, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kevin Harvick, Joey Logano and Carl Edwards. However, the victory was still not enough to boost Keselowski’s standing in the latest edition of NASCAR Power Rankings at The Wife Hates Sports.
The biggest challenge for Keselowski at the Quaker State 400 over the weekend actually came during the post-race celebration. Following a dominant victory where he led 199 of the 267 laps at Kentucky Motor Speedway, Keselowski cut his hand on a broken champagne bottle, and would require stitches.
Jeff Gordon, last week’s ratings leader and current Sprint Cup points leader, remains in first place following a sixth place finish at Kentucky.
Overall, the top five from last week – Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Brad Keselowski and Kevin Harvick – remains unchanged following the Kentucky race, in which none of the five drivers finished outside of the top ten.
Next up is the Coke Zero 400, which will take place at the Daytona International Speedway.
