Brad Keselowski made his third consecutive win Sunday at the opening playoff race in Las Vegas Motor Speedway, but a fourth straight win seems unlikely as NASCAR heads to Richmond’s short track for Saturday night’s Federated Auto Parts 400.
Richmond is a flat, 3/4-mile track that’s quite similar to New Hampshire’s and Phoenix’s flat tracks. Drivers who’ve had success at these tracks have been contenders in Richmond.
Phoenix and New Hampshire was seen by NASCAR after each earlier in the season. From the summer, Kevin Harvick took the checkers, but Kyle Busch led the most laps. Harvick also won 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 fit for its short-track racing on Saturday.
