Brad Keselowski made his third consecutive win Sunday in the opening playoff race at 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’s quite similar to New Hampshire’s and Phoenix’s flat tracks. Drivers who have had success at these monitors have been contenders at Richmond.
NASCAR seen Phoenix and New Hampshire once each sooner in the season. From the summer, 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 season, but he’s finished 11th or better in the past six races in Richmond. A top-10 seems likely for the No. 2 team, but there are drivers more fit for its short-track racing on Saturday.
