Brad Keselowski earned his third successive win Sunday at the opening playoff race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, but a fourth consecutive 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 is quite similar to New Hampshire’s and Phoenix’s apartment tracks. Drivers who have had success at those monitors have been contenders at Richmond.
Phoenix and New Hampshire was visited by NASCAR after each sooner. 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 in Phoenix and New Hampshire this season, but he’s finished 11th or better in the last six races in 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.
