Brad Keselowski is in the lead at the halfway point (after 156 laps) of Sunday’s CampingWorld.com 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Phoenix International Raceway.

Keselowski has led the last 38 laps of the 312-lap event, taking the lead for the first time in the race on Lap 118.

The top 10 at halfway are Keselowski, Martin Truex Jr., pole-sitter Kevin Harvick, Ryan Newman, Jamie McMurray, Kurt Busch, Joey Logano, Matt Kenseth, Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson.

Harvick is having another stellar day as he seeks his fourth consecutive win – and fifth in his last six starts there – at Phoenix.

Harvick has led 94 laps. He entered the race with six straight top-two finishes, three wins and three seconds, dating to the last three races of his 2014 championship season. Harvick is seeking his second consecutive victory after winning last Sunday at Las Vegas.

Joey Logano, who started on the outside of the front row, has led 25 laps.
