CONCORD, N.C.  – Brad Keselowski capitalized on a two-tire stop that catapulted him into the lead, winning the second segment of the Sprint All-Star Race.

The Team Penske driver was fourth after the first of five segments but left the pits in first after taking two tires (along with Dale Earnhardt Jr.). After leading the first eight laps, Keselowski’s No. 2 Ford faced a challenge from the No. 41 Chevrolet of Kurt Busch, who led the 33rd lap. But Keselowski regained first and led the final 16 laps.

Busch finished second, followed by Jeff Gordon, Joey Logano and Kasey Kahne.

Kahne won the first segment, passing Denny Hamlin on the 15th lap. Hamlin started on the pole for the event and led the first 14 laps.
