CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Team Penske will have Brad Keselowski race in this week’s Nationwide Series finale instead of Joey Logano.
The decision announced Monday comes one day after Logano advanced to NASCAR’s championship race while Keselowski was eliminated from the Chase for the Sprint Cup champion.READ MORE: Truck Loses Control, Slams Into Royse City Police Officer Michael Baley While Helping Stranded Motorist
Logano will race Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway for his first NASCAR championship. Keselowski will also be in the Sprint Cup finale, but is not one of the four drivers eligible to win the title.
So Penske swapped drivers for Saturday’s race, which will decide the owners’ championship. Team Penske has a 29-point lead over Joe Gibbs Racing in the Nationwide standings following Keselowski’s victory last weekend at Phoenix.READ MORE: Customs Officers Seize Narcotics At Texas-Mexico Border Worth $1.8M+ Hidden In Tires, Ice Chests
