Talladega, Ala.–The Sprint Cup Series race at Talladega Superspeedway was captured by Brad Keselowski on Sunday, May 6, 2012, according to reports by several international news sites.

Reports say that with the help from Kyle Busch, Keselowski was able to win the race over pole leader, Matt Kenseth. Getting a big push from Busch enabled Keselowski to steal the race from Kenseth.

Kenseth was the leader on the green-white-checkered flag restart and lined up on the outside line so that teammate Greg Biffle could push him to the finish. But he got too far away from the pack, making it easy for Keselowski and Busch to catch him.

Busch gave Keselowski a huge shove to get around Kenseth, and then Keselowski put enough separation on Busch to hold on for the win.

The win by Keselowski gave Penske Racing its second victory this season in NASCAR.

It was Busch‘s second place finish in two days.
