It is also Keselowski's second successive win following last week's triumph at Darlington, while Team Penske reigned supreme in the Brickyard 400 for the first time. "To bring it home this way, after messing up previous year, is just incredible", Keselowski said. But when Landon Cassill and Jeffrey Earnhardt crashed hard with just a handful of laps to go, the ensuing caution flag tightened the field and gave Keselowski the chance he needed. That tightened the field and allowed Keselowski, who had the benefit of fresher tires, to close in. The Joe Gibbs Racing driver, in the No. 18 Toyota, finished eighth.

Fourteen drivers went into the race knowing they would compete for this year's title and now they know how they stack up.

Tyler Reddick finished second, Ryan Blaney was third and Chase Elliott fourth.

Martin Truex Jr. crashed out of the race minutes before the end of the stage. If it works the way race organizers and series officials hope, it could be used in the future Brickyard 400s.

Race fans finally got to see cars hit the track Monday afternoon after weekend storms caused the Brickyard 400 to be postponed Sunday. The Xfinity Series race started with temperatures in the high 50s. No drivers got to practice or qualify before the racing doubleheader began Monday, and the crowd remained sparse for the rare weekday race.

The race was slowed by a record seven caution flags, one caused by a competition yellow after 10 laps and the two caution periods for the stages.

A resurgent Matt Kenseth was the Stage 2 victor and raced among the leaders for most of the day before a pit road miscue on his final stop relegated him to a 12th place finish.

Clint Bowyer led three times for 37 laps and was the victor of the first stage but despite having a fast vehicle, got caught by the late caution flag and ended the day in fifth place.
