Bristol, TN (SportsNetwork.com) -
Brad Keselowski claimed his first victory in the Camping World Truck Series after holding off Darrell Wallace Jr. in the closing laps of Thursday's UNOH 200 at Bristol Motor Speedway.
This 200-lap race was scheduled for Wednesday night but persistent rain forced postponement until the following day.
Keselowski, the driver/owner of the No. 19 Ford and the 2012 Sprint Cup Series champion, passed Kyle Busch, the pole sitter, for the lead on lap 125 and then ran in front for the remaining 76 laps around this 0.533-mile, high-banked short track.

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) -
While Tony Stewart continues to grieve in an undisclosed location following the death of Kevin Ward Jr., many of his fellow competitors in NASCAR remain supportive of Stewart and are defending his role in the tragic accident.
Stewart, a three-time champion in NASCAR's premier series, struck and killed Ward during a sprint car race on Aug. 9 at Canandaigua (N.Y.) Motorsports Park. Stewart has missed the previous two Sprint Cup Series races. Regan Smith substituted for him this past week at Watkins Glen International, and Jeff Burton filled in over the weekend at Michigan International Speedway.
