WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (AP) - Brad Keselowski has won the NASCAR Nationwide Zippo 200 at Watkins Glen International.

It was the fourth straight win over five months in the series for Keselowski, who beat Penske Racing teammate Sam Hornish Jr. for his first victory at The Glen.

Hornish started from the pole and the Penske pair dominated the race, running 1-2 the final 16 laps with teammate Joey Logano in third until Logano ran out of gas at the end.

Brian Vickers was third, followed by Regan Smith and Elliott Sadler.

Points leader Austin Dillon finished 11th and saw his lead shrink to three points over Hornish.

Kyle Busch, seeking his ninth win in 16 starts this season in the second-tier series, lost control of his No. 54 Toyota entering the first turn of the 82-lap race and was slammed hard by Mike Wallace. Busch finished the race in 24th five laps down.
