In a heart-pounding moment at Darlington Raceway, former NASCAR champion Brad Keselowski shattered a 110-race winless streak, leaving fans on the edge of their seats. The roar of engines, the smell of burnt rubber, and the taste of victory—it all converged as Keselowski crossed the finish line, etching his name in racing history.

According to a tweet from SiriusXM NASCAR Radio, Brad Keselowski snapped a grueling 110-race winless streak at the recent NASCAR Cup race at Darlington Raceway on Sunday, May 12th, 2024. This victory marked his first win since joining RFK Racing in 2021 and his 36th of his Cup career overall. This win is a significant accomplishment not just for Keselowski but for Ford as well, being their first win in any of the three national NASCAR series (Cup, Xfinity, and Trucks) this season.

The race at Darlington was a nail-biter, with Keselowski inheriting the lead with only eight laps remaining after a collision between his teammate Chris Buescher and Tyler Reddick. Keselowski then held off Ty Gibbs to secure the win.

This win is a big deal for Keselowski for several reasons. First, it breaks a long and frustrating winless streak. Second, it comes at a prestigious track like Darlington Raceway, which is known for its history and challenging racing conditions. Third, it’s the first win for Keselowski as co-owner of RFK Racing, making it extra special.

The Decisive Moment

Reddick attempted a daring move—a slidejob—to snatch the lead from Chris Buescher. But the gamble backfired. Buescher’s car met the wall, tires shredded, and Keselowski seized the opportunity. He surged past both Reddick and Buescher, his No. 6 RFK Racing Ford hungry for redemption.

The final laps were a blur. Keselowski’s car danced on the edge, tires gripping the asphalt. He held off a late charge from Ty Gibbs, the young prodigy eager to make his mark. But Keselowski’s experience prevailed. Victory Lane awaited—a place he hadn’t visited since Talladega in April 2021.

Ford’s Triumph

This win wasn’t just Keselowski’s; it was a triumph for Ford. As co-owner of RFK Racing, Keselowski carried the legacy of the No. 6 car. The last time it tasted victory at Darlington? 1993, when NASCAR Hall of Famer Mark Martin ruled the Southern 500. Now, Keselowski etched his chapter into that storied history.
