Who won the NASCAR race yesterday? Full results for Sunday's Supermarket Heroes 500 at Bristol 1

Another NASCAR Cup Series race, another late lead change and another exciting finish.

Sunday’s drama reached a crescendo with three laps to go at Bristol Motor Speedway in the Supermarket Heroes 500. As in last weekend’s Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Chase Elliott and Brad Keselowski were two of the principals.

Elliott, who won the race’s first two stages Sunday, was battling Joey Logano for the lead with three laps to go but then got loose as he tried to pass, sliding into Logano and sending both cars into the outer wall. Keselowski, stalking right behind, drove off for his second win in as many weekends as NASCAR kept the race under green.

“We kind of got a Christmas present here in Bristol,” Keselowski told reporters after the race. “We’ll take it.”

Logano wanted an explanation from Elliott afterward, and the two had a conversation on pit road. Logano later told FS1 he was upset Elliott didn’t immediately apologize for wrecking him.

Who won the Supermarket Heroes 500?

Brad Keslowski earned his second victory of the NASCAR Cup Series season, both coming after the series returned from its COVID-19 hiatus. He drove away after the leaders, Chase Elliott and Joey Logano, wrecked with three laps remaining. He defeated Clint Bowyer by 0.471 seconds.

“It was just such a turn of events it felt like I was playing poker in Vegas,” Keselowski told reporters.

Keselowski began the race on the pole and led four times for 115 of the 500 laps.
