NASCAR returns to Kentucky Speedway for the Quaker State 400 tonight.

Brad Keselowski is the defending champion at the event, fresh off a win Friday night in the Nationwide race.

Jimmie Johnson currently holds a 25-point lead on Carl Edwards in the Chase.  Clint Bowyer is third, followed by Kevin Harvick and Matt Kenseth.  Keselowski is ninth in the standings.

Hear the action tonight on your home for NASCAR, KJ Country 102.3.  Coverage will begin at 5:30pm.

After being declared the winner of Friday night's Feed the Children 300 NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Kentucky Speedway, 30 laps short of the scheduled finish, Keselowski did donuts on the frontstretch, minus the usual smoke because of the wet, slippery asphalt.

The win, heard on KJ Country, was by no means a fluke, because as the race progressed, Keselowski's car identified itself as the clear class of the field.  He took the lead for good on Lap 156, seven laps before NASCAR called the final caution for rain.
