NASCAR: Brad Keselowski holds off Ricky Stenhouse and Carl Edwards to win the Ford 300 at Homestead, what a way to finish out 2011.

Damn, that was one hell of a finish to the 2011 NASCAR Nationwide Series with Brad Keselowski holding off a hard charging and sliding Ricky Stenhouse and Carl Edwards to win one wild Ford 300 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

I really thought that Carl Edwards was going to move Brad Keselowski out of the way at one point with 2 laps to go. But out of nowhere, comes Ricky Stenhouse Jr. (the new 2011 NASCAR Nationwide Series Drivers Championship) to pass Edwards and challenge Keselowski for the victory.

And of course with Carl Edwards finishing 2nd, congrats to the #60 Roush-Fenway Racing Ford on winning the 2011 NASCAR Nationwide Series Owners Championship. Well I have to say that that is cool because I am a fan of Jack Roush (I’ve meant Jack Roush up here in Massachusetts back in 2009 at a local car show) and Roush-Fenway Racing.

Just one thing, ESPN needs to cover the race, not just the championship points standings during a race. ESPN could have just put a points chart under the ticker on screen.
