Watch: Brad Keselowski Breaks 110-Race Winless Streak to Give Ford 1st 2024 NASCAR Cup Series Win

Brad Keselowski gave Ford their first win of the 2024 NASCAR Cup Series season at Darlington Raceway in Sunday’s Goodyear 400.

The first 12 races of the 2024 NASCAR Cup Series season had been won by Chevrolet (7 wins) and Toyota (5 wins). Many people had been noting that the Fords just didn’t deem to have the speed to start the season.

In the past few races that seemed to be changing. While the Fords had not won a race yet, they were there contending for the win at the end of the races.

Tyler Reddick had the dominant car leading a race-high 174 laps. Second in laps led was Brad Keselowski at just 37 laps as the leader. Kyle Larson was the winner of stage one of the race with Tyler Reddick claiming the win in stage two.

Late in the race Tyler Reddick and Brad Keselowski were battling for the lead. That allowed Chris Buescher to pass both of them at the same time to gain control of the race. Tyler was able to race up and challenge for the lead with 10 laps remaining. The two cars got together causing both to come together. The result was flat tires for both cars ending their chance to win.

That incident allowed Brad Keselowski to regain the lead of the race. He held it through the final laps to claim his first win of 2024, second win at Darlington, 36th career win and break his 110-race winless streak.

Ty Gibbs claimed the runner-up finish with Josh Berry finishing in third-place. See the complete race results for the Goodyear 400 here.

The top two spots in the point standings remain unchanged with Kyle Larson as the leader and Martin Truex Jr. in second-place. However, Denny Hamlin moves up to take over third this week. See the complete NASCAR Cup Series point standings here.

This coming weekend the NASCAR Cup Series drivers will not be racing for points or a spot in the playoffs. It is all about bragging rights and a million-dollar payday! It’s the NASCAR All-Star Race at North Wilkesboro Speedway this Sunday, May 19th!
