Brad Keselowski said in the pre-race that the best way to win the Chase for the Sprint Cup was to win races, and that is exactly what the Miller Lite team did at the AAA 400 at the Monster Mile.

Sunday's race really came down to fuel mileage for quite a few of the teams.  Keselowski was able to conserve enough to get the victory, with Jimmie Johnson having to give up a few positions on the last laps to finish fourth.  That puts Brad Keselowski at the top of the Chase point standings, and 5 points ahead of Jimmie Johnson.  This was Brad's second win in the chase for the cup, his first win at Dover International Speedway, and the ninth of his career.

Up next it is race 30 of 36 with the "Good Sam 500" at Talledaga Superspeedway, the last of the four restrictor plate races this year.  Television coverage will be on ESPN beginning at 12 noon central time... (interesting fact - in the first three plate races this year, Fords led 56% of all laps.)

Here are the point standings in the Chase for the Sprint Cup...
