GLADEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Brad Keselowski raced to his third NASCAR Nationwide Series victory of the year and ninth overall, easily holding off rival Carl Edwards on Saturday night at Nashville Superspeedway.

Keselowski, the series points leader, led 97 of 225 laps in his Penske Dodge and finished 1.67 seconds ahead of Edwards. Paul Menard was third, giving Sprint Cup drivers the top three spots.

Keselowski, Edwards, Menard and Michael McDowell also will race Sunday at Pocono in the Sprint Cup event. McDowell exited early after finishing 30th.

Keselowski, also the 2008 Nashville winner, increased his points lead from one to 196 over second-place Kyle Busch - the defending series champion who skipped the Nashville race and isn't running for the season title.
