Brad Keselowski, the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion, finally has picked up his first career win in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series after taking the checkered flag in the UNOH 200 at Bristol Motor Speedway on Thursday morning. It was Keselowski's 62nd career Truck Series start.

He was able to hold off Darrell Wallace Jr in the final laps to bring his own Brad Keselowski Racing No. 19 Ford to victory lane after leading 119 of the 200 laps. In doing so he became the 25th driver to win in all three of NASCAR's national series.

"It means a lot as a driver, I don't want to understate that," Keselowski said in victory lane. "My family has been a part of this series since the inception and I feel like I have too whether it was just as a kid watching or now as a team owner and driver."

Brad joins his father Bob as a winner in the Truck Series. Bob Keselowski went to victory lane at Richmond back in 1997. Brad made his Truck Series debut back in 2004. Keselowski also beat Kyle Busch head-to-head for the win which was a big deal since Busch had picked up 12 wins in the 24 previous head-to-head races.

It came down to a final restart with just five laps to go but Tommy Barrett Jr held off Bobby Santos and pole sitter Justin Bonsignore to win the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour's Bush's Beans 150 at Bristol Motor Speedway Wednesday evening. It's Barrett's first career NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour victory in just his 12th start. The 19-year-old rookie grabbed the lead from Santos on lap 139 just before the final caution flew and never looked back.

Bobby Santos finished in the second spot with Ron Silk coming home third. Doug Coby finished in the fourth position and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series regular Ryan Newman finished in the the fifth spot. Newman started 11th in the race and worked his way up to fifth but was never really a factor to win the race. Santos had a strong car all night and led the most laps with 70. Bonsignore led 36 laps but finished sixth after falling back late.

Finishing seventh was Eric Goodale with rookie Timmy Solomito eighth, Patrick Emerling ninth, and Ryan Preece tenth. Rookie Jimmy Zacharias finished 11th and Ron Yuhas Jr came home 12th.
