In a slightly disappointing day for my boy Jeff Gordon, a positive light shined down upon us as Brad Keselowski took the lead from Jimmie Johnson and eventually took the checkered flag in Chicago at Chicagoland Speedway.

Keselowski took the points lead as well, also beating out Jimmie Johnson, even though he led the most laps and still finished second.

Gordon assumed the last position in the Chase, much to the chagrin of the race fans in my house.

The NASCAR tour will continue next week as the drivers will battle on the blacktop of New Hampshire.
