TALLADEGA, Ala., May 6 (UPI) -- Brad Keselowski used a late push from teammate Kyle Busch Sunday to post a close win in a Sprint Cup Series race at Talladega Superspeedway.

The Penske Racing team members worked together during the two-lap overtime finish as they came up on the outside against then-leader Matt Kenseth.

After pulling ahead of Kenseth on the final lap, Keselowski squeezed by Busch and bested him by 0.3 seconds for his second title of the season and sixth Sprint Cup championship of his career.

Sunday's victory gave Dodge its first Talladega victory since August 1976.

Kenseth ended up in third after leading for 73 laps, while Kasey Kahne and Greg Biffle rounded out the Top 5.
