MEMPHIS, Oct. 24 (UPI) -- Brad Keselowski beat Kyle Busch on the final lap Saturday to win the Nationwide Kroger On Track For The Cure 250 auto race at Memphis.

Keselowski won the crash-filled race at the Memphis Motorsports Park by overcoming a bump with Busch near the finish line, beating him by less than 1 second.

The race featured 14 caution flags due to numerous crashes involving, among others, Eric McClure, Carl Edwards and Michael McDowell.

Jason Leffler, Mike Bliss and rookie Brendan Gaughan completed the Top 5 finishers.

"It felt like I was getting nudged all the way around," said Keselowski, who received a $25,000 bonus after his fourth victory this season and sixth in his Nationwide career. (But) that's short track racing."

"I should be happy with … a second-place finish," Busch said. "We didn't have the car. (I) lost a lot of money today."
