KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Brad Keselowski pushed Joey Logano past Kyle Busch on a restart with two laps to go, giving Logano his second consecutive Nationwide Series win at Kansas Speedway.

Logano passed Busch on a previous restart with eight laps to go and chose the outside lane, leaving Busch on the inside. Keselowski restarted fourth and shoved Logano down the frontstretch, which allowed Logano to clear Busch going into turn one. Last year, Logano also passed Busch on a late race restart and held on to the win.

Busch was able to get to Logano's back bumper as the two entered turn four on the final lap but pushed up the track and had to get out of the gas, which let Keselowski sneak by at the line for second.

Keselowski said after the race that he owed Logano one after Logano pushed him to the win at Talladega in the spring. And of course, it didn't hurt that Keselowski thinks that the guy who was on the inside of the front row is a three letter synonym for rear end.

Despite leading the most laps, Busch had to work to get back to the front of the field. While leading on lap 91, Busch spun off of turn four -- calamity corner during the race and Saturday's Sprint Cup practice sessions -- but didn't hit anything.
