On Monday, Keselowski’s wife, Paige, posted a video on social media showing their daughter taking the American flag that he held into school with her.

“No one happier than this girl,” Paige Keselowski wrote on X. “She wanted to take the race winning flag to school today so her class could use it for the pledge of allegiance.”

Buescher and Reddick finished 30th and 32nd respectively.

“What a heck of a day,” Keselowski said, via NASCAR.com. “It’s Darlington, so whether it’s your first win, your last win, this is a really special track. The history of NASCAR, it’s as tough as it gets, and that battle at the end with my teammate and Tyler Reddick, we just laid it all out on the line, it was freaking awesome.”

It seemed to only be a matter of time before Keselowski got back to Victory Lane. After finishing 33rd at Daytona and Atlanta earlier in the year, he put together four top five finishes. He was 11th last week at Kansas and eighth at Richmond back in March.
