FORT WORTH, Texas -- Brad Keselowski led 106 of 200 laps at Texas to win for the sixth time in his last eight Nationwide Series starts, while Austin Dillon and Sam Hornish Jr. got closer Saturday in the battle for the season title.

With the win in the No. 22 Ford, Keselowski put Roger Penske back in the lead for owner points. Keselowski finished nearly a second ahead of Denny Hamilin.

Hornish recovered from being a lap down early in the race to finish third. That was two spots ahead of Dillon, whose points lead was cut from eight to six with two races to go.

Hornish and Dillon each led only two laps on the high-banked 1 1/2-mile track, with Sprint Cup points leader Matt Kenseth finishing third between them.
