Brad Keselowski Directs the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series into the second race of the playoffs at Richmond Raceway on Sunday for the Federated Auto Parts 400.

Keselowski, obviously pulling inspiration from other multi-race winners this season, won his third race in a row through the first event of the postseason, pulling him ahead on the leaderboard for now.

The results through one week pose some interesting questions and lessons, the bigger of the latter being easy enough–regular-season wins don’t necessarily equate to postseason success. Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch might have 13 combined checkered flags, but it is Keselowski in charge of the postseason up to now.

Saturday presents another chance for those with no playoff win so far, while the back end of the leaderboard has to begin thinking about the looming cut afternoon.
