NASCAR Point Standings: Brad Keselowski takes top spot at Bristol

Jared Wickerham

Brad Keselowski moved to the top of the Sprint Cup Series standings on Sunday with his third-place finish at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Keselowski leads Dale Earnhardt Jr. by nine points and the duo are the only two drivers to begin the season with four-straight top-10s.

Jimmie Johnson was looking to begin the season with the same accomplishment but crashed out of contention in the late stages of the race. He drops from first to third with Clint Bowyer and Greg Biffle completing the top-5.

Kasey Kahne won Sunday's event and jumped from 14th to seventh in the updated rundown.
