NASCAR will have a new champion this year as the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship will go on without Brad Keselowski.

The reigning champion failed to make the 12-driver Chase on Saturday night at Richmond International Raceway, where an ill-timed caution contributed to his 17th-place finish.

The race was won by Carl Edwards, who darted past Paul Menard on a restart with three laps remaining. Kurt Busch finished second to make Furniture Row Racing the first single-car organization to make the Chase.

Ryan Newman was third, but it wasn't enough to make the Chase. He had it in hand after passing Edwards for the lead with 10 laps to go. Then Clint Bowyer spun to bring out a caution, most of the field pitted, and Newman came off pit road in fifth for the last restart.

Kasey Kahne and Martin Truex claimed the two wild-card berths.
