3: The number of top-five finishes posted by Brad Keselowski through the first three NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races of the 2013 season. The defending Cup champion is the only driver in the series with three top fives. Jimmie Johnson, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Carl Edwards are the only other drivers with as many as two top fives through three races. Johnson, however, leads Cup standings by five points over Keselowski by virtue of a win and a second place in the first two races to go with a sixth at Las Vegas. Keselowski ran fourth at Daytona, fourth at Phoenix and third at Vegas. He also has won two of the last three races at this week’s venue: Bristol.
