Keselowski matures on track to get into title race

It would have been easy for Brad Keselowski to wreck Jimmie Johnson at the end of last week's race at Texas Motor Speedway.

Keselowski would have won the race, surged ahead of Johnson in their championship battle and maybe even put enough separation on him to win his first career Sprint Cup title.

But Keselowski said he wouldn't have felt good about winning that way. So he raced Johnson hard -- but clean -- on the final restart at Texas and wound up finishing second.

Johnson went on to his second consecutive victory, and took a seven-point lead over Keselowski into Sunday's race at Phoenix.

So why didn't Keselowski go for broke?  Because he's not the same driver he was three years ago.
