The 2013 Bank of America 500 was a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stock car race held on October 12, 2013, at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina. Contested over 334 laps on the 1.5-mile (2.4 km) asphalt quad-oval, it was the thirty-first race of the 2013 Sprint Cup Series season, as well as the fifth race in the ten-race Chase for the Sprint Cup, which ends the season. Brad Keselowski won the race, his first of the season, while Kasey Kahne finished second and Matt Kenseth finished third. This was the first time since October 2011 that a Chase race was "spoiled" by a non-Chase driver.
