HOMESTEAD, Fla. — NASCAR Sprint Cup points leader Brad Keselowski will have clear racetrack in front of him at the start Sunday’s Ford 400. Keselowski qualified third Friday, but a crash involving polesitter Joey Logano during Saturday’s first practice session forced Logano to a backup car meaning he will be forced to start from the rear Sunday. The move allows Keselowski to move up into the front row.

Logano was just behind Greg Biffle exiting turn 4 when Biffle appeared to move down and touch Logano’s Toyota. Biffle was forced into the outside wall. The ensuing melee collected Denny Hamlin.

“I don’t think that he (Hamlin) thought we were three-wide,” Biffle said. “He thought we were two-wide.  Ultimately, we may not have been three-wide at that particular time, but my spotter told me to leave the 20 room and I left the 20 room.  Whether he was there or not, maybe the 20 said, ‘I’ve had enough.  You’re three-wide, this is practice.’  I don’t know.” MORE>>>
