To say Brad Keselowski had and up and down day Sunday is putting it mildly. Keselowski started the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Windows 10 40 in ninth and was holding his own in the early going.  It all began to unravel as the race was nearing the halfway point.

During a round of green flag stops that started on lap 52, Keselowski brought his No. 2 Penske Racing Ford in for service.  The former champion came in to hot and slid through his pit box. As he did so he hit the front tire carrier Jeremy Ogles and the jackman Braxton Brannon. The front tire carrier slid across the hood and to the ground as the jackman and the 75-pound jack, flew into the air.  The jack landed on the Braxton but both he and the Ogles were able to complete the stop.

“I’m sorry about that guys. Everybody OK?” Keselowski asked via radio after leaving pit road. MORE>>>
