Reigning NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski saw his day end early and badly at Kentucky Speedway Sunday.
On lap 48 of the rain delayed Quaker State 400, Keselowski’s Ford was tapped by the Chevy driven by Kurt Busch just past the start-finish line. Keselowski was sent sliding into turn one where he was hit hard by the Ford of Greg Biffle. The crash involved a total of seven cars and brought out a red flag for 18 minutes.
“It is a wreck. Wrecks happen,” Keselowski said. “ It takes a chain of events to get there. We had the bottom lane on two or three restarts in a row and got shuffled back a little bit. We were trying to get patient because it looked like we will get the whole race in before rain and there is no reason to drive like an animal. Apparently I am the only one that got that memo. It is one of those deals.”MORE>>>
