Nearly a week removed from a scuffle seen around the world, NASCAR driver Brad Keselowski spoke about what happened. Friday at Talladega Superspeedway, Keselowski spoke to the media for the first time since NASCAR issued penalties to him and fellow driver Tony Stewart.

Last Saturday night on the cool down lap right after the checkered flag, Denny Hamlin showed his displeasure with Keselowski by brake checking him, slowing his Toyota down, as Keselowski’s Ford neared turn 3. Keselowski tried to retaliate by attempting to spin Hamlin. He failed and nearly spun out himself. As the cars made their way down pit road Matt Kenseth, who was parked and removing his safety equipment inside his Toyota, was hit hard by Keselowski’s Ford.

The contact also involved Tony Stewart. Stewart then angrily backed his Chevy into Keselowski’s Ford. As Keselowski slowly drove his now front end damaged Ford to his hauler, he cut through a garage stall leaving tire marks from a burnout and scattering equipment, and people. MORE>>>
