Don’t expect Kurt Busch to be sending Brad Keselowski a Christmas card this year. The NASCAR Sprint Cup champions both memorable races during the STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway Sunday. Busch has happy memories after winning his first Sprint Cup race since 2011 and since joining Stewart-Haas Racing.
Keselowski however had a race he will probably want to forget.
The trouble started during the second caution period on lap 40. In the pits as he was leaving his stall, Keselowski was forced to move out towards the outside wall to avoid the Chevy of Kasey Kahne who was coming into a pit stall in front of him. As Keselowski moved out though, he collided with the Chevy of Busch who was making his way back to the track. The ensuing damage on his Ford forced Keselowski into the garage. He would return 31 laps down. As his crew made repairs, Keselowski gave his view of the incident. MORE>>>
