RICHMOND, Va.—On Lap 18 of last Sunday’s Food City 500 in Support of Steve Byrnes at Bristol Motor Speedway, Brad Keselowski spun exiting Turn 4 and collected Team Penske teammate Joey Logano.
Given that both cars were wrecked early on and lost double-digit laps during repairs, the competition debriefing at the Penske shop following the race was probably a short one, right?
How about non-existent?
“We didn’t have one, because there was nothing to talk about,” Logano said on Friday at Richmond International Raceway. “I had a meeting with my team and we went over what went on through the weekend, but we didn’t talk much as a team because there wasn’t as much to go over after such a short run.
“Everything is fine. Brad and I talked about it. It is not like … he obviously didn’t mean to do it. It hurt both our days, not just mine. It was a tough day, but we were able to take something out of the weekend. I think the damage repair the team did was really good, and we showed we had a really fast car afterwards. That makes it more frustrating when you can go run with these guys but you don’t want to be that guy racing with them when you are 50 laps down.
“You don’t want to make enemies out there.”
