Brad Keselowski comments on the “Big One”


BRAD KESELOWSKI, No. 2 Discount Tire Ford Mustang –

"It was just one of those racing deals. We had a really good Discount Tire Ford. My team did an incredible job today to put ourselves in position to lead a lot of laps and run up front. I am proud of the way we started with some fast race cars. Unfortunately, it didn’t come together there at the end. I probably made a little bit of a bad move not blocking the 6 and 95. I didn’t know the 95 was that darn fast. He pushed the 6 like a rocket and I didn’t think they would come with that big of a run and when they did, I didn’t cover it. I put myself into a position where when they did wreck, I couldn’t make it through."

WAS THERE A SENSE THAT YOU HAD TO RACE LIKE THAT TO CREATE MOMENTUM?

"Yeah, you definitely have to push each other and bump the heck out of each other. That is how this racing is."

COULD YOU FEEL THE INTENSITY PICK UP AS THE LAPS WERE WINDING DOWN?

"I feel like it was pretty intense for the last fuel stint. It was good racing."
