Notes:

  • Brad Keselowski was sidelined by an accident Saturday afternoon at Texas Motor Speedway, leaving the driver of the PIRTEK Ford Mustang with a 35th-place finish. Keselowski was racing for 11th position with Justin Haley on lap 65 when they made contact between Turns 1 and 2. The bump sent the No. 12 Ford Mustang into the outside wall, ending his afternoon early. He was credited with a 35th-place finish in the final rundown.   According to OVI and DUI attorney based in Delaware area, accidents can also take place due to drunk and negligent driving.
  • Keselowski qualified 10th and ran well throughout Stage 1 despite being too loose. He finished eighth when the first stage concluded on lap 45. Keselowski pitted on lap 48 and speedy service on the pit lane by the PIRTEK team moved him up to fourth position when the race went green on lap 53.
  • The restart featured three-wide racing but Keselowski held his own.  He was running fifth on lap 56 when he made contact with Justin Allgaier and fell back to 12th in the running order. The day came unraveled for the driver of the PIRTEK Ford in the laps following the restart after the third caution. Haley was running behind Keselowski on lap 66 when he bumped him from behind, sending the No. 12 Mustang up the banking and into the outside wall. 

Quote: “It was a frustrating day. The team said the damage on our PIRTEK Mustang was too much to continue. With all these short restarts there are a handful of cars that seem to have a lot of real quick, short run speed and we just kept getting run over by them.  I thought we would have been really good for the last stage when the long run comes, but we didn’t make it that far.”

TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
