NASCAR Nationwide Series
BRAD KESELOWSKI (No. 22 Ruby Tuesday Dodge Challenger R/T) Finished 27th “What a bum deal. Some guys just go too impatient on a restart and we got collected. Guys know that it’s ‘go time’ and just overdrive the race track. I got hit from the side and then just got run over. I checked up, but the guy behind me couldn’t slow down fast enough and ran over us. I thought I had it saved when I kept it off the wall, but then I get hit again. We tried to fix it under yellow, but there was just too much damage. We had to take it behind the wall, lost a ton of laps, made it back out on the track, but there was just too much damage inside the front-end.
“A tough deal for this Ruby Tuesday Dodge Challenger. Our car was really good in the first-third of the corners, but not great off. I told Todd (Gordon, crew chief) that I thought our car was a top-three car through the one-third (of the corner), but 20th off. The guys worked hard all night. It’s a tough deal for them. I love this track and really wanted to get a win here. Our finish certainly doesn’t represent how strong our car was tonight.”
