Brad Keselowski Texas Post-Race Report
Brad Keselowski (@Keselowski), driver of the No. 19 Draw-Tite Ford F-150, made his fifth start this season in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) during Friday night's WinStar World Casino 350K after qualifying in the 13th position at Texas Motor Speedway earlier in the day.
On lap 25, Keselowski spun in the frontstretch and did a great job of not damaging his Truck, while bringing out the first caution of the night. Crew chief, Chad Kendrick brought the Draw-Tite machine on to pit road for repair, four tires and fuel. Keselowski was a lap down once he entered back onto the track for the restart on lap 28 in the 26th position.
When the second caution came out on lap 58, Keselowski was still one lap down as he entered the pits. Kendrick made a four tire change, a track bar adjustment and loaded the Ford F-150 up with fuel, restarting Keselowski in the 23rd position, one lap down, when the field went back to green on lap 63.
The final caution of the night came out on lap 99, for Kyle Busch's engine blowing up on the frontstretch. Keselsowki made his final pit stop of the night for fuel, four tires and another track bar adjustment, restarting in the 22nd position and one lap down.
Keselowski ended up finishing a disappointing 21st after having trouble getting his fast Ford F-150 back on the lead lap.
The No. 19 BKR team now sits fifth in the NCWTS owner points standings, 57 points back from first.
"We had a rough night out there. We went a lap down and just never seemed to find the ability to make it up. I'm proud of my Draw-Tite team for the effort they gave each and every pit stop. We will have a great shot at Phoenix next weekend with Draw-Tite back on board the No. 19 BKR Ford." - Brad Keselowski
