QUOTE WORTHY
Keselowski on racing at Bristol:
“This will be yet another interesting weekend with still a lot of unknowns as to how the track will be, how these Next Gen cars will manage, and how teams react to all those factors. Last year was all over the place with how the weather affected our weekend, so hoping for a good weekend in that area. We’re going to give it our best shot, and glad to have Solomon Plumbing on the car with us for their first race.”

Last Time Out

Keselowski finished 17th last Saturday night at Martinsville in a race dominated by green-flag conditions.

 

On the Car

Solomon Plumbing makes its debut with RFK Racing this weekend on the Bristol Dirt as the primary for Keselowski’s No. 6 Ford. The Michigan-based company specializes in plumbing and fire services for new development, construction and complete remodeling.
