QUOTE WORTHY
Keselowski on racing at Kansas:
“Kansas is a really fast race track and it carries so much speed with how spread out the racing can be there. We’re thrilled to be running the King’s Hawaiian car for the first time, a brand we’re excited to partner with moving forward and one that will make for some fun content. Our goal is to get back on track and keep finding speed as we head into the weekend.”

Last Time Out

Keselowski blew a tire last Sunday at Darlington and was knocked out of the race early, finishing 34th.
