QUOTE WORTHY
Keselowski on racing at Indy:
“We’ve got another great challenge on our hands this weekend with a configuration that is still very new to all of us. Despite our finish there last year, the road course program at RFK has seen significant improvements, which we’re very excited about, and are looking forward to unloading with a good weekend in the Castrol Ford.”

Last Time Out

Keselowski was officially credited with a 14th-place finish last Sunday after crossing the line 16th at Pocono.

On the Car

Keselowski and the No. 6 team will run the iconic Castrol colors this weekend in Indy, the first appearance of the season with the standard, green, red and white scheme. Castrol appeared on Keselowski’s machine earlier this season at Talladega in the all-white, Sustainability Ford, and Chris Buescher ran the grey GTX scheme later in Kansas.
