Keselowski Comes From Third To Win Carfax 250
As Brian Vickers and Kyle Busch battled for the lead of the Carfax 250 at Michigan International Speedway, Brad Keselowski snuck by both on the outside and won the race at his home track.
Busch and Vickers still argued after the race. After the race, Busch drove into Vickers on pit road. Busch climbed out of the car and walked to Vickers’ car. He said a few words into Vickers’ window. When Vickers got out of the car, the two were separated by team members and officials. Busch said:
It’s so frustrating that you can’t have a guy race you clean. … If he would have ran his own line up at the top of the track, and I had run my own line down at the bottom of the track, it could have been us two. But, unfortunately, you race with idiots, and I guess you’ll have that sometimes.
Oh, man, I am so sorry — I forgot it was the Kyle Busch show. Hell, I thought we were racing for a win. … I thought it was my job to hold him off. Apparently not. He came over to the car after we came in and knocked the fender in, which was unnecessary, and then started crying like a little baby.
Top 5: Keselowski, Vickers, Kyle Busch, David Ragan, and Kevin Harvick.
Ryan Newman, Justin Allgaier, Greg Biffle, Jeff Burton, and Paul Menard rounded out the top 10.
Notables: Jason Leffler (11th), Reed Sorenson (12th), David Reutimann (14th), Steve Wallace (15th), Denny Hamlin (32nd), and Carl Edwards (40th).
Edwards was involved in a crash on lap 3. He was racing three wide with Brad Coleman and Trevor Bayne. Bayne and Edwards made contact. Edwards got in the marbles, then tried to regain control. He made contact with Bayne again, which sent him into the outside wall. His day was over.
