Team Penske’s Brad Keselowski suggests that the ability of NASCAR drivers to drive in different conditions is impressive as he expects no one to struggle on the pavement comeback.

The upcoming NASCAR Cup Series race at Martinsville Speedway would be the first event in 3 weeks to be held on pavement since the dirt race at Bristol and the Easter break. The no.2 Team Penske car driver Brad Keselowski believed that no one would have problems with the transition back to usual conditions.

“Hopefully [problems] for everybody else but not for me. I hope they all forgot how to run on asphalt.” Keselowski joked in the conversation with ASN Motorsports. “But I suspect that’s not the case.”

The 2012 Cup Series champion also acknowledged the high class of fellow NASCAR competitors, stating that a driver needed to be versatile to reach success in the sport.

“You look at the guys like Tony Stewart, Kyle Larson, Christopher Bell. These guys run a dirt race on a Saturday night and come back and run an asphalt race on a Sunday. The versatility as required to be successful in NASCAR between road courses, short tracks, intermediate tracks, superspeedways, and dirt is pretty extensive,” Keselowski said.

“I think what you end up seeing is the cream rise to the top and these guys are pros, they switch back-and-forth pretty quickly,” he added.
