Brad Keselowski felt “grateful, but not satisifed” with his third-place finish at Kansas on Sunday.
The NASCAR Cup Series race at Kansas polesitter Brad Keselowski had a great run – he led the majority of the opening stage as well as finished 4th in both mid-race stages, scoring 14 out of 20 maximum points. The Team Penske driver had a good final restart, which allowed him to finish in the top 3. After the race, Keselowski spoke about the race outcome.
“Yeah, I try to be grateful, but satisfied is not a good word. Satisfied would be winning,” Keselowski said.
Though the no.2 car driver did not make it back-to-back to the victory lane, he was glad that he and the team maximized the performance last Sunday.
“But grateful that the day could have been a lot worse and grateful for my team and the effort they’ve put in to put us in a position to have a day like today where, like I said, we scored a lot of points and we go home with not a trophy but another top 5 with quite a few laps led and quite a few stage points scored,” he commented.
Brad Keselowski now sits 6th in the drivers’ standings as well as in the projected Playoffs rankings.
