2014 Dover: Brad Keselowski NASCAR Sprint Cup Post-Race Press Conference

BRAD KESELOWSKI, No. 2 Miller Lite Ford Fusion

YOU HAD A GOOD SOLID RESTART THERE ON THAT LAST CAUTION AND GOT WITHIN AN ARM'S REACH OF JIMMIE JOHNSON, BUT YOU JUST WEREN'T ABLE TO CLOSE THE DEAL. TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE RACE. "Yeah, we just had an up‑and‑down day. I started up front, and that's a part, and faded to the back pretty early in the race. We just weren't where we needed to be in the car. Paul Wolfe and the team made some good adjustments and got us where we needed to be, and took back off and had a couple really strong runs and drove from I can't remember whether it was 13th or 14th up to second there. I thought we were going to get a crack at Jimmie and then that last caution came out and we just kind of whiffed on pit road, came out way behind. I drove back up there, and with the help of the restart got up to second, and I think we were pretty close to even to Jimmie, it was just a matter of who was going to be out front, and we just never could really take advantage of our pit stall to get in front of him."

BRAD KESELOWSKI PRESS CONFERENCE CONTINUED - WITH THE HOLE, I GUESS NOT REALLY A POTHOLE, BUT THE CRACK OR THE CRUMBLING TRACK IN TURN 2, WHAT DID YOU GUYS SEE? DID YOU COME CLOSE TO IT WHEN IT WAS FALLING APART AND DID IT SEEM TO HOLD UP WELL ENOUGH, OR DID YOU JUST AVOID IT AFTER THAT? "I think NASCAR did a good job, or whoever, I think it was NASCAR. Whoever fixed it did a good job of repairing it. It started to come back up at the end, but I didn't think it was a major issue. It was definitely a major issue at first when it happened. I could feel it when I was driving over it, and you knew it was only going to get worse. If somebody didn't repair a small hole, it was going to turn into a big hole, and I'll give NASCAR credit enough to realize that and stop and fix it before a problem like that escalated, which it would very quickly. I thought the repair was pretty good. Yeah, I didn't really notice it a lot. You could feel it a little bit, but I thought it was probably just right."

CAN YOU TALK ABOUT THE PIT CREW THIS WEEK. YOU GUYS MADE SOME ADJUSTMENTS. JUST WONDERING HOW IT WORKED OUT AND WHY THE CHANGE. "Yeah, we're just not where we want to be. We haven't been where we want to be for probably the last year and a half, and it's keeping us from winning races. You know, I think that's the bottom line. We're making adjustments and we're going to continue to make adjustments until we get it right. I feel really good about the last one we made, and the guy who stepped in did an excellent job in his position, but we still weren't where we needed to be in others. We have to keep working."
