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

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

BRAD KESELOWSKI, No. 2 Redd’s Apple Ale Ford Fusion - "Well, first off, I am really proud of the speed we had today. The guys did a great job. I feel like this one is kind of on me and the circumstances. I was trying to do something to help my car out and I knew it was going to break and I was going to get passed so I was trying to make whatever move I could do to help clean it off, and I'm not sure I did enough to make a difference. I made enough of a difference to lose the lead in the process. I thought I had enough of a cushion, and when I got down in the corner and the car in front of me got sideways I realized I had made a mistake. But it was too little, too late, but still proud of the speed, good execution today on probably all ends but mine, and something to look forward to as we move forward and come back here in a month or so."

BRAD, THE TRASH I GUESS DIDN'T BLOW OFF BUT YOUR ENGINE DIDN'T BLOW, SO WAS IT A MISTAKE NOT TO YIELD THE LEAD, OR DID DOING THAT KEEP IT FROM HAVING THE TRASH COME OFF? "I don't think it came off. I don't know. I haven't seen what it looked like before and after. Yeah, it was definitely a mistake because the engine made it, but it probably shouldn't have. It was one of those deals, I think I was going to get passed because I was really down on power down the straightaway. I don't know, I think so, but it's hard to say."

HAD YOU NOT HAD THE WIN THIS SEASON WOULD YOU HAVE PLAYED THAT DIFFERENTLY? WOULD YOU HAVE STAYED OUT TO TRY TO GET YOUR FIRST WIN OF THE YEAR? "No, I ran it like I would have run it no matter what. It was going to break and I thought I had a shot to clean it off and not lose time, and I misjudged it."

BRAD, DALE SAID THAT HE FELT LIKE YOU HAD THE BETTER CAR. IS THAT HOW YOU FEEL? "No, I thought we were pretty equal. I thought there were five or six cars that were really equal, the 4, the 14, the 41, the 88 and us. I thought it was kind of a lottery draw as to whoever had the lead in the clean air as far as who was going to win it, and just ‑‑ Dale once he got up front, he was probably a little better than I was with the clean air."

THE NEW TURN 2, ANY PROBLEMS THERE, ANYBODY DO ANYTHING CRAZY? IT DIDN'T SEEM TO BE A FACTOR IN THE RACE. "Yeah, I thought it was great. I didn't see anything. I didn't think it was a major change other than if you got in a real jam you could still make it through the corner, but I thought it was great."

HOW MUCH DID YOU KNOW ABOUT JOEY BREAKING DOWN THE STRETCH, DID THAT ENTER INTO YOUR HEAD MENTALLY AT ALL? "I just picked up on it looking at the monitor about 30 seconds at all. I didn't know anything."

WITH DANICA AND HER SPEED, SHE ENDED UP GOING ON THE APRON AT THE TAIL END OF THE RACE BECAUSE SHE WAS HANDLING SO BAD, DID ANYTHING ABOUT HER SPEED SURPRISE YOU? "No, she just got in the corner and I could tell she was trying to let me go on the inside and I don't think she knew the situation I was in and I was trying to follow her, and I was trying to follow her towards the top side, and she just kept going higher and higher and higher until it sucked me in higher and higher. I just couldn't get out of the wake and lost my momentum. It's one of those things that happens."

CAN YOU STRESS HOW IMPORTANT CLEAN AIR WAS FOR YOU TODAY? "It just was going to dictate who was going to win the race. That's part of racing. That's part of really all of racing, the aerodynamics taking over motorsports, and we've all kind of learned to live around it and it makes the restarts so critical. But it's just kind of part of the deal."
