Dover International Speedway is one of the toughest tracks and has one of the most difficult pit roads on the entire schedule. Cole Whitt’s jackman, Nate House, found out the hard way when he ended up on Brad Keselowski’s hood during Sunday’s race.
The incident occured under a caution flag pit stop as Keselowski was leaving his pit stall as Whitt was heading into the stall in front of the former champion. With Whitt to his outside, Keselowski had to drive through the No. 35 Front Row Motorsports pit box to exit pit road. As Keselowski drove away, the No. 35 pit crew was already in the process of starting their stop.
House had to act quickly, jumping on the hood of Keselowski’s No. 2 Team Penske Ford with the jack in hand.

After a slight delay, Keselowski pulled away and Whitt’s crew completed the stop like nothing happened.
Luckily, none of the crew members were injured. The incident left Keselowski a little rattled, though.
