Brad Keselowski flunks Michigan post-race inspection
Brad Keselowski had an excellent third-place run in Sunday's Pure Michigan 400 at Michigan International Speedway, but afterwards his No. 2 Team Penske Ford failed to pass NASCAR's Laser Inspection System in post-race tech.
NASCAR likely will announce any penalties to the team on Wednesday morning, when it typically issues bulletins for violations from the prior weekend.
The cars of race-winner Kyle Larson, runner-up Chase Elliott and Carl Edwards all passed at-track inspection and will be taken to the NASCAR R&D Center in Concord, N.C., for further evaluation. NASCAR typically takes the top-two finishers and a random third car to inspect after each race.
For his part, Keselowski said he finished about where his car ran all day.
"We were a third-place car most of the day," he said. "On long runs, we were maybe the best car. For most of the day we were a third-place car. Finished where we deserved."
Michigan native Keselowski still hasn't won at MIS, his home track, and that's been frustrating.
"All in all, a lot to be proud of. A heck of an effort," he said. "Seems like every time we come here, we want to win so bad, we run third or fourth every time, which is really good in the Sprint Cup Series, but it's certainly not the win we're looking for. Good and bad, I guess."
