Keselowski was on the inside and the back of his car wiggled, sending his car into Blaney’s car. Both slammed the SAFER barrier in Turn 2 and the Team Penske teammates were eliminated. The accident brought out the caution on Lap 96 of the 156-lap event.
Keselowski finished last in the 39-car field Sunday. Blaney finished 38th.
“I just lost it,” Keselowski told NBCSN. “It’s my fault. I feel really bad for my teammate Ryan Blaney. He didn’t deserve that. I just came off of Turn 4 and (Kevin Harvick) was behind me and he gave me a push. I swear I went into the corner like 20 mph faster than I had all day. Got past (Denny Hamlin) and got underneath (Blaney) and it just slipped. Lost the back a little bit. When I went to collect it, he was there and I wiped him and myself out. I feel terrible for everyone at Team Penske and especially Ryan Blaney. Gosh, he didn’t deserve that.”
Said Blaney: “That’s a shame to end our day like that. … It’s not going to carry over. Things happen. Mistakes happen. Just a shame.”
Keselowski finished second in Saturday’s race. The Michigan native has yet to win at his home track.
