"I wanted all three, but sometimes that ain't meant to happen. But second, seventh and a first ain't bad at all," said Keselowski after the victory. The 28 -year-old driver from Rochester Hillis, Michigan, led the pack with 55 laps remaining and holding off all challengers in the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Kentucky Speedway.

"It wasn't the newest car we got, but it runs. They put together a black car from last year in 100-degree heat in one hour's time to get me back on the track," quips Keselowski. Whereas on the other side, Kasey Kahne had to be satisfied with second place with 4.399 seconds back of the winner. "I just hoped he'd run out of gas. No way I was catching him. We had stopped for a fill-up and I was hoping he'd shut down," says Kahne.
Commenting on the quick turnaround in cars as 'probably the toughest,' Crew chief Paul Wolfe said: "I'm just really proud of everybody on this team, to pull out a black car after having that crash on the first lap on the track just says a lot about all these guys. To be able to have a backup car that is capable of winning race says a lot," said Wolfe.
