Brad Keselowski who drives the No.6 Ford Mustang for RFK racewhich he co-owns, has faced heavy penalties for an illegal modification found on her car during a post-race inspection.
The NextGen car is a complete stock car with standard parts supplied by the dealer and any modifications will not be tolerated by NASCAR‘s new strict rules and regulations.
It’s not what we want. Nobody wants to be in that position,” says Brad Keselowski
Brad Keselowski had 100 driver points deducted, which dropped his standings from 16th to 35th. He will start this weekend’s race in COTA as the lowest-ranked full-time Cup Series driver of all time. Although he was thrown down the points table, it didn’t affect his morale.
Brad Keselowski stated that the fines imposed on him and his team would not affect their performance in the upcoming races and also said that nobody wants it. He added that they will make the best of it and use this as an opportunity to get stronger and come back better.
“No, it’s not paralyzing. It’s not what we want. Nobody wants to be in this position: “We will get what we make out of it. And we can use this moment to drown in our own tears or grow stronger and better. I’m committed to the latter,” said Brad Keselowski after the 26th qualifying sessionth on Saturday at COTA.
Brad Keselowski has not disclosed allegations against his team, nor has NASCAR publicly commented on them. NASCAR President Steve Phelps said the team was aware of the reasons for the punishment and therefore decided to withhold all information about the incident.
“They knew in advance the penalties for tampering with a specification part.” Steve Phelps said the Associated Press.
This withholding of information did not go down well with some racers. Brad Keselowski later said that NASCAR was responsible for ensuring that races were conducted fairly and that it was the responsibility of teams to abide by the rules imposed.
