Team Penske drivers Brad Keselowski & Ryan Blaney tangled in the final stage of Sunday’s Consumers Energy 400 NASCAR Cup Series race at Michigan International Speedway.
Brad Keselowski took the blame for wrecking Team Penske teammate Ryan Blaney during the final stage at Michigan International Speedway.
Keselowski tells MRN of taking out Blaney: “I hate it for him. He didn’t deserve that. I wish I could take it back, but I can’t.”
I just lost it. It’s my fault. I feel really bad for my teammate, Ryan Blaney. He didn’t deserve that. I just came off of turn four and the 4 car was behind me and he gave me a push and I swear I went into the corner like 20 miles an hour faster than I had been all day and got past the 11 and I went to get underneath the 12 and I just slipped.
I lost the back a little bit and when I went to collect it he was there and I wiped him out and myself out, so I feel terrible for everyone at Team Penske and especially Ryan Blaney. Gosh, he didn’t deserve that. I should have whoa’d way up. I had been running wide-open on the bottom all day and thought I could do it again, but with that big push I overestimated the grip and ruined our day.”
