Brad Keselowski #19 Reese Towpower Ford F-150 Brad Keselowski, driver of the No. 19 Reese Towpower Advance Auto Parts Ford F-150, made his second start this season in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) Thursday night during the UNOH 225 at Kentucky Speedway. Keselowski, the owner of Brad Keselowski Racing, qualified his Ford F-150 machine in the 12th position earlier in the day. Keselowski got off to a quick start moving all the way in to the eighth position on lap seven and was charging forward in a hurry. When the first caution came out on lap 26 crew chief, Chad Kendrick, brought Keselowski’s Reese Towpower Advance Auto Parts F-150 to pit road for two rounds up on the track bar, two right-side tires and fuel. The right-side only move was to gain track position off of pit road, which the No. 19 team did, restarting in the second position. Keselowski came to pit road under caution on lap 41 for four tires and fuel, but had to make an unexpected second pit stop under the same caution to ensure the tank was full after a fuel spill, costing the No. 19 team eleven spots on the following restart. By the time the fourth caution came out on lap 80, Keselowski had powered his Reese Towpower F-150 all the way in to the eighth spot, 14 seconds off the lead. Kendrick brought the No. 19 machine to pit road for fuel and left-side tires only. After another issue on pit road, this time for fuel, Keselowski had to make a second pit stop under green and ultimately restarted in the 19th position on lap 84. When the No. 99 spun off in turn four on lap 108, Keselowski came on to pit road in the 12th position and left in the 4th, only taking a little bit of fuel. From that point forward, he battled hard with a very strong Reese Towpower race Truck to finish second for the second consecutive year at Kentucky Speedway in the UNOH 225. Keselowski is slated to run the NCWTS Wednesday, August 21st night race at Bristol Motor Speedway later this season for BKR. The No. 19 BKR team currently sits ninth in the NCWTS owner points standings, 67 points back from first and 45 back from second. Brad Keselowski on his race: “Solid night in our Reese Towpower Ford. The BKR team is strong, and we are making major gains across the board from a competition standpoint. We just didn’t quite have enough tonight. I can’t wait to get back behind the wheel of my Truck again in Bristol.” Ryan Blaney #29 Cooper Standard Ford F-150 Ryan Blaney, driver of the Brad Keselowski Racing  No. 29 Cooper Standard Ford F-150, made his second career start at Kentucky Speedway in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) UNOH 225 under the lights Thursday night. After capturing his first pole and BKR’s first Truck pole in qualifying earlier in the day, Blaney started the night in command of the field. Blaney kept his Cooper Standard Ford out front until the first caution flag fell on lap 26 due to engine failure on the No. 62. Crew chief, Doug Randolph, brought the No. 29 machine on to pit road for a slight air pressure adjustment, four tires and fuel. Blaney restarted in the fourth position and by lap 36 Blaney was already back in the second position. When the No. 7 brought out the fourth caution of the night after a spinout in turn three on lap 80, Randolph brought the No. 29 Cooper Standard Ford, which was in the sixth position, to pit road for two rounds up on the track bar, four stickers and an air pressure adjustment in the left rear. Blaney had been saying his F-150 had tightened up and needed more drive off. A competitive battle all night was unfolding in dramatic fashion between the No. 54 machine and Blaney’s Cooper Standard F-150, but ended badly for Bubba Wallace when the two got together and the No. 54 Truck spun, bringing out the fifth caution of the race on lap 86. Blaney was concerned of a cut left rear, but his spotter, Joey Meier, assured him everything was just fine. Blaney’s last pit stop was on lap 108, both Blaney and Randolph congratulated the crew on an exceptional stop. The No. 29 machine came in second and after taking right-side tires, fuel and one round up on the track bar, the guys were able to maintain the second position even with the majority of the field stopping for fuel only. On the final restart of the race, Blaney battled Kyle Busch for the lead, but unfortunately had a little contact with the wall in an attempt to pass the leader on the high side. The slight damage from the contact created a tight condition on his No. 29 Ford. Blaney held onto his F-150 for the remainder of the race, which ended on a long green flag run, and he was able to come home in 5th position. It was not an ideal way to end the night after having such a strong Cooper Standard Ford F-150, but the team fought hard and managed to grab a top five finish. The No. 29 BKR team currently sits sixth in the NCWTS driver points standings, 47 points back from first and 25 back from second. Ryan Blaney on his race: “What a night it was. We sat on the pole and finished in the top five with a damaged Truck. I am so proud of everyone on this team, they always fight until the last possible second. Looking at the big picture, we continue to make strides in a positive direction. I can’t wait to get to Iowa — It’s one of my favorites.” -Brad Keselowski Racing PR
