What an amazing chain of events that Brad Keselowski went through on Saturday at Charlotte Motor Speedway to still end up in Victory Lane.
Actually, his struggles started in qualifying. His car wasn't that good in qualifying, and he was only able to muster a 23rd -place starting spot. So he was starting pretty deep in the field.
Come Saturday, the team had two issues to overcome in the race. The first was a loose wheel and then the second was a stuck jack under the car. So, they definitely were having their issues on pit road. That seems to be where crew chief Paul Wolfe shines. It doesn't always have to be when things are going as planned, but that's where that bunch starts doing things differently on pit road than others.
They stay out when people pit. They short pit on others. That jack issue bit them around Lap 84, which was the second caution flag. They kept Brad out there until Lap 134. Obviously with having to come back to pit road on the jack issue, they were able to load...
