Brad Keselowski (@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 (@TeamBKR), 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.
"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." - Brad Keselowski
