Keselowski told Fox Sports that he and Team 2 had to achieve this victory after making unapproved adjustments to the car after qualifying and having to start the race at the back of the field.
“I feel like I have ruined this race several times and thought we were going to lose it today,” Keselowski told Fox Sports after his 31st career cup victory.
“I know we lost it like Chase lost it and it really stinks, and today we finally won it that way. “
For Elliott, this is a difficult second consecutive end to a Cup Series race. In the second race at Darlington last week, Kurt Busch sent Elliott as he ran second with 28 laps to go. Elliott got an angry response to Busch on the runway, but the two later put the incident to bed. This week it was something that the No. 9 team controlled at the end of the race.
“I’m just trying to make the best decisions possible,” Elliott told Fox Sports. “It’s part of it and you make decisions and live with them. “
After Keselowski, Elliott and Johnson were Ryan Blaney fourth and Kyle Busch fifth.
Alex Bowman had a very good race early on, winning stages 1 and 2, before Joey Logano won stage 3.
