|“I am just thankful to be at this level,” commented Keselowski in Victory Lane. “I never dreamed I would ever be in the Cup Series. I just dreamed of making a living in racing. I worked with guys like Mike Mittler who taught me the grit and energy and effort you have to have to be successful in this sport. Mike was local to this area and he passed away yesterday. It hurts to lose guys like that because they mean so much to me and the sport. I think this was hopefully something he would be proud of.”
Bowyer also battled hard, finishing P5, with Roush Fenway Racing’s, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. finishing P11, followed by Aric Almirola P12, Harvick P13, Daniel Suárez P14, and Joey Logano P15.
