NOT – Brad Keselowski

Heading into Bristol Keselowski had finished inside of the top-10 in six consecutive races following a poor showing in the Daytona 500. In the last three races Keselowski has finished 35th, 17th and 22nd.

Thanks to a win in the Auto Club 400, the No. 2 team can afford a few races with some poor finishes. That win almost guarantees Keselowski a spot in the 2015 chase. That being said, Kes and the No. 2 team need to get the train back onto the tracks if you will.

Nobody likes to have a string of bad finishes and Keselowski is currently in the midst of one of those strings right now. Over the last three races he hasn’t had bad cars necessarily, although his Talladega car was nothing to write home about. Instead, Keselowski and his team have just not had things fall their way for a few weeks now, which happens at times.

This weekend in Kansas Kes will be looking to turn things around. In 10 previous races at Kansas Speedway he has one win and an average finishing spot of 13th. Interestingly enough, he doesn’t seem to qualify well in Kansas with his average starting spot being 15th.
