Brad Keselowski seems to have nailed the tweaked rules package for tonight, as he’s been running some of the fastest laps and near the front all night. Unfortunately, he also nailed one of his tire guys, causing him to rejoin in 10th place.
It’s been a weird night for NASCAR’s pit lane. Jamie McMurray also clipped a crew member, but it was Jeff Gordon’s jack man.
“I think I hit the guy on the 24,” radioed in McMurray. “Tell him I’m sorry.”
When Gordon asked about his crewmember’s condition, his crew chief Alan Gustafson radioed back, “Yeah, he’s okay. He’s pissed, but he’s okay.”
Neither driver received penalties for the pit lane oops.
