FORT Worth, Texas -- Brad Keselowski lashed out at NASCAR officials after Saturday's race at Texas Motor Speedway because of NASCAR inspectors forcing his team to change the rear-end housing in the No. 2 Ford before the race.
Both cars for Penske Racing, including teammate Joey Logano, had to make the change moments before the race. Logano barely made it out in time for the green flag. Logano started in the back, but finished fifth. Keselowski finished ninth.
"I have one good thing to say," Keselowski said. "That's my team and effort they put in today in fighting back with the absolute bull that's been the last seven days in this garage area. The things I've seen over the last seven days have me questioning everything that I believe in, and I'm not happy about it. I don't have anything positive to say and I probably should just leave it at that."
But he didn't. Knowing major penalties are likely for his team, the defending Sprint Cup champion made his feelings clear.
"There's so much stuff going on ... you have no f------ idea what's going on,'' he said. "And that's not your fault and that's not a slam on you. I could tell you there's nobody, no team in this garage with the integrity of the 2 team. And the way we've been treated over the last seven days is absolutely shameful.
"I feel like we've been targeted over the last seven days more than I've ever seen a team targeted. But my guys kept their heads on straight and they showcased why they are a winning team and championship team. We're not going to take it. We're not going to be treated this way."
Keselowski didn't go into details, but he did say he's concerned about his team's immediate future.
"I'm very worried about losing my crew chief, Paul Wolfe," Keselowski said. "But I tell you I've got one of best owners [Roger Penske] in the garage and I'm going to be first one at his desk telling him if anything happens. We'll both be in a meeting with anybody and everybody who'll listen.
"There's been so much stuff going on, I could make a list two pages long, but I'm out."
