Keselowski talks about end of Las Vegas race

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

HAVE YOU BEEN ABLE TO FIND OUT WHAT BROKE? "No, they'll have to take it apart. At the end we have to go to inspection and stuff, so we're not allowed to look. I just know it was something major. It wouldn't turn and I lost brakes, so that's a pretty good indicator, but that's the way it goes. That's racing and that's why you watch until the end and you never know what's gonna happen."

ANY WAY TO DESCRIBE THE FRUSTRATION? "It's frustrating, but you put yourself in position to win and good things will happen. That happened to us last week and didn't happen this week, so you just pick up the pieces and move on. Luckily, they're really big pieces. We've got a lot to be proud of."

WHEN THAT HAPPENS YOU DON'T WANT TO TAKE EVERYONE OUT, BUT YOU STILL WANT TO GIVE IT EVERYTHING YOU'VE GOT. "Yeah, you just try to make the most of what you can -- every day, every second. I was still trying to get the best finish I could and still lucky to come out with a top-five."

DID YOU FEEL LIKE YOU WERE GOING TO WRECK? "I just had three-quarter speed and when everybody is charging behind you that's gonna cause a wreck. I got of the way the best I could and I don't know if it was enough, but I saw they wrecked. Maybe that was related and maybe it wasn't."

HOW WOULD YOU SUMMARIZE YOUR EFFORT? "We had a great day. We ran up front and led a lot of laps. We were the fastest car at the end and just didn't come together. That's part of how racing works."
