Keselowski qualified for his third career Chase for the Sprint Cup. After missing out on last year’s Grid, Keselowski talked with the media explaining why his team has run better this year.
“I think working with Ford and getting another year under our belt, certainly some major progress there,” he said. “I think last year was a bit of a kick in the butt, not the way you want but it was enough to really push us all and find another level.
“We did a great job in 2012, but in the sports world you've got to keep progressing, and everyone else progressed and we didn't. We didn't progress enough last year, and this year we really have upped our game, and man, this is an incredible team. I feel lucky to drive, I feel lucky to be in the Sprint Cup Series.”
