Keselowski likes NASCAR low-downforce rules

The low downforce rules separate the wankers from the real drivers

Brad Keselowski finished second after starting from the pole in Sunday's Bojangles' Southern 500, his sixth top-five finish of the 2015 season.

Keselowski led 196 laps of the 367-lap event, but wasn't able to get by eventual winner Carl Edwards in the closing laps.

"I needed to be a little bit better everywhere. Needed to be better on the restarts. I brushed the wall a little bit. Needed to be better everywhere," Keselowski said.

Keselowski was very vocal about the rules package being used for this weekend's Sprint Cup Series race on Saturday after winning the pole, saying it favors his driving style.

"I loved it. It separates the racecar drivers from the pretenders and that's the way it should be," Keselowski said.

"We led a lot of laps which was something to be appreciative of. It was a race that ended up in cycles."

Despite not winning, Keselowski was happy with the outcome.

"Lot to be proud of. We've been right there but haven't been able to close it out," he said.

Keselowski's spot in this year's Chase for the Sprint Cup is secure and even though the standard 2015 Sprint Cup rules package will be in place next week at Richmond, and for the remainder of the season, there's still a lot to take from Darlington.

"There's a lot to take from tonight for us that extends beyond the downforce. Restarts, pit road, dialing in some suspension stuff," Keselowski said.

"Mile and a halfs are the bread and butter of this sport. You get in the Chase, you win the mile and a halfs, you win the championship." Robbie Mays/MRN
