With the surface set to be repaved after today’s STP 400, the lump of asphalt, which Warren brought to the media center for show-and-tell, became proof of the resurfacing’s necessity.
Brad Keselowski was among a dozen or more drivers who considered a repave unnecessary and indicated that he like the racing surface as it is. But he conceded that he wouldn’t want a jagged hunk of rock coming loose during a race.
“I’d be glad (for the repave) if it was that piece that went through my grill and ruined my day — yeah, absolutely," Keselowski said. “I can respect the decision accordingly."
