The first short track weekend of the season brought a mix of emotions for Brad Keselowski and the 2 Crew.

The Deuce was strong, running in the Top 10 for most of the day and leading twice for a total of 40 laps. But the afternoon ended in frustration as, after a late pit stop, a miscommunication led Brad to find himself in the wrong spot on the restart, drawing the ire of NASCAR. He was forced to check down pit road for a penalty with just a few laps left and couldn’t recover, instead, getting stuck with a P18 finish.

“Nobody could figure out the lineup. There wasn’t enough communication and it was just a tough deal.”

Watch all the highlights below.

Had the car to compete at @bmsupdates …some unfortunate circumstances kept us from contending at the end. Ready to get to Richmond!
