When the Sprint Cup teams show up at a track for a race weekend they have to be ready for anything. The possibility of changing weather conditions, broken parts or even a crash during practice is something these teams deal with every weekend out on the road. This weekend at Kentucky Speedway what could have been disaster turned out to be a blessing in disguise.

Brad Keselowski wrecked his primary race car less than an hour in to the first practice at Kentucky Speedway. Saturday night Keselowski driving his back up car took the checkered flag over 4 seconds ahead of his closest competitor. So what does it take go from the back of tow truck to Victory Lane? It takes teamwork. Keselowski’s crew not only reworked and rebuilt his back up car to get it in race ready condition, they did it in 100 degree heat.

To make things even more difficult, the temperature dropped significantly with a passing cold front on Friday to change track conditions even more. Still Keselowski was able to get behind the wheel and guide his #2 Dodge to victory lane for the 3rd time this season. Kasey Khane finished second in the race,Denny Hamlin was third followed by Dale Earnhardt Junior and Jeff Gordon.
