CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Roger Penske has given his unwavering support to driver Brad Keselowski, who has now been involved in two post-race fights in four races.
Keselowski was confronted by Jeff Gordon following Sunday’s race at Texas Motor Speedway. Kevin Harvick pushed Keselowski from behind into a scrum of crew members. That ignited a brief brawl between the Team Penske and Hendrick Motorsports crews.
Keselowski and Gordon were bloodied in the melee, but neither driver appeared to throw a punch. Hendrick Motorsports said Monday it is reviewing what happened.
Penske said in a statement that Keselowski is a “champion who competes to win in every race, which is what I expect of him.” He added that actions by others were “unfortunate,” but Keselowski has his “100 percent support.”
