Keselowski Leads the Field in Second Practice at Kansas

Brad Keselowski was the fastest in the second practice session. The driver of the No. 2 Miller Lite Team Penske Ford continued his run for a “perfect weekend” with a time of 28.427 and a speed of 189.960 mph.

“We know the grooves and all of that is going to change, so we have some speed but we have to keep working on it because you’re gonna see comers and goers as the track changes and we don’t want to be a goer. We want to be one of those guys that comes to the front and stays in the front, so we’ve got to keep working.” Keselowski said.

Matt Kenseth was next in his Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) Toyota with a time of 28.539 and a speed of 189.215 mph. Joey Logano showed (horse racing reference) in his Team Penske Ford with a time of 28.562 and a speed of 189.062 mph. Ryan Blaney took his Wood Brothers Racing Ford to fourth with a time of 28.585 and a speed of 188.910 mph. Brian Scott finished his Hillman-Circle Sport LLC Chevrolet in fifth with a time of 28.587 and a speed of 188.897 mph.

My name is Tucker White. I'm currently majoring in journalism at the University of Tennessee. I started getting into NASCAR around 1998 and started following the sport full-time in 2001. I live and breathe everything related to NASCAR. I also have a burning passion for all things auto racing. I've been following Formula 1 since 2011 and am slowing getting into IndyCar. I do my best to keep up with the World Endurance Championship. But at the end of the day, NASCAR is my primary beat. Being both a native of Knoxville, Tennessee and a student at UT, I'm naturally a die-hard Tennessee Volunteers fan. Especially when it comes to Tennessee Volunteers football. While I'll never stop being one, it can be the most heart-wrenching thing ever. Since 2005, this team has delivered more than its fair share of heartbreaking moments and inhuman frustration. I've stuck with the Vols from the best of times - 1998 National Champions - to the worst of times - 2005 to present - because I know that it'll make it all so worth it when the mighty Vols finally return to the top of the college football landscape. In the last few years, I started to really get into baseball. This past season, I decided to pledge my sporting allegiance to the Atlanta Braves. It didn't turn out too well as they finished 67-95 and finished fourth in the NL East. I do see great potential with the young roster and they might be a force to be reckoned with in the coming years.
