Bob Keselowski: (Carl Edwards) Ain’t Gonna Kill My Boy

Bob Keselowski is ready to get the old racing uniform back out.

Following a thrilling finish in the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Gateway, that had Carl Edwards wrecking Brad Keselowski for the win, the ex-race car driver has had enough of Carl Edwards.

“I’ll get my own (darn) uniform back out because this is ridiculous,” said Keselowski. “He ain’t gonna kill my boy.”

But while Bob is frustrated with Carl, perhaps the first person he should talk to is Brad.

On the final lap, Keselowski dove to the inside of Edwards going into turn 1, washed up the track, and nearly spun Edwards’ #60 car. Keselowski got the advantage in turns 3 and 4, but Edwards was able to get a fender to Keselowski’s quarter-panel coming onto the frontstretch, and hooked him into the outside wall.

What insued was a melee. But it could be argued that Keselowski started it all.

A lot was made out of the incident the two drivers had in Atlanta, where Edwards retaliated on Keselowski and wound up flipping him into the catchfence. Several people believed that Edwards should have been penalized, or even thrown in jail. And several more will probably see things the same way after this weekend.

But what we have to remember is that Edwards has never wrecked Keselowski without being provoked; the Atlanta incident was caused due to a culmination of several previous ordeals between the two drivers. And it’s time for the Keselowski’s to stop playing victim in this rivalry.

It can be argued that this does not fall within the realm of “have at it boys” racing. But if somebody is going to steal something from you, isn’t it your right to take it back?

You can see the video of the incident below. Bob Keselowski’s interview comes at about the 7-minute mark. Brad was not able to be interviewed in the allotted time:

    There’s racin’ and there’s wreckin’ and Edwards ain’t racin’!!

  • Jamerson Wesson

    The Keselowskis are playing victim? What races are you watching, Ben? The entire thing that sparked Carl Edwards’ anger in Atlanta was Edwards trying to change lanes down in front of Keselowski and cut off his nose. Keselowski didn’t let off for Edwards’ abrupt move and clipped Edwards. Edwards made a stupid move, and blamed it on Keselowski not showing the proper respect. And in this case, there’s a huge difference to me between a “bump and run” and blatantly wrecking someone. Edwards could have gotten back on Brad to give him a “bump and run” of his own and still win. But he chose to wreck Keselowski on the last lap to win, knowing that was his best way to guarantee the win… no potential for a green-white-checkered where someone else could get a run on him. As far as I’m concerned, Edwards has been driving like an idiot, playing out this vendetta he’s got against Keselowski, and endangering lives in the process. It needs to stop.

    Take away the win and the points. Suspend Edwards from the Nationwide series for the rest of the season and for five Sprint races….before he gets someone killed!!

  • Matthew

    The author of this article is an idiot. Wrecking someone on the straight-away to win is cheap. This is not a bump-n-run. If you can’t present the facts as they happen and withing the context, as racing has been for years, don’t write about it.

    Edwards thinks he is the F’ing Road Warrior.

    He is going to kill someone. The Smug little UCKER!

    People start these blogs and try to act like they know everything about a subject, which is clearly the case here. What I saw was “Cousin” Carl can’t handle being bumped. And then he’s got the gall to brag, “he (Brad) tried to take something away from me”. Huh?!? First off, it was “yours”?!? Second, Brad bumps Carl, so Carl WRECKS Brad?!? Him (and the writer of this blog) I think are friggin’ SPACE CADETS! Any sane person can just watch the race and see what happened! Carl has been the instigator every single time, and Brad has been the recipient. PERIOD! Anyone with eyes and sense can see that! But, not to the new fans, who obviously have trouble jump starting their brains. I was an Edwards fan when he started, big time. Liked his “attitude”, his approach to fans, and his racing. Was also a Brad fan, big time, when he came up. But, you have to weigh the “evidence”, and in this case, this isn’t racin’, this is a guy who is NUTS with a steering wheel in his hand, and a back flip for a tainted win! How can anyone root for that?!? How sick.

  • will cornett

    the way i see baby brad set president the last couple of years in how he races people by wrecking other drivers to gain a position while not even being in a situation for a win theres a time to use the chrome horn until he learns this he gets what he deserves i’m not a cuz carl fan but if iwas in the car i would do the same thing to the spoiled little brat

  • big W

    way to go will, finally someone saw the same racing I did
    as for harvick and dispain and ray dumblap they need to look at the final lap in its intireity

    • will cornett

      yeah people amaze me sometimes

  • ken s

    What kind of a moron are you? I’m not a fan of either driver but I have been a race fan for 35 years. What Brad did in turn 1 is accepted as racing. What Edwards did at the checkers is not. The only person who Brads dad needs to speak to is Edwards,preferably in a dark alley.And Ben, you need to get a clue.

  • rick

    Has everyone forgotten about Talladega???!!! That was BS.

  • big W

    you are right rick talladega was bullstuf

  • big W

    ken s hole your a fool to think what brad did was racing
    carl won so go cry in your crib ya baby

  • mark

    If Bob is worried about his boy, then the boy shouldn’t be on the track.
