Brad Keselowski: ‘Need a lot of speed to keep up with the Toyotas’ (video)

Brad Keselowski praises his team for calling an "excellent" race and explains why it's tough to keep up with the Toyotas.

Though he led laps and finished fifth in the Overton’s 400, Brad Keselowski conceded there wasn’t much he or anyone else could do stop the Toyota-powered cars at Pocono Raceway.

“Just need a lot of speed to keep up with the Toyotas,” Keselowski told NBCSN. “They’re about a half second faster than the field right now. You got to be perfect and then some and my guys there were perfect, but not enough to overcome the speed there. Got to go to work. Those guys have found a bunch and it doesn’t look like NASCAR is going to take whatever it is away.”

Keselowski was one of three Ford drivers to finish in the top 10, which had six Toyotas and the one Chevrolet of Chase Elliott.

While Keselowski led once for six laps, five Toyota drivers combined to lead 136 of the race’s 160 laps.

The top five was Keselowski’s second in row and his 11th of the year.
