Edwards Defends Move on Keselowski

As some of you already know, the Dodge Dealers 250 Nationwide race at the Gateway International Raceway ended with a literal spin, after Carl Edwards reignited the dispute with Brad Keselowski.

In the last turn of the final lap of the race, after being slowly pushed aside by Keselowski, Edwards thought it is best to return the favor and gave Keselowski a little push which sent it into the inside wall, down across the track to the inside wall and right in the path of Shelby Howard and Steve Arpin.

After the race, Edwards admitted he wasn't willing to let Keselowski take the win. Now the winner of the Dodge Dealers 250 pours some more fuel into the fire.

"The deal is he'll eventually learn he can't run into my car over and over and put me in bad situations," Edwards told NASCAR. "In every situation, there's an aggressor and there's someone who reacts. I was not the aggressor in this situation."

After the incident, Keselowski, who was leading the race, ended up in the 14th position. The incident looked much more serious when seen from his car, which got hit hard by those of Howard and Arpin.

"I'm sure he'll say how sorry he is, or how cool he thinks he is or how great of a guy he is in his own mind," said Keselowski.

The feud between the two drivers dates back to April last year, after a similar battle, which started with Keselowski, resulted in a huge crash. 8 fans were injured because of the flying debris from Edwards' car.
