Brad Keselowski walked away with the NASCAR Cup Series victory at Darlington Raceway on Sunday as drama with about 10 laps to go became the talking point afterward.

Chris Buescher and Tyler Reddick were racing for first place in the closing stages of the Goodyear 400. Reddick’s car slid into Buescher as he tried to pass him for the lead. Instead, Reddick pushed Buescher against the wall and cost them both a chance to win.

It was the second straight week Buescher missed a win as he finished 0.001 seconds behind Kyle Larson last weekend at Kansas.

Buescher clashed with Reddick in pit lane and had to be separated from the driver. He mentioned after the race that he was still trying to qualify for the NASCAR playoffs, while Reddick is essentially a lock after winning a race earlier in the season.

“It doesn’t work for me. We don’t have that sticker on my door right now,” he said of the NASCAR playoff sticker on his car. “I need you to be better. We’ve been fighting each other for so long, great.”

He then bemoaned his chances at Victory Lane last week and this week.

“It’s been two weeks in a row where we had a chance to win races,” Buescher said. “One, I’m going to relive in my head forever what I would have done differently (at Kansas). The other, I need someone else to be more mature about this.”

Reddick apologized for the incident.

“It’s hard to come away knowing that I used someone and took away their chance to win the race that had me running really clean,” Reddick said. “I have to work on it and try to make better decisions.”
