Keselowski plays repair man in rush to fix Daytona 500 car

Unlike some drivers, Keselowski refused to leave his Penske crew behind to handle all the repair work. His team put the final touches on his car early Sunday morning, and Keselowski posted the 23rd-fastest speed in pole qualifying.

"I thought we were going to be a little faster than I was," Keselowski said.
