Brad Keselowski has made a habit of ruffling other drivers' feathers on the track. And Keselowski along the way, Keselowski has also roughed up a few times himself.
Since he was involved in his share of incidents last season – both those of his doing and those that weren't – Keselowski was asked Thursday if he keeps a list of drivers for payback.
"Yeah, it's on my phone – it's in 'Notes,'" he joked. "It's capitalized: 'THE LIST.'"
Keselowski was clearly just kidding. In reality, he said, there is no list – at least not on paper.
"I don't keep a list," he said. "Well, maybe I do. It's probably in the back of my mind. It's not written down though, if that makes you feel any better."
The bottom line is, Keselowski said, there's no "reset" button in the offseason that somehow forgives all past incidents. He's well aware of both the drivers he owes, and the ones who owe him.
He wouldn't name names, but he used the Kyle Busch/Kevin Harvick wreck at Homestead last season as an example.
"I couldn't sleep last night, and I was watching the Homestead race and remembering Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick wrecking each other – or however you want to look at it – and thinking to myself, 'I'm pretty sure Kyle didn't forget about that over the winter,'" he said. "And I've got my own ones I haven't forgotten about either. We don't forget, man."
