Brad Keselowski and Austin Dillon’s comments on each other after the race

After the race, Austin Dillon addressed the moment with Brad Keselowski on track. The RCR driver attributed what happened to “just hard racing,” before he slipped in some personal insight on the history between him and Keselowski along with his general view of “certain people.”

“We’ve gone at it a couple of times in the last two years; one time, I hit really hard. I just don’t like the way certain people race me, and it’s probably not the right way to do it under caution,” Dillon said.

On the other hand, Keselowski simply thought what happened was because of tempers running high in the heat of New Hampshire. “Hot in the cars, and we all let our tempers get the best of us,” Keselowski said of the incident.

As for his response to Dillon’s “certain people” comment, the RFK driver-owner revealed that instead of making it a big deal on television, he’d much rather talk to the other guy in person.
