It wasn't the latest edition of the Penske Files, but it might give the organization an idea for an upcoming episode.

Team Penske tested Tuesday at the Milwaukee Mile, but Ryan Blaney's mind was on Sesame Street when he tweeted a picture of his Penske teammate Joey Logano, decked out in his yellow Shell Pennzoil fire suit. In turn, the two-time winner in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in 2014 let his NASCAR Nationwide Series teammate know who the big dog is.

After the test, Brad Keselowski responded to a fan's tweet, asking about his hand that needed four stitches for a cut from a champagne bottle following his second win of the season in the Quaker State 400 presented by Advance Auto Parts at Kentucky Speedway.

The response backed up Keselowski's comments on Saturday night when he said, "The last time I had stitches it was seven days or so, and we're going to Daytona, which is probably the easiest track you could ask for.

"No, I didn't break any bones or any of that stuff. I just put a big gash, so I don't think it'll be an issue."

After running a tripleheader at Kentucky, Keselowski is entered in only the Coke Zero 400 (Saturday, 7:30 p.m. ET, TNT) while Logano will drive in the Cup race and will also drive the No. 22 Ford Mustang in the Subway Firecracker 250 (Friday, 7:30 p.m. ET, ESPN2).
