Pre-race
Brad Keselowski: Thank you everybody for giving me such a fast car, I'll try to make the most of it. We've got a good shot today at getting us another W.

Lap 29
(Spotter talks to team about the No. 2 car as Keselowski attempts to pass teammate Joey Logano for third)
Joey Meier: Our nose was under Joey, but once we got under him we couldn't move. That's our weakness.

Lap 49
Keselowski: In traffic I lose all my drive

Lap 75
(Crew chief calls for four tires on green-flag pit stop)
Paul Wolfe: Four tires right here, hammer down

Lap 79
Keselowski: I'm taking care of my left rear here.

Lap 88/89
Meier:
Tires from the previous run look fine, Paul said no issue. / Set your pace, take care of it, lap 90.

Lap 90
Keselowski:
That was really good Paul, thank you. (As Keselowski retakes the lead.)

Lap 100
Meier:
Open track now, make it work.

Lap 112 (Under the second caution, the spotter provides info on Denny Hamlin's pit stop)
Meier: Two tires for the 11, two on the 11.

Lap 113 (Following the No. 2's four-tire stop)
Keselowski:
I really didn't think that many would take two there, Paul.
Wolfe: Copy, it's all good.
Meier: Earlier we put you 9th and you drove right past them and now you have two better tires.
Keselowski: Positive outlook, I like it Joey.

Lap 126 (Keselowski's Redd's Apple Ale chases down Matt Kenseth's yellow Dollar General car, retaking the lead a lap later)
Meier:
Yellow vs. red, go get it!
Wolfe: That was 10 laps (since the restart), good work.
Keselowski: Thank you, Paul.
Wolfe: There's a big piece of garbage on the front of the 20.
Keselowski: He can always let me by if he wants to.
Wolfe: He won't have to, just go get him.

Lap 211-213 (Pit stop under the fifth caution)
Wolfe:
What are you thinking adjustment-wise?
Keselowski: I'd prefer to leave it alone.
Meier: I think the 4 (Kevin Harvick) beat you only because you couldn't drive through the 42 (Kyle Larson), but that's fine.
Keselowski: Do you think these guys can make it on fuel? Or what are we thinking here? I'm not seeing how some of these guys got full of fuel if they took two.

Lap 249-251 (Sixth caution as the No. 2 takes two tires)
Keselowski:
I'd hate to be in your shoes Paul. I've got it shut off and I've been saving, but what are you thinkin'?
Keselowski:
If I come down pit road and somebody else stays out, I want tires.
Keselowski: I don't have to save anymore, right Paul?
Wolfe: No, everyone is good except for those who stayed out.
Keselowski: Those two, the 20 (Kenseth) and the 15 (Clint Bowyer), they just did gas right?
Meier: 15 did tires, they did two as well.

Lap 266
Meier: No issues out back. I'm off the radio until you get by (Jeff Gordon for the lead, which he does on Lap 270 for good).

Lap 270
Meier:
Clear clear clear. Nice battle, man. Thirty-one laps, no conservation here. You will catch lapped traffic by the end of the race.

Lap 282
Meier:
The 15 is the first one on tires. Give yourself some cushion on the lapped cars. 20 to go right here.

Lap 303
Meier:
No. 4 (Harvick) car ran out of gas, plenty of room!

Checkered flag
Keselowski:
Paul, you're spoiling me. Hell of a job, buddy, great job. Congratulations everybody!
Wolfe: It's fun bringing cars like this to the race track, it makes things a lot easier, doesn't matter what strategy we go with .Make sure you wear gloves in Victory Lane!
