NASCAR Number: 46

May 27, 2013, Reid Spencer, NASCAR Wire Service,

46: The number of races between the two most recent DNFs (did not finish) for reigning NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Brad Keselowski, who was swept away in a three-car incident late in Sunday night’s Coca-Cola 600. Contact between the cars of Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Danica Patrick sent Patrick’s Chevrolet up the track and into Keselowski’s Ford, knocking Keselowski hard into the outside wall near the apex of Turns 3 and 4. Keselowski retired after 317 of 400 laps, his first DNF since the 2012 season-opening Daytona 500.
