Buescher finished 27th at Kansas after blowing his right-rear tire with six laps to go. You’re just constantly doing risk analysis,” said Keselowski, who ranks fifth in the standings. The double-edged sword cut Keselowski last year during the fall race at Bristol, when his tire blew with 87 laps to go at the .533-mile concrete track.
