PLAYERS: Brad Keselowski
Hendrick Motorsports owner Rick Hendrick says defending Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski should start ''representing himself and the sport with more class'' after Keselowski accused Hendrick of stealing information by poaching employees from Ford teams. Keselowski was at Ford headquarters in Dearborn, Mich., on Thursday. According to ESPN.com, he said his Penske Racing team has been reluctant to share information with Roush Fenway Racing on their Ford cars. He said Hendrick Motorsports and Joe Gibbs Racing ''have this nasty little habit'' of hiring away employees and ''stealing'' information from the Ford teams. Hendrick says Keselowski ''misrepresents the facts and spends a lot of time making insinuations and accusations about other teams when he should be focused on his own program and competing at a high level.''
