CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - To hear Kurt Busch talk, his race team is struggling mightily and maybe some behind-the-scenes changes will save the season.
Then there's Brad Keselowski. He's excited about three weeks of progress that have him enjoying his best stretch yet in NASCAR's elite Sprint Cup Series.
That's the enigma that is Penske Racing right now.
Keselowski will start the Coca-Cola 600 from the pole, while defending race winner Busch will go off 26th in Sunday's race.
The two drivers are headed in opposite directions right now, and it's not clear if team owner Roger Penske knows what's wrong.
