Keselowski Doesn't Mind Penalty for Edwards Flap
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Brad Keselowski doesn't mind NASCAR's decision to put him on probation for his latest altercation with Carl Edwards.

In fact, Keselowski views the hand-slapping as a favor because he won't be under any pressure to retaliate against Edwards this weekend in Indianapolis.

The feuding drivers tangled in the Nationwide Series race last weekend in St. Louis, where Keselowski bumped Edwards out of the lead and Edwards then wrecked Keselowski to win.

NASCAR docked Edwards 60 points, fined him $25,000 and placed both drivers on probation through Dec. 31.

They'll race against each other twice this weekend: Saturday night in the Nationwide race and Sunday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
