HOMESTEAD, Fla. (AP) - Brad Keselowski has concerns that Ford could "take a drubbing next year" if there isn't more manufacturer parity in NASCAR.
Martin Truex Jr. won the season finale and the Cup championship in a Toyota. Kyle Busch was second in a Toyota, which won 16 of 36 Cup races this season. Ford and Chevrolet won 10 apiece. Chevy will debut its newly designed Camaro in 2018, which also could outperform the Fords.
Keselowski finished seventh in the race and fourth in the final standings.
Keselowski previously said Toyota had a season-long advantage.
"When that car rolled out at Daytona, and I think we all got to see it for the first time, I think there was two reactions," he said. "One, we couldn't believe NASCAR approved it, and two, we were impressed by the design team over there.
"I don't think anyone ever had a shot this year the second that thing got put on the racetrack and approved. It kind of felt like Formula 1, where you had one car that made it through the gates heads and tails above everyone, and your hands are tied because you're not allowed to do anything to the cars in those categories that NASCAR approves to really catch up."
