CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - Defending Sprint Cup Series champion Brad Keselowski ran only ran two laps Saturday night in the All-Star race before car problems forced him to take his No. 2 Ford behind the wall at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Keselowski said something broke in the back of the drive train, “either the transmission or the gear shaft.”

He was hoping to come up with the $1 million prize that comes with winning the exhibition event but said that will have to wait for another year.

“You can be mad about it or move on and get ready for next week. We’ll do the latter,” Keselowski said.

The NASCAR series will be back at CMS next week for the Coca-Cola 600.

“You’d like to learn a little bit more about the track and the race, but I’ve got a teammate out there in Joey Logano and hopefully he can learn something,” Keselowski said.

Rain has delayed the race after 13 laps.
