CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) One of the best things to happen to rebranded RFK Racing came exactly one year ago when NASCAR found an illegal part on Brad Keselowski’s car.

The illegal modification was found following just the fifth race of Keselowski's first season as part owner of the once-proud organization founded by Jack Roush. The ensuing penalty was crippling and essentially ended Keselowski's championship chances with 31 races remaining in the season.

Deep down, Keselowski recognized RFK wasn't good enough for the 2012 Cup champion to continue his run of eight consecutive playoff appearances. The penalty was the wakeup call the entire organization needed to make a massive cultural shift.
