Keselowski, racing aggressively to try to get his laps back, later triggered a 14-car accident with 51 laps remaining.
"Brad made a pretty bold move early, a mind-boggling move, in going in front of Danica and spun out in front of the field and got away with it," Matt Kenseth said. "This time we weren't so lucky. If it was the other way around and it was anybody else except for him, we'd all be getting lectured."
Jeff Gordon also chastised Keselowski.
"I had seen him for several laps driving over his head being pretty aggressive," Gordon said. "He wasn't doing anybody any favors, nor himself."
Keselowski accepted blame.
"I just spun out in front of the whole field," he said.
BIFFLE'S BAD BREAK: Greg Biffle will be re-thinking the finish of Sunday's race for a long time after a late caution prevented him from making an attempt at winning the race.
He was second behind Hamlin and considering when to make his move when NASCAR threw the yellow flag for debris on the track. It froze the field on the final lap of the race, and Biffle had to settle for second.
It would have been a rewarding win for Biffle, who is still looking for a victory to earn a spot in the Chase.
"It's sort of bittersweet for us," Biffle said. "We've still got some work to do, but it sure would have been nice to get a win toward the Chase."
HOT FEET: Many drivers complained throughout the race about their feet getting too hot on the floorboard of the cars during the race. It led to a funny post-race exchange between Biffle and third-place finisher Clint Bowyer.
Bowyer: "It's just excruciating out there, it's unbelievable."
