FONTANA, Calif. —

After everything that's gone so well for Brad Keselowski this season, he isn't worried about starting from the back of the field Sunday.

Keselowski's Ford needed another engine Friday at Fontana, where he hasn't won yet, sending him to the back with Greg Biffle. He'll have a challenge if he hopes to tie Dale Earnhardt's 1995 NASCAR record of five straight top-five finishes to start a title defense.

But after taking in a Los Angeles Clippers game and watching "American Idol" this week, Keselowski seems comfortable in Hollywood after another strong start.

"Things are falling our way, and we're doing a great job of executing, and it takes both," Keselowski said. You can have all the luck in the world, and (mess) up your end and it means nothing, or you can do everything right and not have any luck, and it doesn't mean anything. All those things are coming together now, and I hope we aren't using it up too early in the season, because the Chase is when it really counts."

The defending Sprint Cup series champion and current points leader also finished 19th in Saturday's Nationwide race, bedeviled by numerous small problems with his Ford.

Biffle led Saturday's practice session with a lap of 186.253 mph. When told Biffle believes he would need 100 laps to go from worst to first, Keselowski cracked: "I feel like I can do it in 99."
