NASCAR champion Brad Keselowski was summoned to meet with top executives following comments he made about the state of the sport.

Keselowski confirmed Saturday there was a discussion with NASCAR chairman Brian France and International Speedway Corp. CEO Lesa France Kennedy.

The Friday meeting coincided with a USA Today article in which Keselowski was outspoken about many areas of NASCAR. Both France and France Kennedy were specifically mentioned.

Keselowski has not been shy about voicing his opinion throughout his career, and vowed in his champions' speech last November to be an industry leader and help NASCAR grow.

He told The Associated Press on Saturday he won't change who he is as a result of the meeting, but may try to make things easier on himself going forward.
