HOMESTEAD, Fla. (AP) -- Brad Keselowski is leaving his cellphone behind. 

Keselowski plans to ditch his phone during NASCAR's Sprint Cup finale Sunday. His decision comes days after NASCAR fined him $25,000 for having the phone in his car. It was discovered because he tweeted during a red flag at Phoenix. 

The punishment confused many who wondered why Keselowski was penalized for Sunday's tweets when he was celebrated for doing the same thing during the season opener. 

Keselowski feels the same, saying "I'm confused a lot. I'll just add that to the list." 

He also feels "naked" without his phone. "It's my security blanket. ... It is what it is at this point. I just have to move on and focus on the weekend ahead."
