Brad Keselowski tied Kyle Busch for the third-best average finish of 2016 with a mark of 11.47.

Keselowski’s season was highlighted by two long streaks. From May’s event at Talladega SuperSpeedway through June’s Michigan International Speedway race he scored six straight top-10s. His next streak began in Michigan’s second race and ran until Charlotte Motor Speedway in October (seven consecutive), but back-to-back DNFs with identical 38th-place results on its heel put an end to his Chase hopes. If the pattern continues, look for Kez to be streaky again in 2017.

On Sunday, Brad Keselowski announced his engagement to Paige White.

Brad Keselowski entered this spring’s Good Sam 500 with a four-race streak of top-10s and a worst of 11th dating back to the start of 2012.

Crash damage cost him six laps and sent him home 29th, but that can be ignored from his handicap. Expect a finish in the sixth to 11th range and plan accordingly.

Brad Keselowski posted the fastest single lap in the final practice session for the AAA Texas 500 with a speed of 190.685 mph.

Keselowski qualified fourth on Friday and had a 10-lap average that suggests a top-10 finish on Saturday morning. If he fits a niche on your roster, he can be activated without concern.

Sprint Cup regular Brad Keselowski, driving the No. 22 Discount Tire Ford Mustang, had the best 10-lap consecutive average speed in the XFINITY Series final practice for the O'Reilly Auto Parts Challenge at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, TX.

The average speed of 179.550 mph was best of the 14 cars that ran at least 10 consecutive laps on the track for this final practice session. No. 2 Austin Dillon, No. 18 Matt Tifft, No. 88 Kevin Harvick and No. 20 Erik Jones are the rest of the top five on this list.

Brad Keselowski has scored 18 top-10 finishes in his last 20 attempts on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks.

This streak began early last season. Notably, one of his sub-par performances came this spring at Texas Motor Speedway when he finished 18th. His other bummer was a crash-induced 38th in the most recent effort at Kansas Speedway.

Brad Keselowski closed a substantial gap in the closing laps, by was unable to get all the way to the front and finished second in the Goody's Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway.

Keselowski charged through the field. He restarted eighth after the final caution flag, ran down the Joe Gibbs Racing contingent, and picked them off one at a time. Keselowski was the only non-Chase contender who finished in the top five.

Brad Keselowski has scored top-10s in his last two spring Martinsville Speedway races, but he has fallen into the 30s in his last two fall efforts.

Both of his poor results in the past two fall races came as the result of crash damage after he raced with the leaders for much of the afternoon. So long as he stays out of trouble, he should be able to break that pattern and he will challenge for a top-five.

Brad Keselowski’s engine overheated in the Hellmann's 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway and blew, which sent him to the garage in 38th.

Along with last week’s accident at Kansas Speedway, Keselowski dropped to 12th in the standings. The tragedy was that he appeared to have both the best car and greatest ability to protect his lead. Trash on the grill caused him to overheat. Keselowski did almost everything he could, but may have waited just a lap too long to try and get behind another competitor to create a vacuum that would allow it to drop off.

Brad Keselowski posted the slowest 10-lap average among Chase contenders in the first practice session for the Hellmann's 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway.

Keselowski’s 188.422 mph made him the slowest driver among the playoff contenders and was third-worst overall. He was joined at the back by Jamie McMurray, Chris Buescher, and fellow Chaser Austin Dillon.

Brad Keselowski has won the last two plate races at Talladega SuperSpeedway in May and Daytona International Speedway in July.

Those were Keselowski’s 19th and 20th career wins. He started up front in both of those events, and while plate races are topsy-turvy affairs that see drivers in the front and back at various stages of competition, this suggests he had a strong motor. Winning three in a row on a plate track is difficult, but not impossible.

Brad Keselowski tried to pull a slide job on Denny Hamlin on lap 191 of the Hollywood Casino 400 and was spun into the infield grass causing enough damage so that he finished 38th—the worst among the Chase contenders.

With Harvick’s win, this is critical because it moves the bubble. Eighth-place points in the standings are shared by Joey Logano and Austin Dillon. Keselowski is seven points behind them with Hamlin wedged between. There is now a race within the Alabama 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway between these four drivers and potentially Chase Elliott in 12th. Even without further carnage next week, at least one of these drivers will advance to the next round of the Chase.

Brad Keselowski posted the slowest time among Chase contenders in the first practice session for the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway with a lap of 190.168 mph.

That was .646 second slower than the leader Kyle Busch, but it is likely he was working primarily on race trim. Weather has plagued the playoffs so far and is in the area once again. If Keselowski qualifies among the top 12, do not give any credence whatsoever to this speed.
