Brad Keselowski was in a must win situation entering the Geico 500 and he survived two green-white-checkered attempts to take the checkers first and advance to the Eliminator round. He led only 12 laps total.
Keselowski also survived minor crash damage in the early stages of the race. He was an early favorite to advance to the championship race at Homestead, but back-to-back bad finishes at Kansas and Charlotte put that in jeopardy. Now the points reset and he has an equal opportunity to win the Chase as any of the other seven drivers. Oct 19 - 5:43 PM

A bad restart with two laps remaining dropped Brad Keselowski from fifth to 16th in the Bank of America 500. Each position is a point in the NASCAR standings, so Keselowski also lost 16 markers in the championship hunt, may have lost his chance to advance to the Eliminator round, and certainly misplaced a little of his sanity.

On that restart, Keselowski got hung up behind Denny Hamlin. The two made contact with Hamlin surviving to finish ninth and Keselowski finishing 16th. Hamlin brake-checked Keselowski on the cool down lap and the ripple effect involved those two drivers, plus Matt Kenseth and Tony Stewart in one continuous incident on pit road and the in the garage. The bottom line is that Keselowski is in a desperate situation heading into the wild card Geico 500 at Talladega and that makes him a questionable value next week.

In a scene that would make any professional wrestling organization proud, Brad Keselowski, Denny Hamlin, and Matt Kenseth exchanged verbal and physical barbs on pit row and in the garage at the end of the Bank of America 500.

Unhappy with how he was raced in the closing laps, Hamlin brake checked Keselowski on the misnamed "cool down lap." Keselowski retaliated by attempting to spin Hamlin, and then rammed Kenseth on pit road. That made Kenseth unhappy because had already removed his Hans device and seat belts, so Kenseth caught up with Keselowski beside his hauler and tried to tackle the Young Gun. NASCAR has told all three racers to not let this incident boil over into future races, but Hamlin’s final statement to the press was, "what goes around comes around." Fantasy owners need to be aware, this is not over.

Sprint Cup regular (No. 2 Ford Fusion) Brad Keselowski wins the Drive for the Cure 300 Presented by Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina, his 31st victory in 214 NASCAR Nationwide Series races.

With the victory, Keselowski ties NASCAR Hall of Famer Jack Ingram for fifth on the all-time NASCAR Nationwide Series wins list. This is the No. 22 Discount Tire Ford Mustang driver's fourth victory and ninth top-five finish in nine starts in 2014. His average finish this season is 1.9. It is Keselowski's third victory and 11th top-10 finish in 15 Nationwide Series races at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Besides driving the No. 2 Ford Fusion in Sprint Cup competition, Brad Keselowski will pilot the No. 22 Ford Mustang in the Nationwide Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

He has not finished outside the top-four in any of his eight 2014 NNS starts. His season to date includes seven top-three finishes as well as three victories. These remarkable stats all add up to a 2.0-average finish so far this year. In his eight starts to date this year, Keselowski has earned four poles and has started on the front row seven times, equaling an impressive starting average of 3.4. In his 14 NNS starts at Charlotte, Keselowski has earned two victories, five top-five and 10 top-10 finishes.-Team Penske

One blown tire could be all that is needed to drop Brad Keselowski out of the championship race unless he wins at Charlotte next week. He was running in the top five on lap 161 when he blew a tire and slammed the wall.

Keselowski joined Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the bad luck club and fell below the elimination bubble. Under normal circumstances, he might have two races to make up the deficit, but Talladega is unpredictable and he cannot afford to enter that event without some kind of cushion.

Brad Keselowski has won two of the last three races on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks and he did so with conviction. His victory at Kentucky came after he led 199 of 267 laps; his Chicagoland win came after he made a bold three-wide pass through the middle of the battling Kevin Harvick and Kyle Larson.

At Chicagoland, Keselowski proved he would put his car at risk to win if necessary and that may be what it takes to capture the trophy this week and lock himself into the Eliminator round.

Brad Keselowski finished second in the AAA 400 at Dover, but he logged the best average running position along the way with a 1.93.

Keselowski, the AAA 400 winner Jeff Gordon, Joey Logano, and Kevin Harvick continue to be the best values on a weekly basis. NASCAR heads to back-to-back similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks, so this trend will probably continue for at least two more weeks.
Sep 28 - 8:29 PM

Three of Brad Keselowski’s last four efforts at Dover ended in top-five finishes, including a victory in the fall 2012 AAA 400.

Keselowski’s victory in 2012 was partially aided by fuel mileage, but he also has a second-place finish this spring to recommend him. The only time he struggled in the past four races was when he developed a drivetrain fluid leak last fall and spent an extended time in the garage.

Brad Keselowski spun while trying to pass Matt Kenseth on lap 195. He damaged his Ford, but was able to use a rash of cautions in the closing laps to make repairs and climb back into contention. He finished seventh at New Hampshire.

Keselowski was challenging for the lead at the end of the Sylvania 300, but got shuffled backward a little during the final restart. His mixture of a willingness to take chances and speed made him a good value this week, but there is a possibility that he could lose the gamble next week as easily as succeed.

Brad Keselowski posted the second-fastest single lap and had the third-quickest, 10-lap average in final practice for the Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Along with Kevin Harvick and Jeff Gordon, Keselowski showed the best balance of speed and durability. Rolling off from the pole and with the fastest single lap in the morning session, Kez has to be viewed as the favorite to dominate and win on Sunday.

Brad Keselowski’s perfect weekend continued through New Hampshire’s Saturday morning session. He posted a lap of 135.622 mph, which was 14/100ths of a second faster than second-place Ryan Newman.

With the exception of qualifying seventh this summer in the Camping World RV Sales 301, this is the same type of performance he showed earlier in the year. He dominated that race and appears to be poised to do so again.

Brad Keselowski set a new track record at New Hampshire Motor Speedway with a lap of 140.598 mph to grab the pole for the Sylvania 300. It is his fifth pole of the season and the eighth of his career.

Keselowski’s two most recent poles came at Kentucky and Richmond. He dominated both of those races and won. He started seventh in this summer’s Camping World RV Sales 301, but did not take long to get to the front to dominate and win that event as well.

Brad Keselowski posted the fastest single lap in the first practice session for the Sylvania 300. He ended the day with a top speed of 138.421 mph.

Keselowski worked on qualification trim throughout the session because starting position is so important on this track. His victory here in July came from the seventh-place spot on the grid; his victory on another short, flat track in Richmond two weeks ago came after he won the pole.
