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. Oct 23 - 10:57 PM

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.
Oct 16 - 9:25 PM

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.

Brad Keselowski finished seventh in the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway after starting 20th. It was his seventh consecutive top-10 this season.

Kez failed to extend a four-race streak of top-fives. Consistency could yet be critical in the second round of the Chase with so many playoff contenders experiencing trouble this week. Kansas Speedway is similar to Charlotte, and Keselowski is one driver who often has success at Talladega SuperSpeedway.

Brad Keselowski held a steady wheel at Dover International Speedway and finished the Citizen Soldier 400 solidly in fourth.

This is Keselowski’s fifth top-five in the past six races and gives him a six-race average finish of 4.8 in the Cup series. Martin Truex Jr. has been flashier, but Kez has shown as much strength and consistency. Barring accidents or mistakes, the championship could come down to these two.
Oct 2 - 6:00 PM

Rain canceled qualification for the Citizen Soldier 400 and the roster will be set by owner points. That puts Brad Keselowski on the pole as the points’ leader.

All 16 Chase drivers will lineup at the front of the pack for the second time in three races. It minimizes their chance of getting into an accident for those who might start deep in the field, but it also removes one key factor from the fantasy player’s handicap formula.
Sep 30 - 4:46 PM

Brad Keselowski posted a fourth-place finish in the Bad Boy Off Road 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway to give him a 35-point cushion over the bubble. All he needs at Dover International Speedway is to stay out of trouble and he will advance to round two of the Chase.

This is Keselowski’s sixth top-five in the past eight races. He also has a ninth in that span of events and the only time he failed to finish in the top-10 was at Bristol Motor Speedway when he suffered crash damage. Keselowski will stay out of trouble at Dover and will be one of the top fantasy values.
Sep 25 - 6:17 PM

Brad Keselowski posted a fastest lap of 131.049 mph in the second practice session for the Bad Boy Off Road 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

That was only 18th on the speed chart, but more importantly he was the fourth-slowest Chaser. He will roll off the grid 11th, which puts him in heavy traffic to start.

Brad Keselowski finished 5th in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 400 at Chicagoland Speedway to maintain his second seeding in the points’ standings.

Keselowski is only one point behind leader Martin Truex Jr., but he does not have the Chicagoland victory that represents an automatic advance to round two. This result gives him a 22-point advantage over 13th in the points, so all he needs to do to advance is avoid catastrophe at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and Dover International Speedway.
Sep 18 - 7:06 PM

Brad Keselowski posted the slowest single lap in Saturday morning’s practice session for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 400 at Chicagoland Speedway with a speed of 182.346 mph.

Keselowski was fourth-fastest in Friday’s practice, however, so it is likely that he was working on something experimental. This slow speed should not impact his handicap one way or another.
Sep 17 - 11:33 AM

Brad Keselowski survived contact with Matt Kenseth late in the Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond International Raceway to finish fourth. He was part of a sweep of the top five by Chase contending drivers.

Keselowski has four wins on the season and is seeded first along with Kyle Busch. Keselowski has four top-10s in the last six races this season and enters the championship with a lot of momentum. The only race in that span when he failed to finish in the top 10 was because of an accident at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Brad Keselowski started the Bojangles' Southern 500 on the outside pole and was expected to contend for the victory. Loose wheels on two occasions cost him track position, however, and he was able to salvage only a ninth-place result.

Keselowski was a good value, but his salary cap prohibited his being a must-have on most rosters. Along with his Penske Racing teammate Joey Logano who finished fifth, the organization swept the top 10.
Sep 5 - 12:09 AM

Brad Keselowski posted the fastest single lap of practice for the Bojangles' Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway. His fastest lap was 174.649 mph.

This was a much better outing than Keselowski experienced in the first session. He sustained a fairly heavy Darlington Stripe in that session, but the team pounded out the car and found speed. Keselowski will start on the outside pole as this week’s lineup was set by points.
