Brad Keselowski sustained damage in the same lap-372 accident that sidelined Kurt Busch, but he was able to coax his car to the end of the Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway. He finished 33rd 42 laps off the pace, but was running at the end of his 58th-consecutive race—making him the new league leader.
Keselowski had been running on the lead lap of 15 consecutive races and that streak ended. The new leader in that regard is Jeff Gordon, but it was announced this week he will not race at Michigan International Speedway regardless of Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s health. Aug 21 - 10:13 PM

Brad Keselowski has scored the best average finish through 22 races of 2016 with a 9.23. He has been consistent, in fact with an average start of 9.82.

Keselowski’s average was helped immensely by a streak of eight consecutive oval track top-10s from Talladega SuperSpeedway through Kentucky Speedway. Notably this streak was bookended by victories.

Brad Keselowski committed to an aggressive line on the final turn of the last lap of the Cheez-it 355 at the Glen that got him into the right quarter panel of Martin Truex Jr. The No. 78 spun and lost six positions. Keselowski’s lost momentum cost him the one position he was after and he finished third.

Keselowski thought he would have the momentum to catch Hamlin and did everything in his power to get the win. With three bonus points on the line for victories, this is a consequence of NASCAR’s points’ system.

Brad Keselowski posted the quickest 10-lap average in Friday’s first practice session for the Cheez-it 355 at the Glen. He was one of only three drivers to go that far, however.

Getting long runs allow drivers to develop some momentum, so this helps move Kez up the handicap order slightly. He should contend for a result on the cusp of 10th or in the low-teens.

Brad Keselowski finished second in the Pennsylvania 400 at Pocono Raceway, which is his sixth top-five in the past eight races. His solid run was important, however, because it comes on the heels of two results in the mid-teens on the flat tracks of New Hampshire Motor Speedway and Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Keselowski almost had the right strategy and a strong car. He pitted earlier than any of the other traditionally strong cars. The series now heads to a track on which Brad has three runner-up finishes, but no wins. His momentum will make him a solid pick this week.

In a test earlier this week, Brad Keselowski apparently lost his brakes on the frontstretch at Watkins Glen International and slammed the wall hard. He destroyed his car and raised concerns about the safety of this corner during his weekly media availability.

Keselowski has run incredibly well at the Glen in the past, but has not yet visited Victory Lane. He has three straight second-place finishes to his credit and was looking for that little something extra to get that one spot. Last year, he finished seventh in the Cheez-it 355 at the Glen

Joey Logano and teammate Brad Keselowski gambled on a race strategy no one else employed, but it did not pay off in a win. Logano challenged for the top spot, but got dropped out of the top five late in the going and finished seventh. Keselowski was involved in an accident in the closing laps and finished 17th.

The Penske pals stretched their fuel mileage early in the Crown Royal Combat Wounded Coalition 400 at the Brickyard, but once the race experienced several cautions at the end Logano and Keselowski were forced to race for the win on the strength of their engine and race setup. Logano pushed hard on a late restart and got out of the groove—dropping from second to seventh as a result. Keselowski was in the wrong place at the wrong time. This organization has little to lose by gambling and that has marked their past few attempts.

Brad Keselowski stretched his fuel better than every other driver to win the Quaker State 400 by Advance Auto Parts at Kentucky Speedway. He bobbled on the last lap, but had just enough gas to get to the finish line 0.175 seconds ahead of Carl Edwards.

Keselowski had to be pushed back to pit road by a tow truck, but a win is a win. Keselowski is already locked into the Chase, so there was no reason to play safe. This puts Keselowski in the lead in terms of Chase ranking with a fourth victory and gives him his third Kentucky win in six races.

Brad Keselowski made one lap on the newly repaved and reconfigured Kentucky Speedway when he brought out the first caution. He slipped out of the groove in turn four and barely scraped the wall.

Repaved tracks have narrow grooves. Early practice times will not necessarily be predictive of how drivers will run in race trim. Keselowski did not damage his Ford and will not need a backup.

Brad Keselowski led 115 of the 160 laps that make up the Coke Zero 400 to score his first Daytona International Speedway victory. He beat Kyle Busch by 0.159 seconds.

Keselowski’s previous best finish was a third in the 2014 Daytona 500. This was his second plate win this year after taking the checkers first in the Geico 500.

Sprint Cup driver Brad Keselowski had the best 10-lap consecutive average speed in the XFINITY Series final practice for the American Ethanol E15 250 at Iowa Speedway.

The average speed of 130.470 mph in the #22 Discount Tire Ford Mustang was best of the 13 cars that ran at least 10 consecutive laps on the track for this final practice session. #19 Daniel Suarez, #3 Ty Dillon, #20 Erik Jones and #2 Ben Kennedy are the rest of the top five on this list.

Brad Keselowski finished fourth in the FireKeepers Casino 400 at Michigan International Speedway, but he was disappointed after failing to pass his teammate Joey Logano for the lead late in the race.

When Keselowski takes a minute to look at the big picture, he will realize this should be considered a success. He stretched his fuel in the opening segment and ran out of gas while leading. If not for a caution that waved for a Martin Truex Jr. spin while he was limping back to the pits, he might have stalled on the track and lost several laps.

Brad Keselowski, Martin Truex Jr., Clint Bowyer, and Michael Annett were late to the first qualification session after their cars had difficulty passing inspection at Michigan International Speedway for the Firekeepers Casino 400.

NASCAR delayed qualification because it took a while to clear the field with the new aerodynamic package, but when these cars failed inspection they were sent to the back of the line. Keselowski and Biffle cleared about three minutes into the first session, but they were rushed to the line.

Brad Keselowski was one of the few drivers who did not have to worry about fuel mileage in the Axalta We Paint Winners 400 at Pocono Raceway. He got hung up behind rookie Chase Elliott for most of the final run, however, and could not catch the leaders. Keselowski finished third after starting the day on the pole.

Keselowski also had to overcome a penalty by NASCAR early in the race when one of his crew members hip-checked the right side of his car. Keselowski was under close scrutiny on pit road following the race, so fantasy owners should watch to see if penalties are forthcoming.

Weather has postponed the Axalta We Paint Winners 400 at Pocono Raceway tom Monday. It will be run at noon eastern time. When the drivers finally get on track, they will be led to the green by Brad Keselowski.

Drivers will face a green track and need to make major adjustments during the race. Communication will be a key component in success, which is going to favor the marquee teams that have been scoring top-10s all season.
