Keselowski After Second Victory Of Season, First At Michigan
Brad Keselowski (No. 2 Miller Lite Ford) is teed up for a victory in the Quicken Loans 400 in several ways.
He’s back in his home state. Keselowski is from Rochester Hills, approximately 90 miles from MIS, which is located in Brooklyn.
He’s coming two consecutive runner-up finishes, at Dover and Pocono.
Although he has two NASCAR Nationwide Series victories at MIS, Keselowski has not won there in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.
Winning would be a great thing to celebrate with car owner Roger Penske, who used to own MIS.
And last but certainly not least … winning would be a great way to celebrate Father’s Day with his dad, Bob, a former driver and team owner.
“When I think about racing, and people ask me this question a lot, how I got into racing, and the simple answer is my family,” Keselowski said. “I think if you look through a lot of those that are in the sport, at least at a competitor level, there’s some family traditions that involve racing and a lot of them are based around dads. That makes Father’s Day, I think, uniquely special to motorsports, but it’s special to the whole sports world in that sense, and it’s something that I’m very proud of with the relationship I have with my dad, how he got me started in racing, and I know it makes a win or any achievement you have even more special to win on that day.
“Hopefully we can pull that off.”
