SUPER START: Brad Keselowski is the only NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver to start the season with four top-five finishes in the first four races. The last driver to start the year with five-consecutive top-five finishes also drove the “Blue Deuce.” Rusty Wallace accomplished the feat in 1998. POINTS LEADER: Thanks to his consistent start to the season, Keselowski has taken command the points lead for the first time since leaving Homestead-Miami Speedway last November with the 2012 series championship. HOLLYWOOD: Prior to this weekend’s race in the Inland Empire area of California, Keselowski will take part in a media tour of L.A., highlighted by an appearance on the hit TV show “American Idol” and a trip to see the Los Angeles Clippers/Philadelphia 76ers game on Wednesday night. SPEED IS KING: Keselowski ranks first in two NASCAR Loop Data categories that are key to producing fast laps – Fastest Driver on Restarts and Fastest Driver Late In A Run. He also has the second-most number of Fastest Laps Run so far this season.  BRAD KESELOWSKI, NO. 2 MILLER LITE FORD WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON AUTO CLUB SPEEDWAY? “We’ve run really well with the Nationwide car at Auto Club Speedway over the last couple of years. We don’t yet have a win to show for it, but it gives me a boost of confidence because Fontana has been one of the tougher tracks for me over the years. I’m really looking forward to going back this weekend and having a solid race with the Miller Lite Ford.” PAUL WOLFE, CREW CHIEF OF THE NO. 2 MILLER LITE FORD WHAT IS THE KEY TO RUNNING WELL AT AUTO CLUB SPEEDWAY? “The key to victory at Auto Club Speedway is having a car with great balance. The track is known for long green flag runs and the car tends to get looser the longer you run. It’s a delicate balance because you have to be loose to start a run. A tight racecar is no good either but the driver has to be able to hold on to it. That is a very fine line. With the new car you always have to expect the unexpected, but we’ve had a good start to the season and I expect that to continue this weekend.”
