PLAYERS: Brad Keselowski
We suppose he’s drinking Miller Lite? Brad Keselowski had every reason to be excited on Sunday. Keselowski beat out five-time champion Jimmie Johnson to capture not only his first Sprint Cup championship, but the first one for Penske Racing, as well.

Well, at least he waited until after the race. Check out Keselowski in some state of inebriation below. Thumbnail via screenshot/YouTube
