This preview takes a look at Penske Racing driver Brad Keselowski. Keselowski will be piloting the #22 Discount Tire Dodge in Saturday’s History 300 from the Charlotte Motor Speedway. 

• This Week’s Challenger… Brad Keselowski and the Penske Racing Discount Tire Dodge Challenger team will use chassis PRS-228 during Saturday’s History 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Keselowski drove this chassis to a 35th-place finish at Texas Motor Speedway in April.

• The No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge Challenger in 2012… Following 10 points-paying events, the No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge team sits eighth in the NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) owner point standings following an eighth-place finish last weekend at Iowa Speedway with driver Parker Kligerman.

• Keselowski Climbing the Charts… By taking the checkered flag in the 2011 season-finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway, Keselowski claimed sole possession of 15th place on the NNS all-time wins list with 17 victories. Keselowski is now three wins away from tying Greg Biffle for 14th place on the all-time list. He is also a former series winner at CMS.

• NASCAR Unites… This weekend, Keselowski will debut his first special paint scheme as driver of the No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge. The specially-designed scheme is in support of NASCAR’s “NASCAR Unites – An American Salute” program, a platform uniting the NASCAR industry this summer to enhance the lives of U.S. military families. This new design will also hit the track at Daytona International Speedway in July.

• Pick 22 To Win… Discount Tire, America’s largest tire and wheel retailer, and NASCAR champion driver Brad Keselowski, are providing an exciting way for race fans to follow the action and win great prizes with the Pick 22 to Win online sweepstakes. At pick22towin.com fans select where Keselowski and his No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge Challenger will finish in a designated Nationwide Series race.

• Keselowski Meets Pastrana… Keselowski will make an appearance with fellow Discount Tire racing family member, Travis Pastrana, at Dave & Busters located at 8361 Concord Mills Blvd in Concord, N.C. at 3:45 pm on Friday, May 25th.

Brad Keselowski on Charlotte: “Our mile-and-a-half program has been really strong ever since I came to Penske Racing. It has been a cornerstone to the success we have enjoyed over the last two plus years and I see no reason that it won’t continue. You always want to run well at Charlotte. You’re racing in front of family and friends, and it’s all about bragging rights for this race. Our Discount Tire Dodge was really fast at Las Vegas and Texas, but we didn’t get the finishes we deserved. If we can show the same kind of speed this weekend, I’m confident we can find ourselves in Victory Lane at Charlotte again.”

Crew chief Jeremy Bullins on Charlotte: “The 22 Discount Tire Dodge team is excited about going to Charlotte this week and building on Brad’s strong performance in last weekend’s All Star race. We’ve been building momentum all year and I feel like we are doing the things we need to do to win. It’s time to put it all together. This weekend would be a great time to get our first win of the season so Brad can fly the American flag and salute those we remember this Memorial Day weekend. Our Discount Tire Dodge has a patriotic look this week and it’s ready to go to the front.”
