TEXAS FIRSTS: Keselowski made his first Cup Series start at Texas Motor Speedway (TMS) in November of 2008. After starting the race from the 37th position, the then 24-year-old Keselowski raced his way to a respectable 19th-place finishing position. In November of the following year, Keselowski made his first NASCAR start with Penske Racing at TMS, as he finished 35th in that race. Additionally, in the 2011 spring race at TMS, Keselowski led 32 laps – his first laps led at the track – before finishing 18th. A MOMENT IN TIME: In the last race at TMS, Keselowski provided NASCAR fans with one of the most memorable moments from the 2012 Chase for the Championship as he and Jimmie Johnson traded paint down the front stretch in a classic, late-race battle. CRAZY EIGHTS: Keselowski has qualified eighth for the last three Sprint Cup Series races at TMS. MILLER LITE AND COWBOYS CHEERLEADERS: Keselowski will enjoy one of the true benefits of having a sponsor relationship with Miller Lite as he will sign autographs for MillerCoors employees at the Fort Worth brewery with members of the famed Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders. WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON RACING AT TEXAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY? “With the way we ran at Las Vegas and Auto Club, I’m cautiously-optimistic about our chances this weekend at Texas. The asphalt has aged and is very bumpy – like Vegas – but Texas is a completely different animal. That’s one of the reasons why we decided to roll out a brand-new chassis this weekend. I thought we started figuring Texas out last year, so we’ll see if what we learned will translate to the new car. Obviously we started the season well and I don’t see a reason we won’t have speed in the Miller Lite Ford on Saturday.” DO YOU LIKE SATURDAY NIGHT RACING? “I love the way NASCAR mixes in some races on Saturday nights throughout the season. The electricity around the sport just seems to ramp up when you are racing under the lights. It reminds me of my days back at Auto City Speedway and Dixie Speedway in Michigan. And we all enjoy having a Sunday off every now and then.”
