CONCORD, NC - MAY 29: Brad Keselowski, driver of the #22 Discount Tire Dodge, stands on the grid during qualifying for the NASCAR Nationwide Series Tech-Net Auto Service 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway on May 29, 2010 in Concord, North Carolina. (Photo by Jason Smith/Getty Images for NASCAR)
AT HOME ON THE RANGE: Prior to the last NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) race at Texas Motor Speedway, Keselowski had finished inside the top-five in six-consecutive races at the 1.5-mile oval. He will be looking for his first win there on Friday night. THE SPEED IS THERE: Keselowski has led laps in each of his NNS starts this season. Unfortunately he has not found the good fortune necessary to put together the consistency he has been known for in this series. 20 AND COUNTING: Keselowski’s 20 career NASCAR Nationwide Series victories place him tied with Greg Biffle for 14th-place on the all-time wins list. MAKING AN APPEARANCE: Keselowski will make an appearance at the Discount Tire store located at 2505 West Interstate 20 in Grand Prairie, Texas at 3 pm on Wednesday, April 10. WHAT IS A LAP AT TEXAS LIKE IN A NATIONWIDE SERIES CAR? “Texas is an extremely fast track in a Nationwide Series car. It actually feels faster than a Cup car. You enter Turn 1 at around 190-195 mph, depending on whether you are in race trim or qualifying trim. If your car is handling the way it needs to, you’ll go through that corner without lifting, or barely lifting, out of the throttle. You’re on the edge the entire lap and if you don’t hit your marks you can easily end up in the wall.” – Brad Keselowski WHAT MEMORIES DO YOU HAVE OF CLINCHING YOUR 2010 NATIONWIDE SERIES TITLE AT TEXAS? “The biggest thing I remember is after the race everyone putting on their cowboy hats. That was a cool photo. Honestly it was the faces of Roger (Penske) and Walt (Czarnecki), who had been around motorsports for years without a NASCAR title. That was a big moment in the history of our company. It gave us a lot of confidence – Paul Wolfe and I – that we could race with anyone.” – Brad Keselowski WHAT IS THE KEY TO RUNNING WELL AT TEXAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY? “By far, the most important thing to work on when going to Texas is making sure you get over the bumps in Turn 1 without upsetting the car. It is one of the fastest corners we see all year and it doesn’t take much to get out of shape. If you can get through that corner and keep the car turning, the rest of the lap should be pretty fast – Crew chief Jeremy Bullins
