Found October 12, 2013 on
The 2013 season has not been kind to 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion Brad Keselowski. Bad luck has followed the No. 2 car from track to track this season. Keselowski did not qualify for the Chase, NASCAR’s version of a postseason, and thus far has not found victory lane in the Cup Series this year. During Saturday’s running of the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway the 29-year-old Keselowski left his pit stall with a jack. The jack lasted a full lap around the 1.5-mile track. Once arriving back in the pits, Keselowski was ready to go and left before being called back by his crew for additional service.

There is always one race in the Chase where a non-championship contender sneaks up and grabs the victory. Charlotte has shown to be a track where this feat can easily be accomplished. Brad Keselowski was the driver to pull it off this season when he pulled into victory lane Saturday[...]

Well it has taken almost the entire season, 31 races in fact, for our defending NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion to find his way back to Victory Lane. At the end of the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, there was Brad Keselowski celebrating in Victory Lane. I guess the old cliche of "better late than never" really fits in this scenario.
