PLAYERS: Brad Keselowski

BRISTOL, Tenn. – Brad Keselowski and the No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger team will start second in the Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway on Saturday night after rain canceled the Friday evening qualifying session. Sam Hornish Jr. will roll off from the 30th position in the No. 22 Shell/Pennzoil Dodge.

“You know Bristol is always about track position but I have had cars here in the past where you could pass and get your way up to the front,” said Keselowski. “I’m not going to complain either way (smiles). I’m just happy to have a fast race car and I think the Miller Lite Dodge is another fast race car coming to Bristol.”

The Irwin Tools Night Race will air live at 7:00 p.m. ET on ABC on Saturday evening. Race coverage will also be broadcast live on PRN Radio and Sirius Satellite Radio Channel 90.
