Well folks, I was sitting and listening to some interviews today and people were talking about Brad Keselowski becoming a Sprint Cup champion and what impact, what influence that would have on him and his personality.
As you know, he pretty much speaks his mind; he tells it like it is, he does things his way. That's what makes him who he is. I've heard him say, and I just read where he said, he had to be true to himself.
Most people are hoping that becoming champion won't change him.
I had to chuckle when I read that because I remember when I became champion most people were hoping it would change me. And quite honestly for the better, and it did.
I was brash, outspoken, cocky, arrogant but confident. Very confident. When you put ignorance and confidence together, you can accomplish great things. I think that's really where I was at the time, back in 1981.
I was so blessed, I was so fortunate, just like Brad is. I had a great car owner. I drove for Hall of Famer...
