Brad Keselowski Wins NASCAR Race At Bristol
After winning the Food City 500 at the Bristol Motor Speedway NASCAR's social media monster Brad Keselowski took to his twitter account to share his win with his tweeter followers. He twitted a serious of pictures of his car and himself during the event. Last night, Keselwski proved to the rest of us that he is not just a master of the hash-tag but also the ultimate winner at the Food City 500. Keselowski led 232 laps, by far the most of his Sprint Cup career, en route to driving the # 2 Miller Lite Car to his second straight Bristol victory. And he got to make what he called "my favorite turn in racing," the turn onto Bristol's rooftop victory lane. This was Keselowski's second consecutive win at the half-mile short track and the fifth of his Sprint Cup career.
This was almost a victory that never happened, Keselowski faced challenges all day long but the biggest one came on lap 23 as he narrowly escaped getting caught up in what ended up being a five-car pileup involving Kasey Kahne, Carl Edwards, Marcos Ambrose, Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick. An inch or two another direction and Keselowski wouldn't have had the chance to win today
"We definitely dodged a bullet there, that's for sure. I have to thank my team for that," Keselowski said.
After the Food City 500 race there is a change in the top 5 in the NASCAR standings, the top spot still belongs to Greg Biffle who leads Harvick by 9 points with Matt Kenseth, Martin Truex Jr. and Denny Hamlin rounding out the top 5.
Next week the Sprint Cup NASCAR series move to the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California for the Auto Club 400. And in case you are wondering Keselowski gained another 50,000 plus twitter followers after his victory and is now over 250,000 followers. iIf you would like to follow him you can at @keselowski.
