Brad Keselowski celebrates in Victory Lane.

Brad Keselowski celebrates in Victory Lane.

August 29, 2011 , Auburn Hills, Mich. – This Week in Motorsports is a video recap of weekend motorsports events in NASCAR, the Nationwide series and other competitions under the Chrysler Group LLC banner. This week, Penske Racing‘s Brad Keselowski roared to victory in Saturday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Bristol Motor Speedway.

August 28, 2011 , BRISTOL, Tenn. – It’s not open for debate. It’s a fact. Brad Keselowski is the hottest driver in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. Not co-point leaders Kyle Busch and Jimmie Johnson. Keselowski has sole possession of the honor.

Add in the entire No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger team from Penske Racing. The race cars have been fast and durable. The pit calls have continually improved the performance throughout the race. The pit stops have been flawless.

The proof is in the results. Keselowski recorded his second win in the last four races and fourth consecutive top-three finish with his victory Saturday night in the Irwin Tools Night Race at one of the toughest track in motorsports, Bristol Motor Speedway.

Keselowski led the final 80 laps in the 500-lap event on the .533-mile, high-banked track. He grabbed the lead from Martin Truex Jr. on the restart following the sixth caution and wasn’t threatened the rest of the way.

“This is a race of champions. I can’t believe it,” Keselowski said. “There are races that pay more money and races with more prestige, but this is the coolest damn one of them all.”

Keselowski jumped to 11th in the season point standings, just 21 out of 10th. His sights are set on one of the automatic berths in the Chase that goes to the top-10 in the point standings after the 26th race at Richmond. Even if he doesn’t make it into the top 10, he has three wins and a near lock for one of the two wild card berths in the Chase as long as he remains in the top 20 in the standings.
