Keselowski adds another win to Penske’s legacy at IMS

SPEEDWAY — Penske Racing is an organization that has seen victory lane 15 times at the Indianapolis 500 and now team owner Roger Penske can put a stock car feather in his cap.

Brad Keselowski led the last 12 laps en route to the inaugural victory in the NASCAR Nationwide Series’ Indiana 250, giving Penske his first stock car victory at the historical Indianapolis Motor Speedway and 100th victory overall in NASCAR racing.

“I’ve been watching races here since I was a kid in Michigan,” said Keselowski, a native of Rochester Hills, Mich. “Everybody knows how special Indy is and any win that you can have here, whether it’s the (Indy) 500 or the Brickyard here tomorrow, the first Nationwide race, every race is special. I’m just glad to do it for Roger (Penske).”

The driver of the No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge appreciated the prestige that comes with winning at Indianapolis.

“Just a special day, the Brickyard means so much to all of us race car drivers and to the sport,“ Keselowski said. “It’s a special place to race, I’m glad to be some small part of that with winning the inaugural Nationwide race here and I hope I can be a big part of that history by being able to win tomorrow and pull off that double. That would be extremely special to me.”

Keselowski etched his name in the history books last season by winning the final Nationwide race at Lucas Oil Raceway and added another accolade to his young career, the first Nationwide Series winner at the Brickyard.

Sam Hornish Jr. finished second; helping give Penske Racing it’s third ever 1-2 finish in the Nationwide Series.

“To be able to come out of here with a 1-2 for Penske Racing is great,” Hornish Jr. said. “Wish the ‘Captain’ was here to enjoy it with us but the guys at Penske Racing did a wonderful job. They brought two new cars here for Brad and I and put a lot of work into this race.”
