Keselowski Ready for "The Beast of the Southeast"
NASCAR Busch Series Rookie Brad Keselowski, driver of the No. 23 MACtac® Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS, is anxiously awaiting another stab at 'The Beast" this weekend. Keselowski is looking to improve upon his first Busch Series run at Lowe's Motor Speedway in 2006 with a shot at the leader board for his team on Saturday, May 26.
"Last year we ran well at Charlotte, but got tangled in another driver's wreck, destroying our car," Keselowski said. "I'm really looking forward to getting back on this track and am expecting a strong finish. I will be racing my favorite car - we ran this car in Atlanta and it performed very well."
It's no secret that Lowe's Motor Speedway is a very challenging track. Keselowski said that even with the recent repaving of the track, it still has a lot of character. He feels the key to a successful race at Charlotte will be locking down the tire combination and monitoring the temperature, as a slight temperature change can result in major speed and handling alterations.
Although NASCAR Busch Series took a week off between Darlington and Charlotte, Keselowski did not. Keselowski and his team traveled to the ACRA RE/MAX Series race in Toledo to watch his brother, Brian Keselowski, run with his team.
"It was nice to attend the ACRA race and support Brian, but now I'm preparing for Saturday," Keselowski said. "Our team has been working really hard and with great support from them and our sponsor, MACtac, we will be a tough team to beat."
Keith Coleman Racing is in its fourth year in the NASCAR Busch Series. Owner Keith Coleman, driver Brad Keselowski, and the entire No. 23 team represent the highest standards, values, and efforts as athletes and competitors.
