FORMER WINNER: In one of his most-dominating NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) wins, Keselowski led 189 of 252 laps on the way to his eighth career victory – and his second as a Penske Racing driver – in the 2010 edition of this race. The laps led total is the most laps Keselowski has led in a race in his NNS career. HANDING OVER THE REINS: This weekend’s race at Richmond International Raceway will be Keselowski’s final NNS event until the June 28th event at Kentucky Speedway. Joey Logano – a winner of 18 career NNS races – will make his debut in the No. 22 Discount Tire Ford Mustang next weekend at Talladega Superspeedway 20 AND COUNTING: Keselowski’s 20 career NASCAR Nationwide Series victories place him tied with Greg Biffle for 14th-place on the all-time wins list. WHY DO YOU ENJOY RACING AT RICHMOND? “I feel as though I have a good understanding of what I need to run well at Richmond and that makes it easy to communicate that to my crew chief and team. As a result, we’ve been able to put together some good finishes at Richmond. To me, it’s the ultimate short track. There is a reason that most drivers put it right at the top of their list of favorite tracks. It’s night racing, under the lights, which is similar to what most of us grew up doing. You can run side-by-side and rub fenders and do all of the things that the fans want to see. It’s just an exciting racetrack and I feel like we can put the Discount Tire Ford Mustang in Victory Lane this weekend.” – Brad Keselowski  HOW MUCH HAVE YOU FOCUSED ON THIS WEEKEND’S RACE? “We have put a lot of effort into improving our performance at Richmond since we left there last year. The performance of this team there last year is not indicative of what we can do. NASCAR has given us an extra practice to get the Discount Tire Ford dialed in, which we will take advantage of. We need a win and I’m confident that Brad can give it to us on Friday night.” – Crew chief Jeremy Bullins
