Out of all seven seasons I have been a NASCAR fan, 2012 went the fastest. It seems like yesterday it was Daytona 500 weekend and the hype of the new season was at its highest. Well now the season has ended, we have a new champion and we can reflect on the incredible season 2012 was. The 2012 season may not have been as exciting as the 2011 season but it was definitely incredible.
Let’s take a flashback to the beginning of the season; the smell of a new race season filled the air with endless possibilities. After a busy off-season everyone was excited to see the first race of the season and see all the drivers in their new cars. Once the first race day of the season finally arrived, it rained. A violent Florida rain storm hit right on the opening day for NASCAR. The day we had been waiting months for had to be moved to Monday. Did the race on Monday Night disappoint? No but it would have been much better for the race to have been ran on Sunday.

Going into Sunday's season-ending NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Homestead-Miami Speedway, everyone pretty much thought things would turn out the way they did. But I've got to be honest: The race caught us a little off guard.
We felt like Jimmie Johnson and the 48 team were going to swing for the fence because they had to since they entered the race 20 points behind leader Brad...
Say what you will, the 2013 Sprint Cup Champion Brad Keselowski is not fake. He's not about to change just because everyone is watching now. Keselowski was asked recently if he had any regrets following his now "slightly buzzed" infamous appearance on the four letter network."I think everybody faces their criticism no matter what you do. You're never going...
Brad Keselowski did in fact win his first NASCAR Sprint Cup championship on Sunday in Miami. And boy did he celebrate the occasion. After starting the party early on in the evening, Keselowski showed up for a SportsCenter interview with Kevin Connors with what appeared to be a several hundred ounce glass full of Miller Lite, Keselowski's sponsor. Lucky guy. Makes me wonder...
Brad Keselowski won the Sprint Cup title on Sunday and decided it was a great idea to get drunk before (and during) the interview with SportsCenter. Mans sport right here. Just winning races and getting wasted. Call the man Ricky Bobby if you will. Check out the video below in case you missed it yesterday.

We suppose he’s drinking Miller Lite?
Brad Keselowski had every reason to be excited on Sunday. Keselowski beat out five-time champion Jimmie Johnson to capture not only his first Sprint Cup championship, but the first one for Penske Racing, as well.
So, by the time the 28-year-old was ready for his SportsCenter interview, he had admittedly already taken in a few drinks from the...
Before the party continued at the W in South Beach, Brad Keselowski lugged his new trophy down the backstretch at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
His mission? The perfect avatar photo.
"I want it dark," Keselowski said. "Like Batman and (crap)."
As he strolled away from the generator-powered lights, the new Sprint Cup champion experimented with several poses and...

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Brad Keselowski won the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship today at Homestead-Miami Speedway, earning owner Roger Penske’s first title in NASCAR’s premier series.
For owner Penske, the wait that began before Keselowski was born (1984) finally is over. Penske Racing, which entered the NASCAR Sprint Cup races in 1972, ended the longest non-championship...
How much of a role does luck play in a championship run?
People are probably going to say that what I'm getting ready to tell you is wrong, but I think it plays a lot. I'll go back and think about how even Jimmie Johnson has had some moments where luck has helped sustain his opportunity to wear the crown. Kurt Busch had a tire come off in the season finale in 2004, but was...

The final standings read like a rout.
Brad Keselowski won his first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship by 39 points over Clint Bowyer, with five-time champion Jimmie Johnson third, 40 points back of Keselowski.
What the final standings don’t show, however, was just how perilously close Keselowski was to losing a championship he controlled until divergent pit strategies late...
“I felt so calm and relaxed all day long because I didn’t have anything to protect. But it was as much like a normal race for me as ever. And that’s something that I enjoyed, it allowed me to stay loose in the car and communicate what I needed and we made the car better.”
For a portion of the 400 mile race at Homestead-Miami Speedway, it looked as though Jimmie Johnson...
