PLAYERS: Brad Keselowski
Defending Sprint Cup champion and two-time Bristol Motor Speedway winner Brad Keselowski celebrated his 29th birthday Tuesday at the World’s Fastest Half-Mile in a big way. Keselowski, who won last spring’s Food City 500, as well as the 2011 IRWIN Tools Night Race, was honored today by mayors Joel Staton (Bristol, Tenn.) and Jim Steele (Bristol, Va.) with a proclamation naming Feb. 12 as Brad Keselowski day in Bristol. The proclamation recognized Keselowski’s success at Bristol Motor Speedway, his passion for racing at the iconic concrete track, his dedication to military members, and the work of his Checkered Flag Foundation, which supports those who have sacrificed greatly for their country, including U.S. military members, veterans, first-responders and their families. Keselowski, who was also surprised by the BMS staff with a birthday cake and gifts, was taken aback by the proclamation. “Well, I sure didn’t expect anything like this,” said Keselowski, who spent the afternoon skeet shooting with local members of the National Guard. “You guys really got me. I thought you might do something to surprise me but not having a day named in my honor. That’s really so cool. “I love this place. I love racing here and I love the people around here. It’s always been a great place for me and I always look forward to coming here. And I can’t wait to get back here in 30 days.” BMS PR
