As Brad Keselowski beamed moments after his first NASCAR Sprint Cup championship at Homestead-Miami Speedway, it wasn't just his accomplishment that stoked the afterglow.
No, it was the amber liquid from sponsor Miller Lite that fueled the celebration with the now infamous schooner referred to by the champion as "The Big Beer Glass."
So where is the glass that became one with the champ?
"I don't know," Keselowski said Thursday. "I really don't. It should have a Twitter account: @Bradsglass. But no, I don't know where it is. I will find it as soon as I get free time to do so. It seems like everything these days takes on a life of its own. I have a @Bradsankle, @Bradscellphone -- why not @Bradsglass?
"We've had fun. It's been a great experience. I'm just enjoying it. But they took the glass from me -- David Hovis (Keselowski's public relations representative) took it from me (at Homestead). He got booed by the crowd when he took my glass. That was the highlight of my night."
Team owner Roger Penske wasn't sure of the glass' whereabouts, but he had distinct plans for the keepsake -- and those don't include being on the champion's table Friday night.
"I don't know where it is, but I know one thing, we want to make it a special gift for one of our employees," Penske said. "I haven't signed it yet. He probably won't show it to me. I'll want to keep it."
Keselowski's pilot and spotter Joey Meier insists the schooner is on the plane. That, however, appears to be a replica. Meier said employees at MillerCoors signed a glass on Monday when Keselowski stopped to visit his sponsor on the way to Las Vegas.
Although Keselowski's souvenir team hopes to work out a deal by which "Brad's Glass" will appear on a trailer near you in time for Speedweeks, the brewery that has sponsored Penske Racing's Sprint Cup effort since 1991 has a deal in which a lucky fan can bid on the "Miller Time Sprint Cup Championship Glass" on eBay. Proceeds from the auction of this commemorative pilsner glass signed by Keselowski, Penske and the No. 2 Brew Crew will be donated to Brad's Checkered Flag Foundation to benefit the families of military and first responders. For more information on the auction, visit the site at eBay .
As for the original vessel that ignited the past 12 days and nights of Miller Time? According to Hovis, "Brad's Glass" is tucked away safely at Brad Keselowski Racing in North Carolina.

During halftime at a Charlotte Bobcats game NASCAR Champion Brad Keselowski competed in a basketball “skills” event. If you feel bad about your game maybe you should check out how bad Keselowski’s is at basketball. Perhaps Denny Hamlin could show him a few moves or introduce him to Michael Jordan.
It is not the glass that Brad Keselwoski but it is one like it. The 2012 Sprint Cup Champion is auctioning off a “one-of-a-kind Miller Time Sprint Cup Championship Commemorative Glass” which is signed by Keselowski and Roger Penske.

NASCAR driver Brad Keselowski, a Rochester Hills, Michigan native, is living proof that NASCAR drivers should not be considered athletes. And I don’t even care that his basketball skills are worse than my 18-month old’s.

The latest NASCAR Sprint Cup champion, Brad Keselowski, has become quite a force on the Internet lately. First, it was his impressive ability to drink a lot of beer in a short amount of time.

Well folks, I was sitting and listening to some interviews today and people were talking about Brad Keselowski becoming a Sprint Cup champion and what impact, what influence that would have on him and his personality.
As you know, he pretty much speaks his mind; he tells it like it is, he does things his way. That's what makes him who he is. I've heard him say, and I just...

Why this video didn’t go viral two years ago is beyond me. Brad Keselowski, the latest NASCAR Sprint Cup champion has a basketball skills competition video that is one for the ages.
