NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Brad Keselowski has had very little time to relax since the final race at Homestead-Miami Speedway two weeks ago. From appearances on national TV to countless meetings with the media, Keselowski has had very little time simply relax; and that’s just fine by him.

The 28-year-old Michigan native was one very few people’s list of contenders when the 2012 season began. But Keselowski showed he had what it takes to become NASCAR’s best, beating five time champion Jimmie Johnson to win his first title. The price for his crown comes after the season when the champion’s media tour begins. After a week in New York City, the final round begins this week when the champion hits Las Vegas along with the rest of the series to celebrate the season past, and the new champion.

Keselowski arrived in Vegas on Tuesday to began a week of stops that will culminate in the season ending banquet Friday night.  If he was worn down, NASCAR’s youngest champion since Jeff Gordon wasn’t showing it arriving at his first media event raring to go.

“You have questions; I have answers,” Keselowski said with a smile. Later the subject matter turned to tanks. Keselowski, whose foundation serves military personnel and veterans, agreed a tank would make a nice addition to his collection of vehicles. MORE>>>
