It doesn’t seem all that long ago that Brad Keselowski was just a fresh faced young kid hoping to make his mark in NASCAR.  After making his fulltime debut in NASCAR’s Sprint Cup series in 2010, Keselowski scored only two top 10s. In the Nationwide series however Keselowski went on a tear winning six races in route to the season ending title.

Team owner Roger Penske liked what he saw and in 2011 moved Keselowski’s Nationwide crew chief Paul Wolfe up to the Sprint Cup series.  Keselowski and Wolfe won three races in 2011 and finished fifth in the season standings.

In 2012 however, the Keselowski-Wolfe pairing has been seemingly unstoppable.  On Sunday, Keselowski scored his fifth season win, the latest coming at Dover International Speedway, a track where Keselowski had struggled in the past. MORE>>>
