LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - It's always a busy time at the track just a couple of weeks away from the Quaker State 400. A few cars have already arrived at Kentucky Speedway to test, but on Wednesday a special event was held just outside the track as defending Nascar Sprint Cup champion and defending Quaker State 400 champion Brad Keselowski was at the track. He wasn't there to drive but to shoot. Keselowski participated in a team clay shooting contest with members of the Speedway management.
"Racing is a lot of fun but during the week you can always get caught down with some of the mundane stuff of being a race car driver," said Keselowski. "It's nice to do some events like this where we can all have some fun with."
"We like to do some fun stuff, and we like to do some things that show the personalities of the drivers. Especially someone like Brad Keselowski who's got such a great personality," said Speedway General Manager Mark Simendinger. "
Keselowski finished in the top ten in the previous two Sprint Cup races at Kentucky Speedway, including last year's win. He says this year he plans to race in all three series races.
"I don't know if I necessarily have any advantage here at Kentucky, but I certainly don't have any disadvantages. You set up the two team where we can play level with the field, and with the execution we are capable of showing, we can win."
