bad brad breaks through at bristol

I don’t even know if people call Brad Keselowski “Bad Brad” but I needed “B” words and it sounded about right, so there ya go.

How did you feel about his reaction to winning the Bristol night race? I thought it was great. Except for the jumping off the car part, because his ankle is still HURT. I don’t know why I have such a complex about him not using crutches or sitting down when he doesn’t need to stand. It’s CLEARLY working alright for him. I wasn’t expecting him to be such a big winner this year. It’s pretty amazing stuff and this is just his second year in Cup.

If you follow me on Twitter then you already know the fabulous news that I’ll be going to at least TWO more races this year FOR SURE. It’s all thanks to Sylvania and Hunt Brothers Pizza. Sylvania is the title sponsor of the New Hampshire Cup Series race in September (the second race in The Chase for the Sprint Cup) and they’ve got some fun activities planned around that weekend that I will be attending & covering. Can’t wait to write about it all. I’ll also be at Kansas, where I will be hanging with the Hunt Bros. Pizza group for the Nationwide Series race. Be on the lookout for a great interview to come out of that!

On a very personal note… It’s my birthday tomorrow. I turn the big 3-1 and the greatest birthday present you could ever give me, besides just being yourself and reading this blog (which I totally appreciate), would be to donate to My NASCAR Year 2012 project (or get your company to do it!). Read all about it and donate here. You can give anonymously or not, it’s up to you. :) Even $5 helps me get to my goal of $125,000!

    Special K is on a roll! I’m not sure that I’m of the thinking that he could actually be on a roll big enough to win a championship or finish 2nd but I still think he could finish the year off with at least 1 more win a mid-Chase pack finish.

    I’m excited for you to get to go to NH & KS!

    Brad is the Denny Hamlin of 2011! I’ve liked him since he first started driving for Junior in NWS, and love his ‘rivalry’ with Kyle. And I absolutely LOVE the way he carries the american flag on his victory laps, real heartland patriotism…!
