Brad Keselowski reacts after his qualifying run for Sunday's NASCAR Sprint Cup S

Keselowski continues to surge with Coca-Cola 600 pole


CONCORD, N.C. – Brad Keselowski got out of his Dodge Thursday after pole qualifying and launched his shoulder into the chest of one of his Penske Racing crewman.

After running 192.089 mph to win the pole for Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600, he couldn’t keep his emotions under control.

“Fast cars go fast,” he said.

The defending Nationwide Series champion has struggled to find his place in the Sprint Cup Series. Thursday’s pole may be a big step to fixing that.
