Brad Keselowski Conquers The Monster Mile At Dover International Speedway

Talk about pouring fuel on the fire.  Brad Keselowski goes the last eighty-nine laps without pitting to win the Sunday race at Dover and the last seventy-eight under green flag conditions.  That’s a ridiculous amount of laps to ask the driver to make.

BK then underscores how good his car does on mileage by doing three burnouts and driving to victory lane with fuel in the tank.  That’s almost like showing off.  However when you stand atop the NASCAR Sprint Cup point standings, you might as well enjoy it.

Crew chief Paul Wolfe just be supplanting Chad Knaus as the best in the garage at using every tool in the chest to put his driver in position to win.  Jimmie Johnson’s pit boss has been instrumental in thinking outside the box, then pulling the right levers to get the 48 to five titles.  Knaus had the obvious advantage of Hendrick horsepower and almost every resource under the sun at his disposal.

The 2 bunch has some good stuff.  Nonetheless when the elite teams are listed, the Penske organization isn’t in the top three.  Plus the Penske cars are the ONLY Dodges running and even the manufacturer is a lame duck with Penske’s switch to Ford in 2013.  Three races into this chase, we’ve seen seen three dominating performances with only Denny Hamlin able to cap the day with a win.  In Chicago, BK mashed the gas at the right time to subdue Johnson then at Dover BK feathered his ride to the checkered flag.

Undoubtedly a year ago the attention was rightfully paid to the bid for six straight titles for Johnson.  We were then treated to a dead heat to the finish for Carl Edwards and Tony Stewart.  With three wins and a wild-card slot in the chase Keselowski was a novelty last year, but actually it was a sign of things to come.  Next week at Talledega Superspeedway should be a must-see especially since BK won the spring race and could pull off the sweep and take a giant leap toward a title.
