At the start of the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Penske Racing's Brad Keselowski was not one of the favorites for the championship. Yet they won which makes them our #3 top 20 moment!
Athletes in other sports may opt for new wheels, or perhaps some new bling to commemorate such a milestone moment, but not Keselowski. Instead, Keselowski wants to make tracks, and he wants to make those tracks with a tank.
2012 first-time Sprint Cup champion loves to tweet, and even had his hands slapped by NASCAR, not once but twice! His followers include the worldwide fans and the media.
