Keselowski Looking for Luck at Milwaukee Where K Automotive has Earned Two Poles and One Win in Past Two Years: After three weeks of bad luck hanging over Brad Keselowski and the K Automotive team, they are looking forward to returning to a race track where they have experienced success for the past two years. Last year the No. 29 Ford sat on the pole and finished seventh while the season prior the team won from the pole position. In the course of the team's nine starts at the Milwaukee Mile they have earned one win, two poles, four top ten finishes and two top five finishes. This season, as the team continues the search for sponsor funding, they are hopeful for a solid showing in the Black Cat Fireworks 200 to end their three week streak of disappointing finishes.
"This is one of the race tracks that I have really been looking forward to coming back to race on this season," said Keselowski. "K Automotive has always run well here, especially the past two years. We sat on the pole both of the last two years and won the race from the pole in 2002. I know this track is not the easiest to get around, but I know we have some great notes on set-ups and I feel like this could very well be the race that turns around the bad luck of recent."
Keselowski has shown patience and perseverance in his rookie season running well each week, but experiencing mechanical problems prior to the finish of the events. Keselowski tested at the Milwaukee Mile earlier this season and feels confident about his abilities, his race team and his equipment heading into the Black Car Fireworks 200 on Friday night.
"I have been pretty proud of the runs we have had at most of these races," said Keselowski. "But unfortunately we have not been able to back up the run with a good finish at the end of the day. We were able to test at Milwaukee earlier this season at the Ford test and had a really good day. I just hope to be able to post a good finish for myself and this entire K Automotive team."
The Black Car Fireworks 200 will take the green flag on Friday, June 25 at 8:00pm CT/9:00pm ET and can be seen Live on Speed Channel as well as heard Live on MRN Radio and XM Radio Channel 144.
