K Automotive Brings Rookie Talent and Team Experience to Texas:
While K Automotive Motorsports continues to hunt for that elusive sponsorship for their No. 29 Ford F-150s, this weekend they will make the trip from their Michigan-based shop to one of the team's favorite tracks, the 1.5-mile Texas Motor Speedway. K Automotive has earned an impressive record at the speedway which 20-year old rookie, Brad Keselowski hopes to continue at this Friday night's O'Reilly 400k. K Automotive has made 12 starts at the speedway and earned one win, six top ten finishes, three top five finishes and five top five starting positions.
"This is definitely one of those race tracks that we as a team have a lot of success at," said Brad Keselowski. "I have been here when we have gone to victory lane and had some really successful runs. I am really looking forward to getting on the race track and seeing if those other 12 starts that I have been here for will help me to get around this track just as well."
Keselowski was able to take advantage of some track time at Texas earlier in the season during an open Ford Racing test. Keselowski impressed several on-lookers in attendance by posting times equal to many of the top Ford truck teams. With three NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series starts so far this season, Keselowski knows he needs to focus on finishing the race and keeping the truck in one piece.
"I have spent a lot of time watching the tapes from previous races we have run at Texas," said Keselowski. "I have reviewed the team notes and raced on my simulator as well, but I think getting back on the race track in practice will be the most beneficial. We tested really well here at the test session, but I also know that until we secure sponsor money, we can't have another weekend like we had in Dover where we lost a truck. I'm really excited about running at Texas and I think the success that we have had here as a team will pay off."
