Dodge in 2010 NASCAR Nationwide Series
With 18 races completed in the 2010 season, Penske Racing’s two NASCAR Nationwide Series entries (Brad Keselowski and Justin Allgaier) have combined for five poles and four wins along with 19 top-five and 26 top-10 finishes. Penske Dodges have completed 6,586 of 6,608 laps contested and have been at the front of the field for 760 of those laps.

JUSTIN ALLGAIER – No. 12 Verizon Wireless Dodge
Highlights:


• Allgaier, a native of Riverton, Ill., grew up just over 100 miles northeast of Gateway International Raceway. He began his career racing quarter midgets in his home state at the age of five.

• Allgaier earned his first NASCAR Nationwide Series win this year at Bristol Motor Speedway, leading a 1-2 finish for Penske Racing and Dodge.
• Through the first 18 NNS races, Allgaier has one win with five top-five and 10 top-10 finishes. He started from the pole at Nashville and has an average starting position of 11.9 and an average finish of 10.9. Allgaier has led 131 laps of competition.

• Allgaier is currently ranked fourth in the point standings, 454 markers behind leader and Penske Racing teammate Brad Keselowski.

BRAD KESELOWSKI – No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge
Highlights:

• After 18 races, Keselowski and the No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge team currently lead the Nationwide Series driver standings by 227 points over Carl Edwards. Keselowski has led the standings since his win at Talladega in April.

• Keselowski earned back-to-back wins at Talladega and Richmond.

• Keselowski leads the NNS in top-five finishes (14), top-10 finishes (16) and laps completed (3,303 of 3,304).

• Keselowski has a NASCAR record 85 consecutive Nationwide Series races without a DNF (did not finish).

DID YOU KNOW
• Brad Keselowski set the track qualifying record at Gateway in 2009 with a lap of 33.158 seconds, earning his second-career NASCAR Nationwide Series pole.

• Dodge started 1-2 in the Nationwide Series for the first time this season two weekends ago at Daytona Int’l Speedway (Brad Keselowski and Parker Kligerman).

• Allgaier is running the same Dodge Charger that he used to record his first career Nationwide Series pole at Memphis Motorsports Park in October, 2009.

DODGE NATIONWIDE QUOTES
“Gateway has always been cool for me because it’s the first speedway that I raced on. It has long straightaways and tight corners, and that makes it a lot of fun because you really have to drive the race track. You’re only going to be good at one end of the track and you’ll have to compromise at the other. We ran pretty well at Gateway last year; we felt like we could have contended for the win but we got beat on pit strategy. The guys did a great job; it was just unfortunate that we got caught when the caution flag came out.”
Justin Allgaier, No. 12 Verizon Wireless Dodge Charger

“Gateway is a unique facility. It requires some different setups and different driver techniques. I think it’s really good for the sport to have some variety and Gateway certainly provides that. There is usually a good fan turnout for the events there and the fact that we are going there twice this year is pretty exciting in that regard. It’s a Dodge-sponsored race, so that means everyone at Penske Racing wants to win this weekend to ensure that the trophy stays within the Dodge family. I feel that with the way we have been running this year, we can go there and contend for the win.”
Brad Keselowski, No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge Charger

NNS: Keselowski Crushing Competition

Brad Keselowski is 227 points ahead of his nearest NASCAR Nationwide Series competitor...
fox news

If ever there were a time for the argument to extend the concept of a Chase For The Sprint Cup-style playoff to the NASCAR Nationwide Series, this would be the year.

With 18 of 35 races complete on the 2010 NNS schedule, Brad Keselowski is putting an old-fashioned butt-whipping on the entire field.

Keselowski, driver of the Discount Tire-sponsored No. 22 Penske Racing Dodge, has a 227-point lead over Carl Edwards, his old rival. Keselowski has led the standings since his win at Talladega Superspeedway in April and unless something radical and unexpected happens, he should cruise to his first series championship this year.

NNS: Edwards Wins In Wild Gateway Finish

Carl Edwards won the NASCAR Nationwide Series Missouri-Illinois Dodge Dealers 250 at Gateway International Raceway...
fox news

Carl Edwards and Brad Keselowski are at it again, and this time it got particularly ugly.




Edwards survived a frantic final lap and two incidents with Keselowski to win Saturday night’s Missouri-Illinois Dodge Dealers 250 Nationwide Series race at Gateway International Raceway. On a hot night in the nation’s midsection, tempers flared after the race.

Edwards held a slight lead over Keselowski as they took the white flag. In the first turn, Keselowski bumped Edwards’ left rear in a classic bump-and-run move to send Edwards high on the track. Edwards retained control, but Keselowski pushed to the front down the backstretch.

As the two cars exited turn four in the shadow of the checkered flag, Edwards turned into the back of Keselowski’s Dodge and sent the series point leader crashing hard into the outside wall. As Keselowski bounced across the track, the cars behind him scattered across the surface.

Shelby Howard slammed hard into Keselowski’s car, sending it into another spin.


Edwards kept control of his car and sailed across the finish line, edging Reed Sorenson, who had been third on the white-flag lap.

“I couldn’t let him take the win from me,” said Edwards, finally putting Ford in victory lane. “We came here to win, and they took it from us in turn one. I had to do what I had to do.

“He just got in over his head and tried too hard, and it was at my expense. Well, that [the final crash] was at his expense.”

Bob Keselowski, Brad’s father, was furious after the incident. “He ain’t going to kill my boy,” he said. “I’ll put a uniform back on and take care of this if I have to. That’s asinine.”

A caution with 13 laps to go set up the finish. The yellow was caused by Kevin Harvick, who won the Camping World Truck race at the track earlier in the day. He slammed into the outside wall, damaging the right side of his Chevrolet. He was running fourth at the time.

With eight laps to go and drivers in the top 15 frantically swapping positions, Justin Allgaier’s car was damaged in three-wide racing with Steven Wallace and Trevor Bayne. Allgaier slowed and was tapped into a spin by Taylor Malsam, sparking a multi-car crash that also involved Joe Nemechek.

Nemechek’s car wound up stalled in the middle of the track, and NASCAR put the field under red-flag conditions with five laps to go.

The green fell with two to go, and Edwards and Keselowski began their clash for the win.

Following Sorenson in the top five were Bayne, Paul Menard and Steven Wallace.

Keselowski, who finished 14th, dominated the first half of the race after taking the lead from pole winner Bayne.

He dropped out of the top spot temporarily because of driver error – and it happened to be his. While attempting to make a green-flag pit stop, he wasn’t able to slow his car properly on the pit access road and sailed onto the adjacent grass apron, losing control of the rear end of the car.

Keselowski responded quickly, saved the car and pitted but lost the lead to Edwards.

A few laps later, the recharged Keselowski chased down Edwards and regained the lead.

The field rolled under caution for the third time with 50 laps to go when Matt DiBenedetto lost control of his car and was hit in the driver door by Brad Coleman, his Joe Gibbs Racing teammate.
