BRAD KESELOWSKI AT NASHVILLE

· Brad Keselowski earned his first career Nationwide Series win at Nashville Superspeedway in 2008. He started on the outside pole and led 33 of 225 laps en route to the win. He is also the defending event champion, leading 97 laps including the final 22 for the win last year.

· The Michigan native completed only 49 laps in his first trip to the 1.333-mile track, but has completed every lap in the last seven races, claimed two guitar trophies that goes to the winner and has finished no farther back than fifth in those events. He was third earlier this season at Nashville.

THE NUMBERS

· There have been eight different winners in last eight Nationwide Series races.

· There have been five different winners in the last five Nationwide Series races at Nashville Superspeedway.

· Dodge has 35 wins in the Nationwide Series.

BRAD KESELOWSKI – No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge Challenger R/T
· Last NASCAR Nationwide Series win came at Kentucky two weeks ago.
· Claimed first pole of season last week at Loudon.
· 2010 Nationwide Series champion

SAM HONRISH JR. – No. 12 Alliance Truck Parts Dodge Challenger R/T
· Seventh at Richmond best Nationwide finish in 2011; started second in that race.
· Started 13th and finished 25th in 2007, his only previous start at Nashville.

BRAD CONFIDENT
"I always look forward to going to Nashville Superspeedway. It has always been one of my favorite race tracks. You can really be aggressive because there is so much room to race. Obviously, it's a special place for me because I won my first Nationwide Series race there in 2008. We came back in the second race there last year and had one of the best cars we had all year. It didn't qualify that well, but I was pretty confident that we would win the race. I never like to pick favorite tracks, but Nashville is a place that I feel like I can go there on any given night and win.”
Brad Keselowski, No. 22 Discount Tire Challenger

SAM SAYS
“As always, I am extremely excited to get back behind the wheel of the No. 12 Alliance Truck Parts Dodge. The team has been working really hard back in the shop between races to get this Dodge Challenger ready for this weekend. It will be interesting because the race will start during the day and end at night. We have been knocking on the door for a pole position and a strong finish, so hopefully we can make it happen this weekend with the Alliance Truck Parts Dodge.”
Sam Hornish Jr., driver, No. 12 Alliance Truck Parts Dodge Challenger R/T

No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge Challenger News and Notes

· This Week’s Challenger… The Penske Racing Discount Tire Dodge Challenger team will use chassis PRS-207 during Saturday’s Federated Auto Parts 300 at Nashville Superspeedway. Keselowski drove this chassis to a third-place finish at Iowa Speedway in May.

· The No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge Challenger in 2011… After 19 events, Brad Keselowski and the reigning champion No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge Challenger team are ranked seventh in the 2011 NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) owner point standings. The team is coming off an eighth-place finish in the New England 200 last weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

· Most Recent Pole Award Winner…Keselowski topped qualifying last weekend at New Hampshire to claim his first pole award of the season. It marked his ninth career Nationwide Series pole award.

* Nothing Like the First Time…Keselowski made 48 NNS starts before he picked up his first series win, which came in the 2008 Federated Auto Parts 300 at Nashville. After starting the race from the second position, Keselowski went on to lead 33 laps to pick up his first series checkered flag.

* Keselowski Speedway Stats…In 92 speedway starts in the Nationwide Series, Keselowski has accumulated six wins, 39 top-five finishes, 56 top-10 results and four pole awards. In addition, he has led the field for 1,028 laps at tracks between one and two miles in length.

* Follow Brad on Twitter… Fans can follow Keselowski on Twitter athttp://www.twitter.com/keselowski. Followers can get a glimpse inside his everyday life while keeping up-to-date on the latest Cup Series and Nationwide Series news for the Penske Racing driver.

Brad Keselowski on racing at Nashville “I always look forward to going to Nashville Superspeedway. It has always been one of my favorite racetracks. You can really be aggressive because there is so much room to race. Obviously, it’s a special place for me because I won my first Nationwide Series race there in 2008. We came back in the second race there last year and had one of the best cars we had all year. It didn’t qualify that well, but I was pretty confident that we would win the race. I never like to pick favorite tracks, but Nashville is a place that I feel like I can go there on any given night and win. There is always a big contingent of employees from Discount Tire at Nashville that know how to get everyone fired up. I can’t wait.”

Crew chief Todd Gordon on preparing a car for Nashville Superspeedway “Nashville is pretty unique in that it is almost a 1.5-mile track, but it’s concrete. Most of our concrete tracks aren’t speedways so that provides a few challenges. Everybody will fight for the bottom of the track at the start of the race, but the groove will widen as the cars run. Most importantly, you need to have a car that is balanced for long and short green-flag runs. There is usually a caution with a few laps remaining that will setup a shootout to the finish, so you have to be prepared for that. Brad has been very good at Nashville in his career and we need to give him a car that he can use to pick up his third Gibson guitar (winner’s trophy).”

Dodge Motorsports Notes & Quotes - Keselowski/Kligerman Open Interview Session - Nashville
July 22, 2011 , LEBANON, Tenn. - Friday, July 22, 2011

Open Interview Session
NASCAR Nationwide & Truck Series




BRAD KESELOWSKI (No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge Challenger R/T)
CAN YOU TALK ABOUT RACING AT NASHVILLE? “I love Nashville. This place is where I got my first NASCAR win in 2008. It will always hold a special place to me. I enjoy coming back here. I enjoy the city. I enjoy the fans that we have here and how enthusiastic they are about racing. It’s a very special place for me to come and race at a track that I just seem to pick right up on. I enjoy coming here.

“Kind of an easy weekend for me driving this weekend. I’ve got a lot of other things going on with the (No. 29 Penske Truck Rental RAM) truck being here. It’s been running so well lately and I’d like to see it win a race. Hopefully, I can be in attendance when it wins.

“Nashville is a great place to come race. I’ve got two guitars. Winning last year and in 2008, I’d love to have three.”

CAN YOU TALK ABOUT STARTING IN THE TRUCK SERIES AS A DRIVER AND NOW AN OWNER? “There’s a lot of different reason that go into the decisions to own a truck. Certainly, the camaraderie that I feel in the truck series with the different teams and the people that work in the series – from the media to the officials – makes it have a natural feel and I thoroughly enjoy it as well. Looking back at it, it would just seem weird to have a family that has been in the truck series since the beginning to not have a truck entry. It feels right and it’s one of those things that you follow your heart.”

WHAT IS YOUR RESPONSE TO THE NFL PLAYER’S REMARKS ABOUT DRIVERS NOT BEING ATHLETES? “I think there are certain people that are just looking for attention. Maybe he was looking for attention. If he was looking for attention, he certainly found it.

“You don’t have to be an athlete to do it, but you have to be an athlete to do it well. I think that you can (look) at a lot of sports and say that. Whether it’s looking at John Daly with golf or a kicker on a football team – and some kickers are (great athletes). There are sports where you don’t have to be an athlete to do it, but you have to be an athlete to do it well and racing is one of those sports.”

IS IT A MISCONCEPTION TO SAY THAT DRIVERS AREN’T ATHLETES? “It’s tough to say because there’s no real way to show what a driver goes through to showcase it to a fan or a follower, for them to really grasp a concept. It’s really expensive to just put someone in a race car and let them run a race. So most people will never get that experience and I’m lucky to have gotten that experience myself. It wasn’t until the first few times that I did it and went, ‘wow, this is really a lot harder than it looks’. Over time, you build up a skill set and endurance if you are an athlete and do the right things. I can certainly appreciate and understand those who don’t get racing from that sense.”

WHAT DO YOU DO WITH THE GUITARS THAT YOU’VE WON FOR WINNING AT NASHVILLE? “I’ve got one at the shop and the second is on its way to the NASCAR Hall of Fame. I don’t know if it’s gotten there yet. I enjoy both of them. I’ve tried to play both of them and I’m not any good. A third one would still be very nice.”

CAN YOU TALK ABOUT YOUR CUP SEASON SO FAR? “The Cup Series has been up and down. Last week was a bummer. We’ve shown a lot more speed on a consistent basis. I feel a lot more confident with where we’re heading as a team. It’s just a matter of getting consistent execution, which is really tough. We all have to grow together to make that happen. I think that when my team fires on all eight cylinders, we’re a top-10 team. We just need to make it an effort to fire on all eight cylinders and we haven’t done that on a consistent basis, but I see the potential to do it.”

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM THE BRICKYARD NEXT WEEKEND? “I’m not really sure what to expect there. I’m still figuring my way around that place. I’m certainly going to miss running at that small track. That small track has always meant a lot to me. It’s one of the few tracks that I’ve never missed a race as far as the trucks are concerned. I think it’s the only track where I’ve never missed a race. I enjoy going there. There’s something to be said about going to the Brickyard as well and what it means to this sport and what it means to auto racing in general beyond NASCAR. Kind of mixed emotions.”

HOW DID YOU COME TO THE DECISION NOT TO RUN MONTREAL IN THE NNS? “From the beginning of the season it was something that I wanted to look at. We really hadn’t made a decision until we got the right driver that made sense for the sponsors and for the team. Obviously, Jacques (Villeneuve) is a very aggressive, talented racer. He’s won Montreal in a F1 car. So I’d love to see him win in my car. That would be cool. What he means to the town of Montreal is just good for everybody on our team and I’m excited to see what happens there. Time will tell.”

WILL YOU HAVE THE CHANCE TO TALK TO JACQUES ABOUT SETUP? “The cars are different this year from last year. I think everything is pretty much out the window for that.”

PARKER KLIGERMAN (No. 29 Penske Truck Rental RAM)
CAN YOU TALK ABOUT YOUR TRUCK SEASON SO FAR THIS YEAR? “I think that the first part of the season isn’t what we wanted, but we’ve come on the last few weeks, few months. It’s a lot of hard work by our guys. It’s about being able to finish races without a mark on them and being able to go look at them after the race and see where we need to be better. A big part of it comes from my owner Brad Keselowski. From Monday through Friday, he’s there with us trying to make our trucks better and faster. At the end of the day, we’re looking for speed. When you have speed, you can put those other pieces together. Speed is what we look for the most. It’s really exciting to be driving these trucks when they’re that fast. I look forward in being able to make that next step and getting that first win.”

IS THERE ANY ADVICE THAT BRAD HAS GIVEN YOU THAT YOU CAN USE? “There’s been plenty. The one that sticks the most is after Dover when we were running third and going for second with eight to go and wrecked. I was in his bus afterwards and he said, ‘don’t do that again.’ It’s as simple as that. After that, I think that we’ve kind of chipped away at it and gotten better every week. I’ve taken the mentality of letting the races come to us. Sure enough, it’s worked out in our favor week in and week out.”

BRAD KESELOWSKI (No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge Challenger R/T) Finished 12th
“I’m not sure what happened with the motor. Something broke and we’re still not really sure. It’s a little bit disappointing because we had such a fast Discount Tire Dodge at the start of the race. No real indication that something was wrong under the hood. We thought it might have been a bad spark plug so we came in under caution, but it looks to be something internal. It’s tough. We had a car that was capable of winning the race. We led a ton of laps before the motor issue and then just had to ride around hoping that the motor wouldn’t let go. We have great stuff at Penske. It was just one of them racing deals. We’ll take it back to the shop and figure out what happened.”

SAM HORNISH JR. (No. 12 Alliance Truck Parts Dodge Challenger R/T) Finished Sixth
“A little warm tonight without air conditioning. I was trying to prove who’s tough (laughs). We had a pretty good run in our Alliance Truck Parts Dodge tonight. We just had one issue on that last restart. I sit at home and watch these races on TV and watch all these green-white-checkered (finishes) and we never get them when I race. The car was really good on the restarts. We just didn’t have the long-run speed that we needed. I’m really happy with our effort. The car ran great; we just couldn’t get the track position that we needed. On our last restart, we had a malfunction with our radio. Chad (Walter, crew chief) had an issue with his button on the radio. I’m not supposed to go until he tells me to go. I sat there and watched five guys go around me. But we were able to get those spots back and bring home a sixth-place finish. I think we had a top-five car tonight. We kept all the wheels on it tonight and raced them hard to the end.”

CHAD WALTER (crew chief, No. 12 Alliance Truck Parts Dodge Challenger R/T)
“This track is probably one of the hardest places to come to when you haven’t raced here in a while. Sam (Hornish) hasn’t been here in a while, but did an awesome job. Overall, the weekend went really well. I was really proud of Sam and the crew guys. It was a hot weekend and it’s tough on those guys. Sam did a great job. We held our own all night. Track position was really important. We tried a couple of tricks and we just couldn’t get the track position that we needed. On the last pit stop, I had a hiccup with my radio and I asked for Sam to dig me out of the hole. He did an awesome job and drove his butt off. To go from 11th on the restart and finish sixth isn’t easy on this track. It was a good weekend for this team and something to build on with this Alliance Truck Parts Dodge.”
