    dodge charger keselowski race car.jpgThis past weekend marked the 10th stop on the
    2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and with it came the second win for Team Penske
    and Brad Keselowski in his #2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger.  Keselowski started in the 13th
    position and worked his way to the front of the field during the high speed
    race around the 2.66 oval track. 

    Late in
    the race, a caution flag led to a green-white-checked system that saw
    Keselowski pushed past then-leader Matt Kenseth by Toyota driver Kyle Busch on
    the second to last lap.  Then, during the
    last lap of the race, Keselowski was able to out-muscle the Toyota Camry car of
    Busch to preserve the win.  Teammate AJ
    Allmendinger, who started on the outside of row 1 – finished 15th. 


    Keselowski’s
    second win of the season moved him up to the 12th spot in the 2012
    Sprint Cup season standings while AJ Allmendinger also moved up one spot, now
    sitting in 20th.

    Things weren’t so great for the two Dodge entries in the
    Saturday NASCAR Nationwide Series as Keselowski had a strong start at 9th
    but struggled all day to finish a fairly disappointing 20th – one lap
    off the pace.  Keselowski’s teammate Sam
    Hornish Jr was towards the front of the field late in the race but ended up edging
    out Danica Patrick for 12th in what turned into quite a melee.  As the two crossed the line with Hornish
    claiming 12th, his Dodge Challenger drifted up the track – squeezing
    the sexy female driver into the wall. 
    Patrick glanced off with little impact but as the two cars entered turn
    1 (after the race was over, mind you), Miss Patrick got into the back of
    Hornish’s car – sending him into the outside wall in a fairly violent
    fashion.  Danica played it off as an
    accident that she wrecked Hornish but many believe that it looked fairly
    intentional.  Perhaps she was too busy
    texting her BFF about evening plans to see the slowing field but in any case -
    Hornish finished 12th with a wrecked car.  His finishing spot allowed him to hold onto
    his 4th place spot in the season points.

    The NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series both head to
    Darlington this weekend.
