Keselowski Qualifies 28th at Phoenix

March 3, 2012

AVONDALE, Ariz. (March 3, 2012) – Brad Keselowski and the No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger team qualified 28th for Sunday’s Subway Fresh Fit 500 at Phoenix International Raceway (PIR).

Keselowski toured the one-mile, high-banked oval in 27.127 seconds, or 132.709 miles per hour. Penske Racing teammate AJ Allmendinger qualified 15th in the No. 22 Shell/Pennzoil Dodge. Following the Cup Series qualifying session, Keselowski finished second in the NASCAR Nationwide Series event at PIR.

“Just didn’t put the whole lap together,” said Keselowski. “We’ll work on the Miller Lite Dodge Charger a little bit and hopefully we’ll get it right for race time.  The track gets worse when cars don’t run on it in a bulk so one car at a time it actually gets worse.  It can’t keep up with the sand that gets put on the track.  It’s just kind of the way it is.”  

The Subway Fresh Fit 500 will air live at 2:30 p.m. ET on the FOX network on Sunday, March 4. Race coverage will also be broadcast live on the Motor Racing Network and Sirius Satellite Radio Channel 90.
