March 26, 2011

FONTANA, Calif. (March 26, 2011) – Brad Keselowski and the No. 22 America's Tire Dodge Challenger team recorded the fifth-fastest lap during qualifying for the Royal Purple 300 at Auto Club Speedway on Saturday morning. 
Keselowski toured the two-mile oval in 41.326 seconds, or 174.224 miles per hour.
"A good starting spot for the race today," said Keselowski. "All the guys on the No. 22 America's Tire Dodge worked hard yesterday to make this car better. We were close to winning both races here last year and I think I have a car that can contend for the win today."
The Royal Purple 300 will air live at 5:30 p.m. ET on ESPN this afternoon. Race coverage will also be broadcast live on the Motor Racing Network and Sirius Satellite Radio Channel 128.
