October 12, 2012




CONCORD, N.C. (October 11, 2012) – Brad Keselowski and the No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger team qualified 20th for Saturday night’s Bank of America 500 – the fifth race of the 2012 Chase for the Championship – at Charlotte Motor Speedway.  

Keselowski toured the 1.5-mile oval in 28.238 seconds, or 191.232 miles per hour, in in the Saturday afternoon time trial session. Sam Hornish Jr. qualified 14th in the No. 22 Shell/Pennzoil Dodge Charger.

“We have all day tomorrow to dial the car in for the race,” said Keselowski. “I wish I could have put us up near the front for the green flag, but we’ve been in this position before. No one will panic.”

The Bank of America 500 will air live at 7:00 p.m. ET on the ABC network on Saturday night. Race coverage will also be broadcast live on the Performance Racing Network and Sirius Satellite Radio Channel 90.
