Keselowski Qualifies 15th at New Hampshire

September 22, 2012




LOUDON, N.H. (September 21, 2012) – Brad Keselowski and the No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger team qualified 15th for Sunday’s Sylvania 300 – the second race of the 2012 Chase for the Championship – at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.  

Keselowski toured the one-mile oval in 28.506 seconds, or 133.614 miles per hour, in in the Saturday afternoon time trial session. Dave Blaney, filling in for Sam Hornish Jr. while the driver is at Kentucky Speedway for the NASCAR Nationwide Series event, qualified 10th in the No. 22 Shell/Pennzoil Dodge Charger. Hornish will race on Sunday afternoon.

“I wish we could figure out qualifying because that’s an area where we could be better,” said Keselowski. “It wasn’t a terrible day, but we’d certainly like to be closer to the front. The car is great in race trim, though, so I’m excited.”

The Sylvania 300 will air live at 2:00 p.m. ET on ESPN on Sunday afternoon. Race coverage will also be broadcast live on the Performance Racing Network and Sirius Satellite Radio Channel 90.
