Keselowski to Start Fourth at Auto Club Speedway
March 23, 2013
FONTANA, Calif. (March 23, 2013) – Brad Keselowski and the No. 22 America’s Tire Ford Mustang team qualified in the fourth position for Saturday’s Royal Purple 300 at Auto Club Speedway.
Keselowski drove his Penske Ford around the 2.0-mile speedway in 40.683 seconds at 176.978 miles per hour during qualifying earlier today. Sam Hornish, Jr., will start seventh in the No. 12 Wurth Ford Mustang.
“This is one of my favorite Nationwide Series races of the year,” said Keselowski. “ The America’s Tire Ford Mustang has a lot of speed in it. If we can find a touch more – I think we can find victory lane.”
The Royal Purple 300 will air live at 5:00 p.m. ET on ESPN on Saturday afternoon. Race coverage will also be broadcast live on the Performance Racing Network and SiriusXM Satellite Radio Channel 90.
