BRISTOL, Tenn. (March 16, 2012) – Brad Keselowski and the No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger team will start fifth for the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway.  

Keselowski toured the half-mile oval in 15.367 seconds, or 124.865 miles per hour. He improved his practice time by .226 seconds to garner his first top-five starting spot of the season. 

Penske Racing teammate, AJ Allmendinger, will start the race from the second position. 

“A great pickup from practice for our Miller Lite Dodge Charger,” said Keselowski. “I think I may have left a little bit out there, but it’s a strong starting spot for Sunday. I love racing at this place. Hopefully we can parlay this qualifying run into another win on Sunday.”

The Food City 500 will air live at 1:00 pm ET on the FOX network. Race coverage will also be broadcast live on the Performance Racing Network and Sirius Satellite channel 90.
