NASCAR: Brad Keselowski Injured Celebrating In Victory Lane


When it comes to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series winning isn’t easy. For Brad Keselowski it would also seem that celebrating after a win is a bit of a task as well. Saturday night in Kentucky Keselowski dominated with his No. 2 machine and ended up winning his second race of the season all the while looking to be in championship form. Following the race in Victory Lane things got a little bit silly and Keselowski ended up with a minor injury and some stitches.

While celebrating in Victory Lane Keselowski ended up cutting open his hand. Following the celebration he explained what had happened.

We were playing around with some champagne bottles and as I told my good friend, ‘We should have stuck with beer.’ We were having too much fun with champagne and one of the bottles broke and I cut my hand open. It’s no big deal.

The injury resulted in Keselowski having to receive four stitches in order to patch up his hand. When asked about the stitches Keselowski chuckled and said “Four, but it’s all fixed now, so we’re good.”

For Keselowski everything is an adventure and Saturday night wasn’t any different. After winning the Sprint Cup championship in 2012 and missing the chase in 2013, Keselowski and his team appear to be ready to make a run at another title. Following the 2013 season some fans were quick to call 2012 a fluke for the No. 2 team. Thus far in 2014 Keselowski and company have proven that 2012 was anything but a fluke and that they are going to be major players when it comes to winning a title in 2014.

Saturday nights win moves Keselowski into a tie for the second most on the season. He now sits with Carl Edwards, Kevin Harvick, Joey Logano and Dale Earnhardt Jr. who all have two wins and who all trail Jimmie Johnson and his three wins. With only nine races left before the chase don’t be surprised if the No. 2 machine picks up another win or two before then.
