HOT – Brad Keselowski

Brad Keselowski is more than hot, he is on fire right now. Keselowski has won two of the last three races and as a result is now tied with Jimmie Johnson for the most wins in the series. What is even more impressive is the fact that Keselowski has ran in the top-three in five of his last seven races. His recent run of strong finishes has pushed him up to third in the point standings and if the chase were to begin this weekend, Keselowski and the No. 2 team would have the top seed. Many critics were quick to call Keselowski a fluke champion after the season that he had in 2013. While it may still be hard to persuade his critics, it is easy to see that Keselowski is primed to make a run at a second championship this season. It would be hard to discredit him if he ends up winning two championships in three years. While a lot can happen between now and the chase, I don’t foresee Keselowski and the No. 2 team losing their momentum anytime in the near future.
