|Keselowski Hoping for Win in Home State
|BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) -- With three wins this season -- and a near-victory last weekend -- Brad Keselowski has established himself as one of NASCAR's top drivers.
Now, he'll try to reverse an unpleasant trend at a place near and dear to his heart.
Keselowski is from Rochester Hills, about 90 miles from Michigan International Speedway, but he's never won in six Sprint Cup starts at the track -- and he has only one top-10 finish.
Keselowski has won this year at Bristol, Talladega and Kentucky, but he was 13th at MIS in June. That's actually his second-best Cup finish at the track. He was third last August after ending up out of the top 20 in his other four starts.
