Funny how Kyle Busch, Carl Edwards, and Denny Hamlin thought Brad Keselowski would never amount to anything in NASCAR. Guess what? Brad Keselowski is your NASCAR champion while all three still chasing for one. Two of the three blew their chance in the final race in the past few years.

Way a go Brad Keselowski for becoming NASCAR champion.

Wtg Brad ,

Dont overlook the maturity Brad has shown as well since he 1st started in the series . His gas saving moves this year were a big plus.



Oddly under the "classic" full season points Brad also wins by 19 over Greg Biffle.

BTW- OLB, I hope you have recovered fully from all your injuries.

Great season on here fellas. Good to see a few more tuning in to NCWTS this year with us too.
Can't wait for 2013. Dirt tracks and RC's for Trucks, piquet's a proven race-winner, brand new Gen6's, BK as defending Champ, stronger Nationwide field the list goes on!

Thanks for the company :up:

What really impresses me about Brad is that he never retaliated on track against Hamlin or Edwards, even though at least Edwards definitely deserved a trip to the wall at least once. He got the best revenge on those two eventually.

On another note, can you imagine being a NASCAR official in Jimmy Johnson's pits? If you get the lug nut call wrong, you just singlehandedly cost the team a championship.

Didn't really matter in the end though when the gearbox blew up, did it?

Wouldn't BK still get the championship with his finish at 15th position?

If JJ had no problem then he'd have finished ahead of Brad and Brad would've come 16th. :cool:

Yup, But I think 16th was enough if JJ didn't have most laps lead ;)

anyway, congrats to Brad, Penske and Dodge, great for all of them! Couldn't have been a better trio to be honest

can't wait for next years with the new cars <3

Thanks for the thought--unfortunately I'm in for another surgery on Nov 30th. Had to wait until the season was over. ;)

It was the offending lugnut that went inside the wheel and started tearing shit up.

And he is now appearing drunk on ESPN.



Gulping out of the giant Miller glass on camera between questions was amusing. The Sportscenter host was clearly trying not to crack up as he asked the questions.

I dunno, that's what Hendrick said in his post-race interview. He was probably referring to the 2nd pitshop to put it on.

First of all, I've pay to see Brad and Denny sit and watch that part you indicated in a room. Denny sounds like a blowhard given recent events, doesn't he.

Secondly I think there are accuracies to what Denny said, especially the part about "Once he gets in to racing on Sundays he'll realize that in his younger years he didn't do it the right way."

I wonder how clenched Roger Penske's ass became when he saw that interview on SportsCenter.
