No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge Challenger News and Notes

·         This Week’s Challenger… Brad Keselowski and the Penske Racing Discount Tire Dodge Challenger team will use chassis PRS-208 during Saturday’s Drive4COPD 300 at Daytona International Speedway (DIS). This is a new chassis to the No. 22 fleet.

·         The No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge Challenger in 2012... Keselowski and Parker Kligerman, who also competes in the NASACAR Camping World Truck Series for Brad Keselowski Racing, will share the driving duties of the No. 22 Discount Tire/Snap-on Dodge Challenger in 2012.

·         Keselowski Climbing the Charts…By taking the checkered flag in the 2011 season-finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway, Keselowski claimed sole possession of 15th place on the NNS all-time wins list with 17 victories. Keselowski is now three wins away from tying Greg Biffle for 14th place on the all-time list.

·         350 and 100… Two nice, round numbers that represent the total number of all-time race victories by Penske Racing and the total number of NASCAR wins by Penske Racing, respectively. The most-recent victory came in the 2011 NASCAR Nationwide Series season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway when Brad Keselowski scored the win. 

·         Keselowski Restrictor-Plate Stats… In 25 restrictor-plate starts in the Nationwide Series, Keselowski has accumulated one win, four top-five finishes, six top-10 results and one pole award. In addition, he has led the field for 130 laps at Talladega Superspeedway and Daytona International Speedway.

·         Meet Brad Keselowski… Keselowski will appear at the Discount Tire store located at 1051 Beville Road in Daytona Beach, Fla., on Wednesday, February 22 beginning at 5 p.m. ET.

·         Follow Brad on Twitter… Fans can follow Keselowski on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/keselowski. Followers can get a glimpse inside his everyday life while keeping up-to-date on the latest Cup Series and Nationwide Series news for the Penske Racing driver.

 

Brad Keselowski on his new crew chief

“I’ve been really impressed with Jeremy (Bullins) since he came over. Actually I’m honored that he would move from an established team like Richard Childress Racing, where he had been for a long time, to work on my car. He brings a lot of energy and desire and I like that about him. He understands that this is a championship team and he isn’t trying to reinvent the wheel, so to speak. The goal for this year is very simple – win the owner’s championship. We weren’t able to do that in 2010 and that is still a sore spot for me. I think Jeremy is definitely a guy that can lead us to that goal.”

 

Crew chief Jeremy Bullins on his first race as crew chief of the No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge Challenger

“It’s hard to describe my level of excitement as I prepare for my first race with this Discount Tire Dodge team. In a few short years this team has risen to one of the elite rides in the Nationwide Series. After a few months on the job, it’s easy to see why. NASCAR is truly a team sport and this team is a close as any I’ve been around. I’m the third crew chief on this car in three years – which is a good thing when you consider the other two are leading our Cup Series teams now – and it’s because of these guys that we are still able to maintain that level of excellence. I would like nothing more than to go to Daytona and start the season off with a win and I know Brad is capable of delivering that.”
