The Backstretch Blog: How Brad Keselowski Stole the Sprint Cup (okay won, not stole)

Every driver, Down in NASCAR
Liked points racing a lot... (okay not so much but work with me here)

But Keselowski,
Brad Keselowski,
Did NOT!

Keselowski hated points racing! The NASCAR post-season!
Now, please don't ask why, Everyone knows the reason.
It could be that his head wasn't screwed on quite right.
It could be, perhaps, that his cars were setup too tight.
But I think that the most likely reason of all
May have been that he just liked winning most of all.

But,
Whatever the reason,
His head or his cars,
He stood there on Chase Eve, ready to take on NASCAR,
Staring up from fourth place, with a his Keselowski frown
At the vets and past Champions, who had all been around    
                                                   
For he knew every driver both above and below                                                                       
Has plotted a strategy, was ready to go.

"And they're hanging new bodies!" he snarled and jeared.
"The Chase for the Championship, It's practically here!"
Then he revved up his race car, and said with a sneer
"I MUST find a way with the Sprint Cup this year!"

Then he got an idea!
A speed filled idea!
Keselowski
Got a wonderful, speed filled idea!

"I know just what to do!" Keselowski laughed in his throat.
"I run hard all the time, that will really get their goat!"
And he chuckled, and clucked, "What a great BK trick!
"With this car I'll push hard, and I'll be first quick!"

And what happened then...?
Well...in NASCAR they say
That Keselowski raced to a title, And he did it his way!
And for a minute car didn't feel quite so tight,
He whizzed pass them all, and finally had his night!

And he brought back the edge! And the fan base did feast!
And even his rivals ...called Keselowski...

The Champ and a beast!
