2014 Charlotte (All-Star): Team Penske NASCAR Sprint Cup Race Preview


· SO MANY TWOs: In the last two years, Brad Keselowski and the No. 2 Team Penske Ford finished 22nd in last year’s NASCAR Sprint All-Star race following a runner-up result in the 2012 event.

· HOME FOR FOUR: On top of his driving duties in the All-Star race on Saturday evening, Keselowski is scheduled to compete in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race on Friday, the Nationwide Series race on the following Saturday, May 24 and then the Coca-Cola 600 on Sunday, May 25.
· WHITE LITE ALL-STAR NIGHT: The No. 2 Team Penske Ford returns to its Miller Lite livery for the All-Star race. The white Ford Fusion driven by Keselowski has acquired a couple of popular monikers this year including the “White Lite” and the “Blanco Deuce.”
· FUN-FILLED WEEK WITH FORD: Racing in the Charlotte area for a couple weeks gives the drivers and teams the opportunity to stay home and invite friends to work. Team Penske took the opportunity to welcome Ford executives to a dinner at their facility in Mooresville, NC on Monday night. On Tuesday, Keselowski and Logano gave rides to Ford executives and media members at Charlotte Motor Speedway in specially-prepared two-seat cars that Keselowski uses for his Checkered Flag Foundation ride-along events.
· SIXTH ALL-STAR START: Keselowski will make his sixth career start in the annual Sprint All-Star race this weekend. He made his debut in 2009, when he started 10th and finished 17th. His best result to date came in the 2012 race when he finished in second place.
· WINNING AT CMS: Keselowski will be looking to build on a winning tradition at Charlotte Motor Speedway over the next couple of weeks. He won the pole there in the fall race of 2011 and he scored a victory at Charlotte last season during the fall race.
· NOT SATISFIED WITH SECOND: Last season, Joey Logano and the No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil Ford Fusion team finished second in the Sprint All-Star race, a career-best effort for the 23-year-old driver. However, as he will say, if there is one race on the schedule that no one will ever remember who finishes second, it’s the Sprint All-Star event.
· SOLID HISTORY: Logano has competed in the Sprint All-Star race three times over of the course of his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) career. He first raced in the event in 2009, when he finished eight after getting into the event via the Fan Vote during his rookie season. In 2010, Logano finished third and followed that up with his second-place result last season.
· CHARLOTTE IS HIS TRACK: Of all of the tracks on the NSCS schedule, Charlotte remains Logano’s best track statistically. In 10-career points races at Charlotte, Logano has earned three top-five and six top-10 finishes over the years. On top of that, he’s earned two top-five and three top-10 finishes in three All-Star race appearances and has won a NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Charlotte.
· A UNIQUE TWIST: One of the fan favorite parts of the All-Star race in Charlotte is the unique qualifying format, in which the drivers make three timed laps as well as a green-flag pit stop. This year, qualifying for the race will take place just two hours before the start of the race, while it had traditionally taken place on Friday the last several seasons.
· GET THE ALL-STAR’S AUTOGRAPH: Logano will join all of the other drivers in the Sprint All-Star race on Friday, May 16, for a special autograph session at the Sprint Experience at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The session will run from 4:00-5:00 pm ET and participants will be limited to the first 100 wristbands. Fans can visit the Sprint Experience display for more details on the autograph session.
