In Michigan native Brad Keselowski on the verge of NASCAR glory, the Freep Mike Brudenell writes:

Keselowski, the tough-as-nails, unflinching NASCAR driver from Rochester Hills, is one race away from making sports history in this state.

Should the hard-charging 28-year-old driver survive a torrid 400-mile stock car race in south Florida on Sunday afternoon — against some of the most unforgiving drivers in the world — he will become the new NASCAR Sprint Cup champion for 2012, the first person born in Michigan to do so.

…Keselowski races for Penske, the legendary Birmingham team owner, and needs only to finish 15th or better at Homestead-Miami Speedway in the last race on the Cup schedule to capture the title.
