Keselowski delivered on promise to win
TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) It didn't take long for Brad Keselowski to earn an unpleasant reputation in NASCAR. He was aggressive on the track, brash and arrogant off of it, and rubbed most of his competitors the wrong way.
Denny Hamlin famously feuded with him through the 2009 season, calling him "a complete moron" while alleging "every driver in the garage that comes up to me says, `That guy is a complete whack job.'" When Hamlin made good on a promise to wreck Keselowski in the 2009 Nationwide Series finale, Hamlin received a standing ovation from crews along pit road.
It was Carl Edwards who was fed up with Keselowski the next season, and he returned to the track at Atlanta to deliberately wreck his new rival. The contact had an unintended consequence, though, and Keselowski's car flew into the fence. Everyone in NASCAR picked sides but most thought "Bad Brad" had it coming.
