The infield of Richmond International Raceway was quaking with excitement yesterday, as NASCAR driver of the #2 Miller Lite Dodge, Brad Keselowski, joined race fans for Keselowski’s Cookout – an event attended by hundreds of Wonderful Pistachios 400 ticket holders.
Featuring ice cold Miller Lite, BUBBA burgers, tailgate games and an appearance by Keselowski, the opportunity to enjoy the cookout was offered to fans who purchased tickets to the Saturday, September 10 “One Last Race to Make The Chase” at Richmond International Raceway. Through a random drawing, a select number of fans were invited to come out with a guest.
Keselowski entertained the crowd by joining in several games of cornhole, driving hot laps and signing autographs for nearly everyone in attendance. When he returns September 10 for the Wonderful Pistachios 400, fans can expect one of the most exciting events of the season, as the race will determine the field for the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup.
“I think you’re looking at the last wild card race here at Richmond as the ultimate Race to The Chase race because a lot of teams have one win,” said Keselowski, who currently holds the first wild card spot. “And if any of them can break through and get that second one, it nearly clinches their spot. So there’s a lot of guys that can race their way in at Richmond.”
