Keselowski will make appearance this August at Michigan track, have race named in his honor

Auto City Speedway and Miller Lite have announced that on Wednesday, Aug. 15 -- days before the Sprint Cup race at Michigan Speedway -- Rochester Hills native Brad Keselowski will appear at Auto City Speedway in Clio, Michigan.

Racing that night are the JEGS/CRA All Star Tour Series combined with the Lafontaine Performance Center Super Stocks, in a race to be called the “BRAD 100”.

Watch for more details as Brad will be signing autographs, pacing the “BRAD 100” in the Auto City Pace Car, and waving the green flag.

Keselowski has plenty of Michigan roots, having been raised working at his family's race shop. His father, Bob Keselowski, was a 1997 race winner in the Camping World Truck Series. His uncle, Ron Keselowski, competed at the Cup Series level in the early 1970's.

At the age of 14, Keselowski made the transition from turning wrenches for his family-owned team, K Automotive Motorsports, to racing. And the rest is history. Local fans will have a chance to welcome him home this August.
