Sprint Cup regular Brad Keselowski's brother Brian, who was the underdog story of Speedweeks when he raced his way into the Daytona 500 through the Gatorade Duel qualifying races, will be back on the circuit. After getting sidelined by emergency gallbladder surgery just after Daytona's events wound down, Keselowski has made plans to get back behind the wheel.
From Team News Release
Brian Keselowski will resume his driving duties in the #92 Dodge for the Sprint Cup race Richmond International Raceway.
After suffering from emergency gallbladder surgery, Keselowski had to take a step back and recover. Keselowski was not able to drive at Bristol and had long time driver/friend Dennis Setzer step in and take over.
Keselowski was forced to withdraw from Auto Club Speedway and was not yet medically cleared to race at Martinsville. Once again Dennis Setzer stepped in and drove the #92. An unfortunate wreck during practice at Martinsville put the K-Automotive Motorsports #92 out of contention early that weekend [the team had no backup car] and contributed to withdrawing their entries from Texas and Talladega.
K-Automotive Motorsports took that time to rebuild and regroup and are now ready to get back on the track and go racing.
Brian Keselowski has fully recovered and has been granted clearance by his doctors and NASCAR to return to his drivers seat in the #92 K-Automotive Motorsports Dodge. Plans are for Keselowski to drive Richmond, Darlington and Dover.
