Penske Racing's Brad Keselowski crashed his Sprint Cup Dodge hard during a test session on Wednesday at Road Atlanta. According to the team, Keselowski was able to exit the car under his own power, and was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure.
Penske Racing hasn't confirmed his availability for this weekend's Sprint Cup race at Pocono, although it has since ruled him out of this Saturday's Nationwide Series race in Iowa (click here for story). Keselowski himself was quick to post on Twitter that he expects to be racing at Pocono, although he acknowledged his No. 2 car was in bad shape.
"Looks like I'll be OK to race this weekend," he posted, saying X-rays had not identified any broken bones. "Blue deuce, not so much. I'll keep u posted."
Keselowski added that he was going 155mph at the time of the crash, and the car slowed to approximately 100, according to data, before he collided head-on with a wall that was not protected by a SAFER barrier.
The 27-year-old Keselowski also posted a couple of pictures of his injuries on his Twitter feed, one of them showing swelling on his left ankle. However, he expects to compete in this weekend's Sprint Cup event at Pocono, where he arrives 21st in the driver standing with a victory to his name claimed in early June at Kansas.
