Keselowski cruises to Sprint Cup title as NASCAR's top driver

"We did it!"

That exultant Tweet came from Brad Keselowski as he rolled into pit row after Sunday's season-ending race, the Ford EcoBoost 400, at Homestead-Miami Speedway in South Florida.

Keselowski didn't come in first, a prize that went to Jeff Gordon. But his 15th-place finish was more than enough for the 28-year-old to cinch his first ever Sprint Cup championship as NASCAR's top driver this year.

    Maybe they figured this would give Jeffy more time to get over his recent post race rage. 😉

    "We did it", says Keselowski. We made a left turn. Ooooh, we made another left turn. Ooooh we made another left turn.

    Just another example of the failed policies of the Obama administration.

    How dare you?! Making it seem cool when texting and driving is a deadly combination. Not only should the driver apologize to the youth of America; but the phone company ahamelessly advertising that he did it – with all the laws that are in place – what is this company thinking? Profit over life? How sad a day for Nascar and Twitter!
