Brad Keselowski to Run Retro Rusty Wallace Theme at Bristol

Brad Keselowski, driver of the No.2 Miller Lite Dodge for Penske Racing is gearing up for this weekends race at Bristol Motor Speedway. He won here in the Spring but with a track reconfiguration about the only thing we know for sure is that Keselowski will be running an old Rusty Wallace Miller Lite paint scheme.

It’s fitting that the retro theme will be ran at Bristol considering Wallace won nine career races at the track, second to Darrell Waltrip’s twelve.

His car will feature a tag line on the rear bumper and it will read “Inductee Rusty Wallace.” This is a tribute to Wallace’s 2013 induction into the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

Only thing we can say here is that; Keselowski may want to make sure that Jeff Gordon doesn’t think Rusty is still driving the car or else he may be on the wrong end of a bump and run.

During his time in the No. 2 Miller-sponsored car, the former Penske Racing driver accumulated 37 wins, 145 top-five finishes, 252 top-10 results, while leading a total of 15,012 laps.

The induction date is February 8th, 2013.
