Brad Keselowski won the race ... and ended up in the care center

   Brad Keselowski dominated and won Saturday night's Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway but not long into his Victory Lane celebration he was on his way to the infield care center.

   While shaking a champagne bottle in Victory Lane, the bottle broke and Keselowski received a nasty cut on his right hand which required four stitches to close. After a change of driver's suit, Keselowski returned to Victory Lane to complete his media obligations.

   “We were playing around with some champagne bottles and as I told my good friend, ‘We should have stuck with beer.’  We were having too much fun with champagne and one of the bottles broke and I cut my hand open.  It’s no big deal," he said.

   Keselowski was reminded that earlier in the week he spoke about how everything was an adventure with him.

   "Yeah, welcome to the party," he said. "It’s all good. I’m just glad we won. It’s a lot better story when you win and get hurt.”
