Brad Keselowski finds victory lane more dangerous than racetrack

He didn’t know when to say when during the victory celebration after the Quaker State 400 Saturday night and needed four stitches to close a cut on his hand.

“We were playing around with some champagne, and I told my good friend I should have stuck with beer,” Keselowski joked Sunday (via the Sporting News). “We had too much fun with champagne and one of the bottles broke and I cut my hand open. It’s no big deal.”

Keselowski hit the bottle on the podium in victory lane at Kentucky Speedway.

“I hit it on something,” Keselowski said. “I think I hit it on the corner of the podium and then it broke. I don’t know. I was trying to get the top off and shaking it at the same time, and people were spraying me and I couldn’t really see all that well. It was just one of them deals.”

He doesn’t expect that he’ll have a problem driving next Saturday at at Daytona International Speedway.
