Keselowski insists he's not feeling title heat
MARTINSVILLE, Va. (AP) - Brad Keselowski talks like racing continues to be business as usual.
The 28-year-old is leading the standings in NASCAR'S Chase for the Sprint Cup, and while his margin over five-time champion Jimmie Johnson is only seven points, and perennial contender Denny Hamlin is only 20 points behind, Keselowski quickly dismisses talk that being chased in the chase means pressure.
Keselowski qualified 32rd for Sunday's race, which could make him vulnerable to getting caught up in an accident. But Johnson and Hamlin have both started back in the field here and rallied for good finishes.
Hamlin says Keselowski can hope to convince himself that there's no pressure on him, but says that the pressure will surely crank up as Keselowski gets closer to realizing his championship dreams.
