Brad Keselowski -- 2012 Sprint Cup Champion

Brad Keselowski clinched the Sprint Cup title at Homestead after five-time Cup champion Jimmie Johnson pulled out of the season-finale race because of a parts failure. The 28-year-old Keselowski claimed the first championship for longtime NASCAR owner Roger Penske and grabbed a title for car manufacturer Dodge, which is leaving the Sprint Cup series after the season. The championship was Keselowski's first-career title.
