During his speech at the Sprint Cup Awards Brad Keselowski explains why he’s uncomfortable standing at a podium in a suit and thanks everyone in the room who has made it possible for him to live out his dream of racing.
But Keselowski, who finished the 2015 season seventh in the points, gave champion Kyle Busch his due. The two drivers have a well established rivalry going back years that now stretches to their Truck series teams. Keselowski said he believes they bring out the best and worst in each other.
Earlier this year, while Busch was still recovering from his leg and foot injuries from the beginning of the season, Keselowski wrote an in-depth blog about the history of their rivalry.
Keselowski wrote, “Not having Kyle around actually made me think about our relationship. Our rivalry is pretty well documented. We’ve made comments about each other that have made headlines. But the strange thing is that we actually have more in common than you’d think. When it comes to the way we race, Kyle and I share a lot of similarities.”
