A typical test for the Verizon IndyCar Series at Road America ahead of next week’s Kohler Grand Prix had a shocker in the final couple hours of testing.
Brad Keselowski, the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion, climbed into Simon Pagenaud’s No. 22 Menards Team Penske Chevrolet to run some laps.
Team Penske and the IndyCar Series posted tweets of Keselowski preparing to run the car and video of him doing so.
Keselowski does have one past NASCAR Xfinity Series start at the track, having finished fourth in 2010.
And for good measure, Ed Carpenter offered Kasey Kahne a chance to run whenever he wants too, after Kahne tweeted “awesome!!” after seeing the news. Carpenter runs the two-car Ed Carpenter Racing program.
So, just before 4 p.m., he looks set to do so.
Here’s a social roundup… this post will be updated:
