Over the course of the 36-race season, the Miller Lite team racked up five wins and came away with 23 top-10 finishes. During the all-important Chase for the Sprint Cup, they stepped up their game even more, winning twice and scoring nine top-10s.
Keselowski walked away with the championship, setting off a victory celebration that will long be remembered by anyone who witnessed it, to give Roger Penske his first Sprint Cup championship. And Dodge walked away on top of the world, carrying home the crown for the fifth time and for the first time since Richard Petty did so in 37 long years ago.
Brad Keselowski captured the top spot in the #2 Dodge at the 2012 Aaron’s 499 in Taladega. He had won this race previously in 2009 driving a Chevrolet. Keselowski began the 2012 race at the 13th position.
