Brad Keselowski Tries His Hand at "Camel Power" at the Birmingham Zoo

BIRMINGHAM, AL – Brad Keselowski, a three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) winner at Talladega Superspeedway, isn’t used to a string of bad finishes at NASCAR’s Most Competitive track, which is what he has experienced in the last three spring races at the 2.66-mile venue. Tuesday, he said he was ready to get over the “hump” and put those dismal results behind him with a win in the May 1 GEICO 500. He proved it by trading in horsepower of a stock car for “Camel Power,” riding a long-neck, humped-back camel at the Birmingham Zoo.
