Brad Keselowski will kick off his 2009 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series schedule by attempting to qualify for the March 1 race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Hendrick Motorsports finalized the Shelby 427 and six other Sprint Cup events for the 24-year-old driver. It was announced Jan. 7 that Keselowski, a native of Rochester Hills, Mich., will attempt a seven-race Sprint Cup schedule this season for Hendrick Motorsports in the No. 25 GoDaddy.com Chevrolets. The effort will be led by veteran crew chief Lance McGrew. "It's exciting to have everything finalized and ready to go for 2009," said Keselowski, who also will compete full-time in the NASCAR Nationwide Series for JR Motorsports. "We're going to some tracks where I'm pretty confident, and we're going to some places where I really need the additional seat time. "I'm especially excited about going to Michigan. The track isn't far from Rochester Hills, and it's going to be really cool to race in front of all my family and friends. All the tracks we're going to are great, but that one will definitely be a highlight for me. Along with the Vegas race, Keselowski's schedule will include the Samsung 500 (April 5, Texas Motor Speedway), Southern 500 (May 9, Darlington Raceway), Dover 400 (May 31, Dover International Speedway), LifeLock.com 400 (July 11, Chicagoland Speedway), Michigan 400 (Aug. 16, Michigan International Speedway) and the Kansas 400 (Oct. 4, Kansas Speedway) "It's a nice mix of races and a great opportunity for the whole GoDaddy.com team."
