Hurts so good: Keselowski bloodies his hand during Victory Lane celebration

Not much went wrong for Brad Keselowski Saturday night at Kentucky Speedway.
The Team Penske driver was dominant during the Quaker State 400, starting from the pole and leading 199 of 267 laps en route to his second victory of the season.
However, once Keselowski made his way to Victory Lane, things got plenty bloody plenty quick. Celebrating with his crew, the 2012 Sprint Cup Series champion had trouble opening a bottle of champagne, and hit the top of the bottle against the trophy stand.
Instead of opening up as planned, the bottle shattered in Keselowski's hands, cutting his right hand. Quickly putting a towel on the gushing wound, the race winner was hurried to the infield care center for attention.
Keselowski required four stitches in his right hand to heal the wound, but he returned to complete his post-race media requirements.
"We were playing around with some champagne bottles and as I told my good friend, 'We should have stuck with some beer,'" Keselowski said after leaving the infield care center. "We were having too much fun with champagne and one of the bottles broke and I cut my hand open. It's no big deal."
