In hockey, fighting is a big part of the game. For 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Brad Keselowski, fighting was a big part of his 2014 Chase for the Sprint Cup.

Thursday night as part of the Road to the Daytona 500 media tour, the Team Penske put his hockey knowledge to good use as he visited the Tampa Bay Lightning. However, Keselowski left the fighting part to those on the ice.

Keselowski, a Detroit, Mich., native and longtime hockey fan, traded his Red Wings jersey for Lightning sweater, was given a tour of the facility, and met some of his childhood heroes.
