We had two opportunities to talk to NASCAR star, driver of the GoDaddy.com Chevrolets and Dale Earnhardt Jr’s personal trainer, Brad Keselowski. First during the annual ARCA kick off press conference and later as a guest ON PIT ROW.
Kez is a local favorite around these parts – the Keselowski family having a longtime presence in ARCA-land. But, with two 2008 Nationwide Series wins, a full 2009 NNS slate and a bunch of confirmed Sprint Cup Series starts for Hendrick Motorsports, Brad has gone big time. And the locals are happy about it.
And the kid is funny. He answered all the usual driver questions. But when asked about his relationship with his boss, Dale Jr, he told some stories about getting Junior into working out. Specifically running. And it didn’t sound like Earnhardt’s heart was really in it. It;s one of those stories that lose much of the humor in the re-telling. I guess you had to be there.
We joked with Brad about his GoDaddy.com commercial work and asked if he’d had a chance to work with fellow GoDaddy.com marketer Danica Patrick. I can tell you, if Brad ever gets an opportunity to help out with one of Patrick’s swim suit shoots, he’s in.
We’ll have the podcast of Brad’s interview with us posted on Wednesday.
Update: Here’s Brad Keselowski’s ON PIT ROW podcast.
