After this weekend, Brad Keselowski may be a bit more careful during Victory Lane celebrations.

Keselowski and his crew were trying to have a champagne party after his Quaker State 400 win, but the driver's bottle had other ideas, breaking apart when he tried opening it and slicing his right hand in the process:

The 30-year-old had to stop celebrating long enough to go to the infield care center to get four stitches.

Here's a look at the bandaged hand:

Keselowski, who is sponsored by Miller Lite, downplayed the injury, via USA Today's Jeff Gluck:

We were playing around with some champagne bottles, and as I told my good friend, 'We should have stuck with beer. It's no big deal. ... I'm just glad we won. It's a lot better story when you win and get hurt.

Fellow driver Joey Logano is willing to show Keselowski how to pop the champagne:
