Often when a driver dominates a series, fans complain en masse about the fact. Yet a particular driver has been dominating the NASCAR Nationwide Series for over the last year with little fanfare...

Brad Keeslowski.

Since spring of 2009 he has:

  • 47 Starts
  • 7 wins
  • 35 Top 5s
  • 43 Top 10s
  • 46 Top 15s
  • Average Finish: 4.67
  • Worst Finish: 18th

So often Kyle Busch is the one pegged as being the force in the Nationwide Series, but why not Keselowski? While he may not have the flashiness of dominating victories, he is the true king of consistency in the series.

Not even Busch can lay claim to such consistently over this period of time.

Perhaps Keselowski should be given credit where a little credit is due. He may be the unseen dominate force of the Nationwide Series... and shows no signs of stopping.
