Former Sprint Cup champion hits the Big Apple for media tour
Brad Keselowski was on hand in New York City on Wednesday -- which, coincidentally, happens to be his 30th birthday -- for a slew of media appearances.
The 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion kicked off his day with a stop by the set of "Live with Kelly and Michael." The episode will air Friday, Feb. 21.
From there, he hit the "Dan Patrick Show" at 10:30 a.m. ET and has scheduled spots on Jim Rome's radio show (1:03 p.m. ET), Shepard Smith (3:30 p.m. ET, FOX News) and Dagen McDowell (To air Thursday, FOX Business).
Some of the dialogue between Keselowski and Mike Heller, who was filling in for Patrick:
Mike Heller: How does Brad Keselowski celebrate his birthday in New York City?
Brad Keselowski: Well, talking to the Dan Patrick Show. Obviously.
MH: And Dan's not even here.
BK: I know it's not the birthday I thought it was going to be. No, I'm going to have some fun tonight and toss a few back. We're going to relax, but got to work, man. You know how it is.
MH: Are you 30 years old now?
BK: I am. Well, no, actually it's the anniversary of my 29th birthday.
MH: You can turn 30 as a man. It's not really an issue, and it's not old on the NASCAR circuit, is it? What is your prime when you're a driver?
BK: That's a great question because it's something that's talked about a lot in this sport. Most drivers hit their prime around 32, 33 years old so I guess I do have that going for me, but that doesn't mean I like being older.
