Driver cuts hand on champagne bottle in Victory Lane

Brad Keselowski celebrated Saturday night's win at Kentucky Speedway in a most unusual location -- the infield care center.

The Team Penske driver, who led 199 of 267 laps to win the Quaker State 400 presented by Advance Auto Parts, sliced his right hand open in Victory Lane on a champagne bottle.

His celebration cut short, the driver was whisked away to the infield care center to get four stitches before taking care of his post-race media obligations.

"We were playing around with some champagne bottles and as I told my good friend, 'We should have stuck with beer,'" Keselowski said. "We were having too much fun with champagne and one of the bottles broke and I cut my hand open. It's no big deal.

"Yeah, welcome to the party. It's all good. I'm just glad we won. It's a lot better story when you win and get hurt."

Keselowski is famous for his post-race celebrations, which start with donuts and the American flag and, after he won the 2012 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, end with a big beer tumbler or a big champagne bottle as seen below.
