BRAD THE BLOGGER: Add blogging to Brad Keselowski’s many roles.

As the outspoken reigning Sprint Cup champion, his new online outlet could get interesting.

Keselowski has joined the team of nine celebrity contributors to’s 2013 motorsports section, which will feature this season blog items from drivers from NASCAR, IndyCar, NHRA, ALMS and Grand-AM.

“NASCAR is a big part of my life, I love talking about it and sharing my stories,” said Keselowski. “When they asked me to add my own personal take on NASCAR to their site, I jumped at the opportunity.”

Autoweek’s driver lineup also includes IndyCar’s Will Power and Graham Rahal; NHRA’s Bob Tasca III, John Force, Courtney Force and Robert Hight; Grand-Am champion Scott Pruett; and Tommy Milner of ALMS.

Keselowski isn’t shy about voicing his opinion, particularly on Twitter, where he regularly engages with fans and media. His thoughts on fuel injection during a 2011 appearance at the NASCAR Hall of Fame earned him a fine from NASCAR, and his opinions on where NASCAR is headed during an interview with USA Today last month led to a meeting with NASCAR chairman Brian France and International Speedway Corp. chairwoman Lesa France Kennedy.


CASSILL SUING: Landon Cassill has sued BK Racing over alleged unpaid wages from last season and for waiting too long to tell him he would not be back with the team this year.

Cassill filed suit in North Carolina Superior Court in Charlotte asking for $205,000 in back salary and an unspecified amount of money against BK Racing and owner Ron Devine because the team did not tell him until mid-January he wasn’t needed for the 2013 season.

“I really hated to go the legal route, but at the end of the day I’m ultimately asking to be paid what I earned last season,” Cassill said in a statement. “I was excited to race for BK in 2013 and was disappointed when my contract was not renewed for this season.”

Cassill, who finished 31st in points last season with BK, has landed a part-time ride with Circle Sport.
