DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Brian Keselowski has a sponsor for the Daytona 500.
The journeyman received funding from Discount Tire and was applying the logos to his car Saturday.
Keselowski has become the feel-good story of Speedweeks after receiving help from his brother to earn his first Sprint Cup start in NASCAR's biggest race. Brad Keselowski pushed his older brother around Daytona International Speedway in a qualifying race earlier this week to help Brian get into Sunday's season-opener.
Brian Keselowski came to Daytona with two crew members, his father and his uncle, and was a long shot to make the race.
Now he'll pick up a paycheck of at least $250,000 - money he can use to climb out of debt and continue his fledgling career.
