CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - It was just about a year ago that Penske Racing's NASCAR's branch appeared to be in total turmoil.
Now, a year removed from Kurt Busch's meltdown at Richmond, things couldn't be any better.
Brad Keselowski's win on Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway was the first for team owner Roger Penske at the Alabama track. It was the second of the season for Keselowski, and it cemented him as a strong contender to give Penske his first Cup championship.
And, oh, by the way, Penske's IndyCar team is pretty good, too. His drivers have combined to win all four races and all four poles so far this season, and begin Saturday preparing for the Indianapolis 500 - a race the organization has won 15 times.
