LONG POND, Pa. (AP) - Brad Keselowski says no amount of pain he might feel from his broken left ankle will force him from Sunday's Sprint Cup race.
He has been cleared to race following the accident at Road Atlanta on Wednesday. He slowly eased into the No. 2 Dodge before turning laps in Friday's practice at Pocono Raceway. Keselowski says going through the corner with no breaks and no soft wall at Atlanta was his scariest moment as a driver.
Keselowski posted pictures on Twitter of the injury. It looked as if someone stuffed a softball on the left side of his ankle.
Keselowski won't run in Saturday's NASCAR Nationwide race in Iowa. Penske Racing says Sam Hornish Jr. will drive the No. 22 Dodge in Friday's practices, qualifying and the race.
