SPARTA, Ky. - Brad Keselowski's champagne celebration in Victory Lane at Kentucky Speedway ended with a trip to the infield care center.

As the team was celebrating its second win of the season, Keselowski cut his right hand when he broke a bottle of champagne, as he was shaking it and trying to get the top off, on the edge of the trophy podium. Victory Lane photos and interviews were put on hold as Keselowski was sent to get his bloody hand stitched up.

"People were spraying me and I couldn't really see all that well," Keselowski said. "It was just one of them deals.

"You know, I did the typical guy thing. It's not that bad, it's not that bad, and I shook it a couple times and there was blood flying everywhere. I thought, this is pretty bad. And then I started kind of walking through my mind, is this for real. There really wasn't a much more intelligent thought than that.

Keselowski doesn't expect the injury to hinder his driving next weekend at Daytona International Speedway.

"The last time I had stitches it was seven days or so, and we're going to Daytona, which is probably the easiest track you could ask for," Keselowski said. "No, I didn't break any bones or any of that stuff. I just put a big gash, so I don't think it'll be an issue."

Sporting a NASCAR Winner decal on his bandage, Keselowski signed the trophy stand, "Brad K #2 was Here #oops" with an arrow pointing to where the bottle chipped the paint.
