"It looked like a guy that was having fun, which is what I was having," Keselowski, 28, said Tuesday on a conference call with reporters. "I'm proud of that moment.

Brad Keselowski, the newly crowned NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion, said Tuesday he has no plans to keep his title trophy at home. "It's not at my house, it's at Penske Racing on display for the team guys," Keselowski, 28, said during a break in testing at Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina. "I don't keep trophies at my house," Keselowski said, according to a transcript provided by Ford Racing. "I don't believe in building a shrine to myself. It's kind of weird. " Penske, which formerly ran Dodge race cars, has switched to Ford for 2013 and Keselowski was testing his No. 2 Ford Fusion at Charlotte.

When Dodge announced last month it was leaving NASCAR's Sprint Cup Series after 2012, the automaker was careful to say it would still help its sole Cup team, Penske Racing, try to win a title this year. Dodge might just get that done. Penske's Brad Keselowski has the early lead in NASCAR's 10-race Chase for the Cup championship playoff after winning the Chase opener last weekend at Chicagoland Speedway. And although Keselowski, 28, is only in his third full year in the Cup series, few discount his ability to keep pace with his more experienced Chase rivals, including five-time champion Jimmie Johnson and reigning titleholder Tony Stewart.
