HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. – Brian Keselowski, who made headlines when he raced his way into the 2011 Daytona 500, has partnered with Hamilton Means Racing to attempt the 2013 edition of the Great American Race.

“I’m excited about the opportunity to partner with Brian Keselowski and be a part of the Daytona 500,” said Kelly Owen, a partner at Hamilton Means Racing. “Brian has shown the same ability as his brother, 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski, but just hasn’t had the equipment to prove it. We are hoping with this partnership that we can get him the equipment he needs to be successful.”

Keselowski, who plans to drive the No. 52 Toyota at Daytona Int’l Speedway next month, has signed a primary sponsor for the Daytona 500, which will be announced at a later date. The team has also signed associate sponsor Highland Wealth Advisors LLC.

Support has also come from many loyal NASCAR fans. More than 100 fans of Keselowski on social media networks have signed up to help sponsor the No. 52 Toyota. Several others sponsored a little more to have a decal on the deck lid of the car.

“NASCAR Fans are amazing and resourceful. They actually talked me into having them on our car and I am happy that they did,” said Keselowski. “The connections I have made with my fans have been very successful and I’m grateful for each one who supports me and my team.”
