#2-Brad Keselowski was voted the 2012 Driver Of The Year by an elite panel of motorsports broadcasters and journalists.

Keselowski was a near-unanimous choice in the annual award, after winning his first NASCAR Sprint Cup championship and the first as an owner for Roger Penske.

"To be honored with the 2012 Driver Of The Year is a great way to cap off our championship season," said Keselowski, who also won the fourth-quarter vote. "The list is definitely a 'Who's Who' in the history of racing. It gives me great pride to see my name there with the likes of Mark Donohue and Mario Andretti, drivers who have transcended one particular discipline or series, and are considered some of the best to ever sit in a racecar. Keselowski scored 18 of the 19 votes cast by journalists and broadcasters, who voted in a secret ballot for a single driver. Ryan Hunter Reay, the 2012 IndyCar champion, received the remaining vote. In the quarterly voting, Keselowski beat the NHRA's Antron Brown and five-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion Jimmie Johnson by more than double the points. In its 46th year, the 2012 Driver Of The Year title is unique because it is the original award of its' type that encompasses all of the racing series and all of the drivers in the United States.

The Keselowski saga even outpolled the ending of Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s long winless streak with his victory Michigan International Speedway in June. At the beginning of the season, nobody was putting any money on Keselowski and the No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger qualifying for the Chase. His first three outings resulted in two finishes below 30th. But a win at Bristol in March, another at Talladega in May and a third at Kentucky in June showed Keselowski and his Dodge had what it took and the Detroit-area native begin rising in the points standings. After defying the early-season odds and qualifying for the ten-race Chase for the..
