Brad Keselowski, the driver of the No. 2 car for Penske Racing, was testing at Road Atlanta on Wednesday to prepare for the upcoming race at Watkins Glen when he was involved in a head-on crash. Per reports on his own Twitter page:

In a serious accident today while testing road Atlanta. Hit wall head on in a 155mph corner after brakes failed. Airlifted to hospital.
Looks like I'll be ok to race this weekend. Blue deuce, not so much. I'll keep u posted.
Guess I needed a reminder. Cot or not, this racing S&@t is still dangerous.

Penske Racing Vice President Jonathan Gibson issued a brief statement in which he said: “(Brad Keselowski) was transported to an Atlanta area hospital for further evaluation. Brad was able to exit the car under his own power, but as a precautionary measure was taken to the hospital. Penske Racing will provide further communication as details become known."

Keselowski was pending release from the hospital. He does expect to be racing this weekend.
