CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Brad Keselowski's refusal to be pushed around on the race track has earned him a few comparisons to the late Dale Earnhardt.
It's a conversation Keselowski will not participate in out of deference to the Hall of Fame seven-time champion.
"Racing in some ways is like music - you can be influenced as a band by another band," he said. "Certainly there is some influence there. But I'm not that band. It's flattering with all the success that (Earnhardt) has had. But I'm not (that) band, I'm just trying to do things my own way, the best way I know how."
