Brad Keselowski qualified for Sunday’s Sprint Cup Dickies 500 at Texas Motor Speedway driving the GoDaddy.com number 25 for Hendrick Motorsports.
He qualified 37th, ahead of another first time qualifier Joey Logano who qualified last for the event.
Keselowski regularly drives the Nationwide Series JR Motorsports number 88 Army Chevrolet.
Keselowski was rumored to have a possible ride elsewhere in CUP for 2009, but opted to stay with JR Motorsports with an eye towards driving for Hendrick in the Cup series in the future.
Keselowski has two Nationwide Series wins this season including the Food City 250 at Bristol Motor Speedway.
