NASCAR Champ Brad Keselowski Returns Home, Hangs Out at Pistons Game
The Rochester Hills-born driver will also appear at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn this week.
Brad Keselowski, the NASCAR Sprint Cup champion who grew up in Rochester Hills, paid a visit to a neighboring city Tuesday night.
Keselowski was a special guest of the Detroit Pistons; he presented the team with the official game ball prior to tip-off of their game against the Milwaukee Bucks (the Pistons lost the game, 117-90).
Keselowski won the Sprint Cup, which is considered the season championship for the sport, in November; it was his first championship.
During halftime, former Piston Rick Mahorn presented Keselowski with a framed, autographed Pistons flag, according to a report in the Detroit Free Press.
Before the game Keselowski participated in a question-and-answer sessions with fans, during which he reminisced about his favorite Piston as a kid growing up next door in Rochester Hills; it was Bill Laimbeer, according to the newspaper.
"So much fun!" Keselowski tweeted from his @keselowski Twitter page Tuesday night.

On Thursday afternoon, Keselowski will appear at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn. Details of that event are here.
