Meade vs. Keselowski: Mario Kart style

Robin Meade and NASCAR driver Brad Keselowski compete at MarioKart

Defending Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski joined HLN in Studio H Thursday morning, and Robin Meade challenged him to a little race -– video game race, that is. It ended up just as you might expect:

1st place: Brad Keselowski

12th place: Robin Meade

During the race, Robin was able to ask some viewer questions. 

Earlier in the hour, they tackled the controversy hounding Keselowski and his team going into Sunday’s race at Talledaga. During the NRA 500 in Texas, he was slapped with a 25-point penalty for having an unapproved part on his car. Keselowski is appealing the decision, but that penalty puts him 6th in the standings going into the race. How will that impact his team?

Later, Keselowski talked to Robin about his Checkered Flag Foundation that flies wounded warriors and their families to races and even gives them the experience of being in the car at full speed on the track.

Robin will be at Talladega this weekend to sing the national anthem before the Aaron’s 499! Catch it live on your local Fox TV station. Coverage starts at noon, and the race begins at 1 p.m. ET.
