Defending STP 400 winner Brad Keselowski stopped in Kansas City today and took on a new challenge – LEGOLAND Discovery Center Kansas City where he tried his hand at building a LEGO race car and also racing his car against Jeremiah Boehr, the Master Builder at the site.

Keselowski built three versions of his first car before putting it on the track for the first time. Not having the result he wanted, Keselowski went back to the drawing board and built another car. This time, he had the answer winning the next two races to take home the “LEGO Cup.”

“It’s all about the tires and the driver on this track,” said Keselowski, who also unveiled a replica of Kansas Speedway made of LEGOs, as he searched for the perfect driver for his car.

Keselowski, who won two races at Kansas Speedway last year, returns in April for both the SFP 250 and the STP 400.

“I’m looking forward to returning to Kansas Speedway,” he said. “I’ve had some success there so it’s definitely one of my favorite tracks.”

Prior to LEGOLAND Discovery Center Kansas City, Keselowski took part in a Q&A session at Crown Center and definitely won over the young fans in the crowd as he answered their questions about how fast his car goes and why he wanted to become a race car driver.
