What do you say after you’ve made Matt Kenseth feel “stupid” and Kyle Busch think he “screwed up” in about 50 seconds, and then your car owner — the most famous and diverse in the world — says you drove a “perfect race”?

You say, “Hell, it’s my job to be good,” if you’re Brad Keselowski, who keeps hurtling to the front of NASCAR as both a driver and a personality. “I don’t get paid to suck at this.”

Just when Sunday’s Aaron’s 499 appeared at the brink of becoming a repeat of the Daytona 500, with Kenseth clearly dominant, Keselowski blew the whole thing apart on the green-white-checkered finish at Talladega Superspeedway.
