Popular NASCAR driver Brad Keselowski is the latest celebrity to deliver a clue for the television game show, Jeopardy!.
Keselowski’s moment in the spotlight came on Wednesday night when he helped present a clue for contestants during the show’s Double Jeopardy! Round. A contestant on the show selected “Potpourri for $1200.”
That’s when the NASCAR star chimed in from Las Vegas Motor Speedway to read the clue. For those who don’t know, that category is basically a combination of all kinds of questions compiled into one group.
Meanwhile, Brad Keselowski delivers the clue like a 20-year television veteran.
“I’m Brad Keselowski. The pit crew guy hauling a 20-pound piece of equipment to help change my four tires is called this,” he says. “It’s also the last name of an ‘X-Men’ actor.”
One of the contestants quickly answers correctly with, “What is a Jackman?” Of course, a jackman in NASCAR plays a pivotal role in changing the tires of a car during a pit stop. However, it is also the last name of X-Men star Hugh Jackman, who plays Wolverine/Logan in the iconic film series.
Keselowski posted the footage during the episode on Twitter. He also tags famous X-Men actor, Hugh Jackman in his latest tweet.
“Sharing a @Jeopardy clue with Wolverine? I’ll take it! @RealHughJackman” Keselowski wrote on Twitter.
NASCAR and Jeopardy! fans alike were loving the appearance from Brad Keselowski. One fan wanted to know how Keselowski landed the gig.
“Do they just come up and ask you to do these randomly Brad?” they asked. “Pretty cool to see NASCAR questions.”
Another follow proposed an idea that we all would want to see.
“Now I want to see @RealHughJackman be a Jackman for a….uh…celebrity race? Sure. Make it happen.”
NASCAR Star Speaks Out About 2022 Plans
Brad Keselowski spoke with members of the media last week but wasn’t ready to reveal everything he has in store for next year. Rumors have surfaced that the NASCAR driver will be leaving Team Penske for a driver-ownership role at Roush Fenway Racing. He currently drives the No. 2 Ford Mustang GT for Team Penske.
“I can’t talk about that, but I appreciate you asking,” Keselowski said. “When I can, I’ll tell you.”
After finishing second behind Chase Elliott in the standings in 2020, the 37-year-old driver says that he is focused on winning a championship this year.
“I think I’m in a spot where I’m just head down, finished second last year in points and won four races and looking for one more spot,” he said. “My team is pretty tough. They’ve got a really good mental toughness and they’re in a good spot.”
