Six-hundred miles. If you drove from the Murphy to Manteo, N.C., you wouldn’t hit that distance. Brad Keselowski and 39 other drivers accomplished that feat in one night during the Coca-Cola 600.

That requires a ton of stamina, focus and carbohydrates. Why carbs? Well, let’s just say there are a few pounds shed during the course of the longest race on the NASCAR schedule.

To prove that fact, Brad Keselowski did a science project before and after the race. The results were staggering.

Keselowski’s results may be a surprise to sports fans who don’t take NASCAR seriously, but the Coca-Cola 600 is clearly a test of athleticism.

While he wasn’t able to drive to Victory Lane in Charlotte, Keselowki is already a two-time winner this season at Las Vegas and Talladega. After shedding a few pounds on Sunday night, he’ll have a great chance to gain a few pounds back during Memorial Day.
