Roger Penske's NASCAR team hopes for first victory Sunday in Homestead, Florida

HOMESTEAD, FL (AP) - The most successful team owner in open-wheel history has little to show for his 40 years in NASCAR.
Roger Penske has won 23 national championships in open-wheel racing along with 15 Indianapolis 500s.

His NASCAR resume hardly compares.

Although his stock-car organization had 61 wins before Brad Keselowski arrived, it only contended for a championship once -- in 1993 when Rusty Wallace finished second to Dale

.Keselowski could change that for "The Captain."

Keselowski takes a 20-point lead over Jimmie Johnson into Sunday's season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway, where 15th place or better will give Penske his first Sprint Cup title.

It would be his first NASCAR championship if Keselowski hadn't won him a second-tier Nationwide title in 2010 -- his first season with Penske Racing.
