Brad Keselowski's first day of testing at Watkins Glen International didn't go according to plan.

On Tuesday afternoon during the first of a two-day NASCAR Sprint Cup Series test, Keselowski crashed hard after a brake failure going into Turn 1 on a newly repaved Watkins Glen road course.

According to Team Penske officials, Keselowski was evaluated and released from the infield care center.

Afterward, Keselowski tweeted a picture of his destroyed No. 2 Team Penske Ford, his mangled steering wheel and a GoPro video showing the moment of impact from inside the car.

This isn't the first time the 2012 Sprint Cup champion has found trouble during a test session at a road course just days before a race at Pocono Raceway.

In August 2011, Keselowski suffered one broken ankle, one cut ankle, myriad bruises and bangs, and a cut and blistered right hand during a test at Road America in preparation for Watkins Glen.

Miraculously with all the injuries, Keselowski came back that same weekend at Pocono to win his second career Sprint Cup race.
