Since coming to Team Penske in 2010, all Brad Keselowski has done is win races and championships.
In his eight-plus seasons with the organization, Keselowski has won 53 races and been part of six championships between the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup and NASCAR XFINITY Series. He has won 30 times and captured the NXS driver’s championship in 2010 while being part of a team that has helped owner Roger Penske win four owner’s titles. On the Cup side, Keselowski has won 23 times and claimed the 2012 series championship.
He advanced to the Championship 4 last year in Cup after winning three times and was part of a team that captured the NXS owner’s championship.
A Michigan native who grew up in a racing family, Keselowski wasted little time making a name for himself as he won his first Cup race at Talladega in April 2009 in only his fifth start. He became the 25th driver to win at least one race in all three of NASCAR’s top touring series by capturing the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event at Bristol in August 2015, and is part of the first father-son duo to achieve that distinction. His dad, Bob Keselowski, won at Richmond in 1997.
- Keselowski was raised in an environment where spending time at the race shop and the track was just a way of life. His father, Bob, made 86 starts over five years in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. His uncle, Ron, started 68 races at the Cup level from 1970-74 and posted a pair of top-five finishes in that time.
- Keselowski drove the truck operated by his family’s team for eight NCWTS races in 2004. The following season, he ran the full truck schedule and had a best finish of seventh, which he recorded in February at Daytona International Speedway.
- In addition to his impressive performance on the track, Keselowski does just as much off it through his Checkered Flag Foundation, which supports military personnel, first responders, and others who have made sacrifices for America.
