Brad Keselowski might have won the two of the last three races, but his future with Team Penske is yet to be clear.
Brad Keselowski might have a solid chance of winning the Cup Series this season after winning the two of the last three races, but the situation regarding his future has not been resolved yet.
This is the last year of his contract with Team Penske and the extension talks haven’t progressed yet. Team Penske boss Roger Penske shed some light on the negotiation process in an interview with SiriusXM NASCAR Radio:
“We certainly want to work something out with Brad, that’s meaningful for him and meaningful for us.”
In an interview with Motorsport, Keselowski spoke about his future and the desire to race further for Team Penske.
“Well, I know winning never hurts. I wish I had more news, but I don’t. So, yeah, winning is not a bad thing. I hope to continue to compete at a very high level and be able to win races for a long time.
“We’ve got a race win at a major on a team that’s really just starting to click together. This team has a lot of potential. My goodness, on pit road, they were on fire. They put us in a spot to win.
“I hope that I get to take and make something of that for years to come. But it’s not all up to me. A lot of things have to come together, whether it’s sponsors or whatnot, management things. That hasn’t happened yet.
“I hope it does because this is my 30th win at the Cup level with Team Penske. That’s pretty special. I think I got another 30 left in me. I’d like to have the chance at that.”
There are rumors that Keselowski might replace Jimmie Johnson as the #48 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet driver after Johnson retires at the end of the season.
