Brad Keselowski has a history as an owner in NASCAR. He founded Brad Keselowski Racing in the NASCAR Truck Series from 2007 to 2017, forming an impressive team of Ford drivers which includes Chase Briscoe, & defending Xfinity Series champion Austin Cindric.
The 37-y-o has been offered a full-time Cup series car with Roush Fenway Racing (RFR) starting next season 2022 in a contract that would also include part ownership in a renamed team called (Roush-Fenway-Keselowski) Racing, multiple sources with knowledge of the deal have confirmed.
Brad would become the driver of the No. 6 Ford ride, however it remains uncertain how much of an ownership percentage Keselowski would have in the renamed team RFK.
Keselowski’s most recent contract with Team Penske is set to expired at the end of the 2021 campaign after both sides agreed to a one-year deal covering 2020 season only.
In corresponding with Brad K and his agent over the last day, neither would comment to me on possibility of ownership/driving for Roush. It is not rare for them not to comment on those type of things so whether that means in discussion stage or the done stage is unclear to me. https://t.co/SJrYoSEKKJ
