It has been confirmed that Brad Keselowski will not continue with Team Penske from the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series season.
The 2012 Cup Series champion was in his last year of contract with the team and has decided to look for new challenges elsewhere.
Penske president Tim Cindric was sad to let one of his best drivers go but said that he understands Keselowski’s decision.
“I hate to see him go, but I understand as a driver that his aspirations are beyond being a driver,” Cindric said. “He and Roger [Penske] had discussions about that, kind of on and off over the years. It seemed like it was more of an aspiration than something that would come between him driving for us or not.”
While the loss of a driver of Keselowski’s caliber is a big loss for the team, but they have already replaced him with a driver with a lot of potential in Austin Cindric. He is the defending Xfinity Series champion.
As for Keselowski, it has been widely rumored that he will move to the Roush Fenway Racing team in a driver/owner capacity.
In the 2021 Cup Series season, Keselowski has one win so far and sits at 9th position in the Series standings.
