Having been teammates since 2013, Joey Logano is certainly going to miss Brad Keselowski next season.

The two have combined for 59 Cup race wins together at Team Penske. However, this partnership will be broken next season as Keselowski looks to pave a different path with Roush Fenway.

In a recent interview with SiriusXM, Logano surprisingly opened about his relationship with Keselowski and what he will miss about the current No. 2 driver.

“Brad and I, I feel like are very close teammates,” Logano said. “Obviously, we race each other hard. We have in the past. But we have a relationship off the race track that I think we actually really care for each other as a person. Talking to him about this and understanding his decisions and what’s coming his way, I’m excited for him. I think it’s a great opportunity for him.

“Selfishly, I enjoyed having Brad as a teammate. I felt like he really pushed me along in different ways, and we complemented each other because, in ways, we’re similar, but, in ways, we couldn’t be more different than each other and I think that was kind of a healthy thing.”

While Team Penske might be losing a very talented driver in Keselowski, but Logano believes that his other teammates, Ryan Blaney and Austin Cindric, have their own strength and will push him to perform better.

“With Ryan Blaney and Austin Cindric, they have their own ways to push you along, too, in that we can all complement each other and make each other better,” Logano said. “That’s what you want in a teammate. I don’t want to be the guy that is light years ahead of my teammates because who’s pushing you? You want teammates that can push you along and make you a better race-car driver. And that’s ultimately going to make the company better.”

This is not to take away anything from Blaney and Cindric but Keselowski is a NASCAR veteran, a serial winner and a Cup Series champion. It will be interesting to see how Logano performs with Keselowski in the team.
