At 37 years of age, questions of retirement would certainly have hit Brad Keselowski at some point.
Right now, he is in his last year with Team Penske. And, he seems to be easing into management with his owner/driver position with Roush Fenway Racing team, starting from the 2022 Cup Series season.
Recently, he spoke with former NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. about his prospect of retiring from racing. He said:
“I don’t know how many years I have left, driving. When that day comes, where I’m not a driver any more, I just can’t imagine picking up and waving goodbye. I’m sure you [Dale Earnhardt Jr] understand, and so I wanted to make sure that I had a vessel to where, if I left the sport, it was because I decided to. Not because there was no option available to me.”
In terms of just racing capabilities, the 2012 Cup Series champion still has a lot to offer. He had one win in the regular season and is close to making it to the next round of the Cup playoffs as he sits fourth in the standings, 11 points above the cut line. He came second best to Bubba Wallace in the Talladega Superspeedway.
However, it remains to be seen if Keselowski will be as competitive with his new team next season. If he continues to maintain his current standards, then there is no reason to believe that he will be going away from the sports anytime soon.
