Brad Keselowski has easily established himself as one of the veterans of the NASCAR garage, and one of the most respected, both on and off the track. Now in his third season as a co-owner of RFK Racing, Keselowski has remained a consistent face and contender at NASCAR’s highest level for the past decade, having tallied 35 wins in NASCAR Cup Season competition while qualifying for the NASCAR Playoffs nine of the last 10 seasons.

A two-time NASCAR Champion himself, Keselowski helped turn RFK into a real threat in 2023 as both of its Cup Series entries advanced to the NASCAR Playoffs. His teammate, Chris Buescher, won three races in a span of five weeks as the No. 17 team ultimately finished seventh in the points standings, just missing out on a Championship 4 berth. Keselowski finished just behind in eighth, as the two were in the mix all season long, earning the eye of the Cup garage, media, and fans alike.

Keselowski’s 14th full season in the Cup Series saw the No. 6 earn 16 top-10 results, seven of which were in the top five. He and the No. 6 team finished 10th in average race finish, the second-biggest improvement in NASCAR from 2022. He and the team’s qualifying efforts improved dramatically, ranking 12th in qualifying results, also the second-largest jump in the garage.

Keselowski’s pit crew earned the Mechanix Wear Most Valuable Pit Crew Award, a veteran group that continually kept and pushed him into positions of success throughout the 36-race season. Despite not visiting victory lane himself, Keselowski notably pushed Buescher to victory lane in the Daytona summer event, firmly locking both Fords into the playoff picture. He was the winner of six stages throughout the season, tied for third-most of any driver in the field.

In some ways, Brad Keselowski’s 2022 season had a rookie stripe in his first year as driver and co-owner at RFK Racing. A rookie owner, first time joining a new team in more than a decade, and a new, NextGen race car were all fresh starts and a learning curve.

The 2022 season got off to a roaring start with Keselowski winning the opening Duel race ahead of the Daytona 500, as RFK swept both qualifying races at the lead in to NASCAR’s version of the Super Bowl. The No. 6 team backed that up with a ninth-place run in the 500 itself.

Keselowski picked up his first win as an owner at the Bristol Night Race when teammate Chris Buescher stunned the field and won a playoff race, as RFK led more than half the laps that night. Keselowski backed that up a week later by earning the pole at Texas Motor Speedway, one of nine top-10 qualifying efforts total for the No. 6 team.

The 2021 season capped off what was a 12-year tenure with Roger Penske as he advanced to the Round of 8 in the NASCAR Playoffs and finished sixth in the final points standings. Keselowski added to his win total by taking the checkered flag at Talladega in the spring race, one of his 17 top-10s on the season, 10 of which were inside the top five. He backed that up with a runner-up result in the fall at Talladega as he and the No. 2 team put together an impressive run with seven top-10s in the playoffs.

Keselowski closed the 2020 Cup Series season ranked second in the standings for his best season finish since he won the title in 2012. He also produced an average finishing position of 10.1 to equal his career-best mark. After he earned a spot in the NASCAR Playoffs for the ninth time in the last 10 seasons, Keselowski raced his way into the Championship 4 as he advanced to the final round for the second time since the Cup Series’ elimination format was introduced in 2014.

Keselowski and the No. 2 Ford team captured four NCS victories in 2020, highlighted by an overtime win in the Coca-Cola 600 on Memorial Day weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The performance gave Keselowski victories in three of NASCAR’s major events (in 2018 he won the Southern 500 and the Brickyard 400) and it marked his first career triumph in NASCAR’s longest race. Keselowski won at Bristol Motor Speedway one week later and he also produced dominant victories at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and Richmond Raceway. Keselowski shined on short tracks in 2020 as he led all series competitors with the most wins (two), top-five finishes (four) and top-10 results (four) on the smaller circuits. He also won three or more races for the fifth consecutive season and qualified for the NASCAR Playoffs for the seventh consecutive year.

Keselowski produced some memorable victories for Team Penske over the years, including some historic performances. In 2019, his first win of the season came at Atlanta and it marked Keselowski’s 60th career victory with Team Penske as he became the winningest driver in team history. Keselowski scored dramatic wins on three consecutive weekends in 2018 that were also landmark victories for the team. He won the Bojangles’ Southern 500 on Labor Day weekend at Darlington Raceway to mark Team Penske’s first victory at the historic speedway since Bobby Allison swept both races there in 1975. Just a few days later, Keselowski gave team owner Roger Penske his first-ever Cup Series win at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. And less than a week later, Keselowski won at Las Vegas Motor Speedway to produce the 500th victory in the team’s storied history.

The first big break of Keselowski’s young career came in 2007 when he competed for Germain Racing at Memphis Motorsports Park. He won the pole and led 62 laps, a performance that ultimately landed him a ride in Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s No. 88 NXS full-time entry just two weeks later. In 2008, Keselowski won two races for JR Motorsports and in 2009 claimed his first NCS victory driving for James Finch at Talladega Superspeedway. Keselowski caught the eye of Roger Penske, who hired him to compete full-time for his team in 2010. Since he joined Team Penske, Keselowski won a remarkable 67 races (combined in NCS and NXS competition), the team’s first Cup Series championship, an NXS Driver title and four NXS Owner Championships.

Keselowski’s first foray into ownership lasted 10 years (2007-17) as he helped kick start the careers of many NASCAR stars to date, owning Brad Keselowski Racing in the NASCAR Truck Series. Ryan Blaney, the most recent NASCAR Cup Champion, got his start in NASCAR under Keselowski’s leadership, driving the No. 29 truck for two seasons before his advancement into the NCS later. Three of the most recent NASCAR Xfinity Series champions – Tyler Reddick, Austin Cindric and Daniel Hemric – all drove under Keselowski’s truck team banner. Add Ross Chastain and Chase Briscoe to that list of young drivers that were once in a BKR truck, all of which are now growing their careers at NASCAR’s top levels.

Away from the track, Keselowski married his longtime girlfriend Paige White in February of 2017 and the two live in North Carolina with their young daughters Scarlett and Autumn, and son, Maize. Brad and Paige are both active with Brad Keselowski’s Checkered Flag Foundation, which honors and assists those who have sacrificed greatly for our country. Since 2010, the foundation has supported over 50 organizations and individuals in order to help veterans and first responders during their road to recovery.
