Aside

On the Hot Seat: Brad Keselowski is the second installment in a series examining drivers who might be in a different spot for next season.

On the Hot Seat: Brad Keselowski is the second installment in a series examining drivers who might be in a different spot for next season.  This may be due to contract prospects, developments in the sport, or evolving interests.

By all accounts, Brad Keselowski is in the prime of his career.  The 2012 NASCAR Cup Series Champion currently drives the No. 2 Ford for Team Penske, where he has been their driver since 2010.  All but one of Keselowski’s 34 Cup Series wins are with Team Penske, as well as his 2012 Championship.  Keselowski is a premier driver in the sport and can be counted on for several wins per year.  He also has two appearances in the Championship 4, most recently in 2020.  Despite all of this, there is significant uncertainty as to the prospects for Keselowski at Team Penske.

Brad Keselowski

The driver of the No. 2 Team Penske Ford wants to join an elite club.

Here are his thoughts on the possibility – and desire – to win his first Daytona 500.

“It’s definitely the one big box I don’t have checked,” said Brad Keselowski. “I’ve got the championship. I’ve won every other major but Daytona. The only other person that can claim that actively right now is Kevin Harvick and I want to join that club. It’s a big club to be in – to have all the majors and to have a championship. I know I’m right there and I want to make it happen and feel like I’ve done a lot of the right things to make it happen. I haven’t been perfect, but it’s certainly part of the source of frustration, for sure.”
