The 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) season marked Brad Keselowski’s 10th full season driving for Roger Penske. With his first victory of the year at Atlanta Motor Speedway, the Rochester Hills, Michigan native surpassed Mark Donohue as the all-time winningest driver in the history of Team Penske.
While those milestones are certainly impressive, Keselowski is more focused on delivering another MENCS championship for the Mooresville, N.C.-based organization.
During the 2018 season, Keselowski’s accomplishments certainly placed him in serious title contention. He scored three dramatic wins and earned a trip to the NASCAR Playoffs for the fifth consecutive season. Keselowski advanced to the Round of 8 before misfortune in three consecutive races derailed his championship hopes, as he completed the season ranked eighth in the final driver standings.
For the 2019 season, Paul Wolfe returns for his ninth year as crew chief for the No. 2 Ford team, with a new challenge of adapting to much-anticipated new Ford Mustang in MENCS competition. The Keselowski-Wolfe duo is now the longest tenured driver-crew chief pairing in NASCAR’s premiere series.
Having been raised in a racing family, Keselowski embodies the “Effort Equals Results” mentality that is a common theme throughout the Team Penske organization. The 2012 NASCAR Champion worked full-time for his family’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series team while managing his own short track career racing Factory Stocks and Limited and Super Late Models.
Away from the racetrack, Keselowski married his longtime girlfriend Paige White in February of 2017 and the two live in North Carolina with their daughter Scarlett. Both Brad and Paige are 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.
