Brad Keselowski will leave Penske Racing at the end of the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series season, a team which he had driven for since the start of the 2010 season. Team Penske confirmed the move this morning, stating that he was leaving the team “to pursue other opportunities within the sport.” Keselowski released a tweet earlier this morning regarding his move away from Penske Racing.
While Austin Cindric was set to drive the famed No. 21 Ford starting in 2022, Cindric will move to the famed No. 2 Ford Mustang in response to the departure of Keselowski. In a release from Team Penske today, Cindric stated, “Throughout my NASCAR career, I’ve grown a lot as a driver and an individual. There are so many individuals within the walls of Team Penske that have elevated me to a level that matches this opportunity. The support towards my development from Roger, Team Penske, and all of our partners has been the leading factor towards race wins and a championship. The No. 2 car is iconic to this sport and is a number that represents the foundation of this team. It is a great honor and a great responsibility to continue that role. As 2022 gets closer, I am excited to embrace that. Until then, my focus remains on winning another Xfinity Series Championship.”
Unannounced, as of yet, is where Brad Keselowski will end up in 2022. Rumors have circulated that Brad will be joining the Roush-Fenway Racing organization in an owner/driver role, but nothing has been released to confirm or deny this rumor as of yet. Stay tuned for more information on that story, when it is released!
