NASCAR’s official Twitter account recently asked fans about their expectations for Brad Keselowski in the coming season. Keselowski, who made his move from Team Penske to Roush Fenway Keselowski Racing as a driver-owner, is set for a new phase in his career.

And one reply to that tweet was from former NASCAR driver Kenny Wallace.

Wallace wrote that Keselowski’s success in the next season depends on how good the engineers and his new team are overall. He also theorized the reason Jack Roush went for the former Penske driver as a driver and a stakeholder in his team.

According to Wallace, Roush was “looking for someone to take over the reins that has a lot of knowledge and history of running a race team and working on race cars,” a bill that Keselowski fitted in.

In his reply, Brad Keselowski thanked Wallace and expressed his faith in his new team. He also described ‘the big gamble’ that he has taken, but one about which he is feeling better and better every passing day.

It’s all shaping up nicely for Brad Keselowski and RFK Racing

As the next season brings many changes for the drivers and the teams, RFK Racing is also gearing up for the campaign with its new driver.

The team recently announced Fastenal as the sponsor for Keselowski for multiple races in the coming season. Another sponsor that they signed for the No. 6 car was Violet Defense.

Although, a blip occurred when his former team refused to let him use his name sticker which was under a certain font for copyright reasons. This was a weird thing, but the driver chose to not pursue this and use a different font, keeping it all clear in this new phase of his career.

He also expressed his thoughts on the Next Gen car as he took part in the Charlotte testing; Keselowski claimed the new cars being on edge is his favorite thing about them.
