First and foremost, the most obvious one is to win the 2021 Cup Series championship. The 37-year-old won the Cup Series championship in 2012 and will want a second title under his belt.

The next item of business is a Daytona 500 win. As it turns out, he is one of three Cup champions to never win the Daytona 500. The other two champion drivers are Joe Gibbs Racing duo, Martin Truex Jr, and Kyle Busch.

What other objectives does Brad Keselowski have?

In addition to that, the Michigan native also confessed that he would love to have a win on home soil. Out of all his years in the sport, he has never won at home. Brad Keselowski has managed at least three second-place finishes on his home track. While that is an impressive feat, he will want to visit Victory Lane at some point.

Last but not least, Keselowski is eager to snatch a Cup Series victory on a road course. The closest he ever got was second place at Watkins Glen. In fact, it is probably his best track because he finished second on three consecutive occasions. Fortunately for him, the NASCAR paddock is going to visit Watkins Glen in 2021.

This means that the Team Penske driver will finally get another chance to bag a road course win. Of course, there are other tracks where he can make his mark.

Who knows? Maybe he could make history as the first NASCAR driver to win at the Circuit of the Americas. At the end of the day, he will get a chance to fulfill his 2021 Cup Series wish list.
