The Team Penske driver started the ‘state-of-the-art 3D printing’ company in the year 2018. And incidentally, it is located in the same base that once housed the Brad Keselowski Racing team.

The 36-year-old has now revealed that the business environment at his firm is quite exciting. By the looks of it, Keselowski is also enjoying being a firm owner alongside managing his commitments in the Cup Series.

Brad Keselowski reveals his company is building ‘game-changing’ equipment

Speaking in an interview, Keselowski stated, “Nothing happens as fast as we want it to, but we’re riding a pretty big wave right now. It’s not much of a secret if you follow my LinkedIn account, but we’re really, really into space right now.

“Very committed to it. We’re working with several key launch-related companies. And building some very high-end equipment to make their launches possible in ways that it wasn’t possible before.

“So that’s pretty much dominated my business. And there’s a lot of runway left to go there as space just continues to take off.”

Following the Championship 4 race at Phoenix, Keselowski had posted about jobs at his company from his Twitter handle.

Considering many NASCAR teams’ employees lost their jobs due to the pandemic, he had personally vowed to review resumes that had been dropped off at his building in Statesville.

“We’re building a lot of really cool stuff that’s game-changing in its own way, so that’s exciting. I can’t really go into the things that we’re building, but that is what it is,” concluded Keselowski on the topic.

Team Penske’s cars looked quite solid throughout the season. And that was a notable reason as to why both Keselowski and Joey Logano made it to the final round at the Phoenix Raceway.

However, the former came up just short in his efforts to seal the 2020 Cup Series title. But if he can launch a title challenge as successful as his company, there is no reason why he cannot bring the trophy home next year.
