Team Penske Boss Gives an Update on the Future of Brad Keselowski

Indy 500

Yesterday, Team Penske boss Roger Penske gave a much-awaited update on the future of Brad Keselowski with the team. Brad’s contract expires at the end of 2020 and negotiations for an extension are still underway.

Roger Penske said in an interview with SiriusXM NASCAR Radio, “We certainly want to work something out with Brad, that’s meaningful for him and meaningful for us”

Keselowski’s agreement with Team Penske expires at the end of the current season. However, there doesn’t appear to be any urgency to make a new deal. In February, Keselowski’s teammate Ryan Blaney agreed to an agreement expansion. Contract terms weren’t announced by Team Penske authorities but it is a multi-year deal. After that, all eyes were on Brad’s possible contract extension with Team Penske.

Brad will take over the Hendricks seat after Johnson retires: Rumors

Keselowski has been reputed to be taking over for retiring Hendrick Motorsports driver Jimmie Johnson. However, Hendrick hasn’t revealed anything about Johnson’s possible replacement. In an interview, Keselowski stated that he isn’t campaigning for the Hendricks seat, or some other seat.

He said, “I’m not dialing out, yet on the off chance that somebody dials in, I will absolutely tune in, without a doubt.”

Additionally, there were talks that Keselowski will retire at the end of the 2020 season. However, he posted a tweet denying his retirement rumors on Twitter.

Recently, Brad said in an interview that the decision on whether he stays at Team Penske for 2021 is not up to him. He reveals that he hasn’t signed a contract extension for the next year and things can go either way.

In the Coca-Cola 600, Chase Elliott made an unfortunate decision to stay out on old tires in the last hours of the race. The decision backfired and Brad Keselowski successfully held off Elliott and Jimmie Johnson to win the prestigious race.
