The primary sponsor for that weekend is Wabash International. For the uninitiated, the company is the largest producer of semi-trailers and liquid transportation systems in America.

Admittedly, Keselowski is simply counting the days until the end of the season. This is because he will be leaving the Team Penske organization after the 2021 season and joining Roush Fenway Racing.

Keselowski currently sits 9th in the championship standings with four races until the Playoffs. Since he is well in the Top-10, he has qualified for the Playoffs.

Although he knows that this is his final season with the team, the 2012 Cup Series champion will want to go out on a high note.

What to expect from Brad Keselowski at Watkins Glen?

Admittedly, Brad Keselowski has never won at The Glen, but he has finished 2nd at the track three times in a row. The big question is, can he finally get the monkey off his back in his final season with Penske?

Of course, NASCAR has not released that starting grid for Watkins Glen. However, Keselowski finished in 3rd place at New Hampshire, which gives him a good shot at a higher starting grid slot. In other words, he could either be on the front row or on the second row.
