Racing has been a family affair for the Keselowskis. Brad Keselowski’s father, mother, sisters, brother and uncle have all been a part of racing through owning, operating, and/or driving for the family team.
In 2007, Brad continued this tradition through the formation of Brad Keselowski Racing (BKR), of which he is the sole owner. During the team’s inaugural season, BKR competed in select events in the ARCA Racing Series. 2008 saw BKR expand its operation to include participation in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. The team continued to build its program over the subsequent seasons, and, in 2012, BKR was in contention for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series owner point championship and the organization earned its first win with Ryan Blaney at Iowa Speedway. In both 2014 and 2015, BKR had full-time drivers in contention for the NCWTS driver point championship, finishing second in the standings both years.
Based in Statesville, N.C., BKR currently fields two full-time entries, the No. 19 and No. 29 Ford F-150s, in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series with support from industry-leading companies and brands Cooper Standard, Draw-Tite, Reese Towpower, California Clean Power, Broken Bow Records and Penske. For the first time in its history, the roster includes two full-time drivers, Daniel Hemric and Tyler Reddick, both competing in pursuit of the NCWTS championship.
