What’s Up With Brian Keselowski?

RICHMOND, Va. – While Brian Keselowski has been seldom seen on the Cup circuit over the course of the summer, the other Cinderella story of this year’s Daytona 500 has returned to the seat, running a start-and-park entry for Key Motorsports in the Nationwide Series [No. 47].

A number of folks from the K-Automotive operation are taking part in running the car, including the gasman from the No. 92 Cup team and father Bob, who is atop the box as crew chief. The ride has given some stability to Brian, who “has the ride as long as he wants it.”

On the Cup side, the driver has started taking on a new role, spotting for the No. 55 team of JJ Yeley. That’s not to say the driver has signed off on Cup racing altogether; the series rookie is working on a potential sponsorship package for the upcoming return to Loudon later this month.

“If it comes through, we’ll race,” said a team official. “If not, he’s got the No. 47.”
