Brian Keselowski to Drive for Brad Keselowski Racing at Talladega

On Thursday it was announced that a set of brothers will be helping each other out for the upcoming NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Fred’s 250 Powered by Coca-Cola at Talladega Superspeedway.

Brad Keselowski announced via his blog that brother Brian Keselowski will drive his No.29 Ford F-150 in the Oct. 24 event. Brian Keselowski replaces Austin Theriault, who is still recovering from an accident at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Keselowski will join teammate Tyler Reddick, who drives the No. 19 full-time for the team, in the race.

It will be the first career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start for the elder Keselowski, who has 63 NASCAR Xfinity and three NASCAR Sprint Cup Series starts under his belt. He also has 39 ARCA Series starts,  including three victories.

Brian Keselowski’s signature moment in NASCAR’s top-three divisions happened in 2011 when he made his first, and so far only, Daytona 500 driving for his family owned team, K-Automotive. He finished fifth in his Duel race that year, and the opportunity allowed him to receive sponsorship from Discount Tire. He finished 40th in the Daytona 500.

The No. 29 truck has two victories on the season and currently sits seventh in NCWTS owner points.

Seems the most popular thing about Nascar is keeping it all in the family.
