It’s official: Brad Keselowski joins Roush Fenway Racing as a part owner

Brad Keselowski is officially a part owner of Roush Fenway Racing. 

The team announced Keselowski’s arrival on Tuesday at the NASCAR Hall of Fame. The 2012 NASCAR Cup Series champion will drive the No. 6 car in 2022 and beyond as he moves over from Team Penske. 

Team Penske announced that Keselowski would be leaving the team at the end of the season a week ago when it said that Austin Cindric would drive the No. 2 and Harrison Burton would drive the Wood Brothers’ No. 21 in 2022.

Keselowski’s move makes him the second active Cup Series star to take an ownership stake in a team in the last two seasons. Denny Hamlin and Michael Jordan formed 23XI Racing ahead of the 2021 season and hired Bubba Wallace to drive the No. 23 car. Keselowski is a minority owner of Roush Fenway Racing and will be a part of the team’s competition committee.

Roush has fielded two cars for Ryan Newman and Chris Buescher over the last two seasons. The addition of Keselowski helps position the organization for the future and NASCAR’s new Cup Series car set to be introduced next season. Majority team owner Jack Roush is 79 and Keselowski now becomes the obvious long-term successor as the face of the team.
