A winless season in the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series will mean nothing to me

Roush Fenway Keselowski Racing co-owner and driver Brad Keselowski hasn’t had the easiest seasons in the NASCAR Cup Series this year. The driver-turned-owner ended the final race of the season on fire when his #6 Kohler Generators Ford Mustang caught fire after a buildup of rubber on the rocker panels that surrounded the hot exhaust pipe. Coupled with a withdrawal in Phoenix, 2022 overall was a disaster for RFK Racing, which also received multiple penalties from the governing body.

While Team Penske’s Joey Logano won his second championship with the team, former Penske driver Brad Keselowski was busy playing his first winless year since 2010 in the sport. When asked about stats like the one above, the 38-year-old, however, didn’t pay any attention to it.

According to the Rochester Hills, Michigan native, Keselowski’s game plan is for Roush Fenway Keselowski Racing to flourish for the long term, with tangible returns and year-over-year growth. He delved into the same theme and said:

“If I can do what I want with this company, and we’re on the right path to that, it’s not going to mean anything to me, part of the risk of taking the opportunity and making the change that I did was giving up some of these statistics, which seem good at the moment, but 10-20 years from now, I won’t remember or care about these things.”

Brad Keselowski focused on other aspects of his role as owner of RFK, saying:

“What I will remember and care about is whether I managed to get this company where it was a year ago to where I want it to be next year or something. That’s what will matter.”

While Keselowski was unable to visit Victory Lane driving for his team, Chris Buescher certainly rewarded the team with a win this season at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Brad Keselowski is looking forward to competing for wins next season

Roush Fenway Keselowski Racing owner-operator Brad Keselowski looks forward to racing for wins as he drives for his team in the 2023 Cup Series season. After his first year in charge of a Cup Series team, Keselowski eagerly anticipated the off-season to implement his learnings into the coming year.

He said:

“I think we have a lot of stuff coming up during the offseason. We have a lot of things that we are doing to progress over the last 6 to 12 months, understanding where the company is and making the moves accordingly to get the two racing teams where they can compete for wins.”

The first race of the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series season will launch at the LA Coliseum in February next year.
