It’s Official: Keselowski Signs With Penske

keselowski2Brad Keselowski has officially signed with Penske Championship Racing, agreeing to drive PCR’s no. 12 Dodge in the Sprint Cup Series in 2010. There is no word on David Stremme’s plans for 2010.

He will also run a full schedule in the Nationwide Series in 2010 for PCR, presumably in an attempt to capture the elusive championship. There is no word on whether he will run a second PCR car or replace Justin Allgaier in the No. 12.

Roger Penske said:

We are very excited to welcome Brad [Keselowski] to the Penske Racing family. Brad has shown terrific success on track the past several years and has quickly established himself as one of the top young stars in racing. He comes from an impressive family background in motorsports. He is a proven winner and a welcome addition to our team.

Keselowski said:

Penske Racing is one of the top teams in all of motorsports and I am honored to join Roger Penske’s organization and compete for wins with his Cup and Nationwide Series teams. This is a great opportunity for me to continue competing in the Nationwide Series and to run my first full season in the Cup Series with a strong and experienced team.

    What do you make of this news? Is it a good move for Keselowski?

    I think he should have stayed with JR Motorsports.

    I think that, given what was out there, it was a pretty good move for Keselowski. It might have been better for him to join Stewart Haas Racing, but far as I know, a ride wasn’t offered there.

    He wasn’t going to win again with Phoenix Racing. The team simply doesn’t have the resources to contend consistently.

    Penske Championship Racing has had its ups and downs, but as an organization, it’s relatively competitive. Sam Hornish Jr is having a very good season, and Kurt Busch is going to make the Chase this year.

    Of all the options out there, this was the best one. It would have been nice to see him stay with JR Motorsports, but he had to move up now, when his stock is at its highest. With the victory still fresh in people’s minds, he had to strike while the iron was hot.

    I think it is a good move for him to get in the Sprint Cup series. He deserves it.
