CONCORD, N.C. — Brad Keselowski deflected reports Friday night that he’s set to leave Team Penske for a driver-ownership role at Roush Fenway Racing for the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series season.
Keselowski was asked about next season after Cup Series practice for Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. His Team Penske No. 2 Ford ranked 22nd in the session.

“I can’t talk about that, but I appreciate you asking,” Keselowski said. “When I can, I’ll tell you.”
Keselowski maintains his focus is still on winning a championship in 2021 after finishing second to Chase Elliott in the drivers’ standings last year.
“I think I’m in a spot where I’m just head down, finished second last year in points and won four races and looking for one more spot,” Keselowski said. “… My team is pretty tough. They’ve got a really good mental toughness and they’re in a good spot.”
Keselowski, 37, is currently in his 11th season driving the No. 2 Ford for team owner Roger Penske. Keselowski has earned one championship in 2012 and 35 race victories to date.
When asked for a timetable on when an announcement can be expected, Keselowski said: “As soon as I’m allowed to.”
