Brad Keselowski decided to end the Brad Keselowski Racing team for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, and the primary factor for the decision was monetary.
However, there is another major factor that Keselowski discussed regarding his future in the sport.
According to NASCAR.com, Keselowski said he eventually wants to own his own NASCAR Cup Series team, and he plans to use his truck series racing facility for that team in the future.
Keselowski admitted owning his own team is something that would happen "many years down the line," but it's clear he's already put a considerable amount of thought into the idea.
"We're not ready to announce anything, but I know where I want to go and we're in the middle of putting all that together," Keselowski said. "Until it's together, I don't want to get too far down the road with it, but I know that I'm committed to the facility and the community to have an operational and functioning business in that area and plan to do just that. Hopefully, that opens a spot to retain a good number of our people."
He said he knows there's a chance he might not be able to own a team one day, but he wants to put himself in position to where it's his decision as to whether or not he can own a team.
"The biggest thing is I want to be positioned to have the best opportunities possible when I get done being a race car driver, and one of those opportunities is to be a team owner," Keselowski said. "For that to have any chance of being successful, it's going to be critical for me to have all of my ducks in a row specific to having other income-generating businesses."
Keselowski's Truck Series team wasn't making any profits, which led to the decision to cancel the operation. Owning a Cup Series team would be a big deal, but it's likely several years away from happening.
