On December 2, 2019, Brad and Paige Keselowski announced the birth of their daughter, Autumn, meaning that the North Carolina couple now has a second bundle of joy and four-year-old Scarlett Keselowski has a baby sister to play with.
In today’s economy, taking care of a family of four can be a challenge. But, as a driver at NASCAR’s highest level, Brad Keselowski isn’t exactly strapped for cash. In fact, the driver of the No. 2 Ford Mustang for Team Penske makes BANK. We’re talking millions and millions. How exactly did the renowned NASCAR driver get to where he is today? Let’s take a look!
Brad Keselowski’s NASCAR Career
Born in Rochester Hills, Michigan, Bradly Aaron Keselowski comes from a racing family. In 2004, the then 20-year-old Keselowski started his NASCAR career as the driver of the No. 29 Ford F-150 for K-Automotive Motorsports in the Craftsman Truck Series. K-Automotive Motorsports, which is now just Keselowski Motorsports, was owned and operated by Brad’s dad, Bob Keselowski, and is now run by Brad’s brother Brian.
As his stock grew, Keselowski eventually parted ways from the family racing team. From 2006-2010, Keselowski started to see more success on the track during stints with Phoenix Racing and Hendrick Motorsports. But, it was when he signed to Team Penske (which, at the time, was Penske Racing) that Keselowski really came into his own as a professional racer.
In 2010, the three-time most popular driver won the NASCAR Nationwide Series (NASCAR Xfinity Series) championship. Two years later, Keselowski won the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series) championship, and, if you’ve seen his post-championship interview, you know how much the guy likes his beer.
If you know anything about Keselowski, you also know that he loves him some truck racing. So much so, that, in 2007, he started Brad Keselowski Racing, which competed in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. However, his time as a racing team owner came to an end in 2017, when BKR suspended operations.
But, back to Keselowski’s accolades as a driver. In 376 Cup Series races run, he has 30 wins, 186 top-10 finishes, and 17 poles. As for the Xfinity Series, Keselowski has 39 wins, 173 top-10s, and 22 poles out of 256 races. He also has one win, 15 top-10s, and one pole in the Truck Series.
Brad Keselowski’s Net Worth
Depending on what sites you check, Brad Keselowski has an estimated net worth ranging between $15 million and $25 million. In 2018 alone, Keselowski raked in $10.4 million in total earnings, with $9.2 million coming from salary and winnings and $1.2 million coming from endorsements and licensing.
Speaking of 2018, that’s also the year that Keselowski invested more than $10 million to launch Keselowski Advanced Manufacturing, which is an advanced contract company that works with aerospace, military, and oil and gas companies. The guy clearly has plenty more years of racing left in him, but there’s nothing wrong with not putting all your eggs in the NASCAR basket.
