|Brian (92) and Brad stunned the field in 2011.|
“I want to race, and race right,” said Keselowski. “If I can't do it that way, I won't do it at all.”
To that end, Keselowski has partnered with Kelly Owen, a partner in Hamilton Means Racing, to attempt qualifying for next month’s season-opening Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway.
“I'm excited about the opportunity to partner with Brian Keselowski and be a part of the Daytona 500,” said Owen. “Brian has shown the same ability as his brother, 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski, but just hasn’t had the equipment to prove it. With this partnership, we are hoping that we can get him the equipment he needs to be successful.”
There is history between the Keselowski family and Hamilton Means Racing. In June of 1994 at Pocono (PA) Raceway, Bob Keselowski – father of Brian and Brad-- made his only NASCAR Cup Series start in a No.52 car owned by Jimmy Means Racing.
In 2011, the Keselowski brothers authored the Cinderella Story of Speedweeks 2011, joining forces and drafting from the rear of their 125-mile qualifying race to push Brian's underfinanced entry into the "Great American Race."
Brian Keselowski Motorsports has secured a primary sponsor for this year's event, which will be announced shortly. The team will also partner with associate sponsor Highland Wealth Advisors, LLC; a company that works closely with high net-worth individuals to help them accomplish their personal and financial goals.
In addition, over 100 Brian Keselowski fans have signed up via social media to have their names on the BKM/HMR No.52 Toyota.
“NASCAR Fans are amazing and resourceful,” said Keselowski. “They actually talked me into having them on our car, and I am happy they did. The connections I have made with my fans have been very successful, and I’m grateful for each one who supports me and my team.”
Major and associate sponsorship opportunities are still available. For more details and information, contact BKM 's public relations and marketing representative, Jen Calandrillo at Jen.BKMotorsports@gmail.com, or call 704-912-7916.
