Brad Keselowski Branches Out With New Racing Challenge

Getty Brad Keselowski has taken on a new racing challenge.

RFK Racing‘s Brad Keselowski is taking on a new challenge during the NASCAR offseason. He will make his first-ever start in the 55th annual Snowball Derby.

The 2012 Cup Series champion announced the news on November 22. He confirmed that he will take on the race in Pensacola, Fla., for the first time and that he will join FURY Race Cars for the event.

“Hey, race fans, Brad Keselowski here,” he said in a Twitter video. “I’m excited to announce that I’ll be running on December 4th in the 55th annual Snowball Derby. So come check us out exclusively on, where you’ll see me in this No. 6 Fr8Auctions Ford.”

The Snowball Derby presents Keselowski with an opportunity to test himself in a different racing atmosphere. He will also have an opportunity to reunite with Tony Eury Sr. and Tony Eury Jr.

Keselowski had both men as his crew chief at different points in his career. Tony Sr. guided him to six Xfinity Series wins in 2008-2009 while they were both with JR Motorsports.

Tony Jr. guided Keselowski during three Cup Series races in 2009. This partnership included a 13th-place run at Kansas Speedway and a 12th-place run at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
