What makes his story and the Keselowski’s romance with automobiles even more interesting is the fact that it goes back to their grandfather John Keselowski, who started racing motorcycles in the 1950s before moving on to production cars.
Brad grew up in his father’s racing car workshop before he could get his hands on the wheels. By 2006 the family business went bankrupt, and even after he sold everything, the debts remained. It would be Brad whose career began with the family working as a team to get them out of all their financial difficulties, even though his mother insisted as a child that he owed them nothing but love and respect.
