Impromptu Team Penske Celebration And Farewell

The three Team Penske drivers – Joey Logano, Brad Keselowski and Ryan Blaney – celebrated Keselowski’s final “start” for the team with an impromptu three-car special formation at Wednesday night’s Burnout on Broadway in Nashville’s famed tourist district.

The idea to coordinate the championship week celebration was actually Logano’s wife and the three drivers said Thursday morning, with smiles, that they decided to alter the regular plan on the fly, in tribute to Keselowski who won the 2012 NASCAR Cup Series championship for Penske – the first NASCAR Cup Series title for the esteemed team.

Logano smiled and joked about the discussion among the teammates during the driver’s safety meeting for the famed “Burnout” sessions, implying it would be easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

“Joey wanted to do something unique and cool with all three cars and we were trying to find something fun and he brainstormed and we executed, so it was fine.” Keselowski said with a grin.

“That’s a screenshot in my mind. It was cool and I’m glad we got to do that,” said Keselowski, who moves from the Penske operation to an ownership position with the newly-named Roush Fenway Keselowski Racing (RFK Racing) team for the 2022 season.
