2010 looks like it might be Brad Keselowskis year to take his famous name to new NASCAR heights. Penske Racing announced two key hires on the Keselowski team for next year: Jay Guy will be his crew chief for the NASCAR Cup Series #12 Penske Dodge while Paul Wolfe will lead his Nationwide Series #22 Dodge team. (Former Cup Series crew chief Roy McCauley moves to a leadership role within Penske.)
Keselowski will be entering his first full-time season in the Cup Series, looking to capitalize on the momentum he gained from a successful limited schedule in 2009 where he captured a thrilling win at Talladega along the way. On the Nationwide side, following his impressive 2009 showing, Keselowski will continue driving in the series full-time in his bid for his first championship.
“Both Jay and Paul have a lot of experience throughout all levels of motorsports competition, and they each seem to get the most out of the teams and drivers that they work with, ” Keselowski said. Jay Guy has worked on the Truck, Nationwide, and Cup Series and was most recently crew chief of Regan Smiths No. 78 Furniture Row Racing car, while Paul Wolfe is a former racer himself who for the past four years was crew chief of the Nationwide Series No. 11 CJM racing team. “I’m really looking forward to working with Jay next season in my first full season of Cup Series competition, ” Keselowski said. We are also excited to race for the Nationwide Series title with Paul and the No. 22 team in 2010.”
