With Austin Cindric securing his spot into the Final 4 of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series playoffs last week at Phoenix Raceway, he gives Brad Keselowski Racing a chance to leave the series on top.
In August, Brad Keselowski announced that he would cease operations of the team at the conclusion of the 2017 season. BKR’s first race was in 2008, and in the 10 years that the team has been in operation, they have scored 10 wins and 19 poles.
The one thing that Brad Keselowski Racing doesn’t have though is a championship. This can change tonight due to the most recent winner for BKR in Austin Cindric. Cindric, the son of Team Penske President Tim Cindric, won at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park earlier this season, locking him into the NASCAR playoffs. Through a consistent playoff run full of daring on-track moves, Cindric has been able to make it to the final race and have a chance to bring home the championship to Brad Keselowski Racing in its final race.
Cindric will start tonight’s race from the third position, the highest of any playoff contender. His teammate Chase Briscoe won the pole for tonight’s race, which could help make the team’s sendoff even sweeter.
Green flag for the Ford EcoBoost 200 at Homestead is scheduled for 8:18 p.m.
