As we draw closer to Daytona, as of now, there are only two drivers attempting for Rookie of the Year honors. One of those drivers, Brian Keselowski, is hoping to run the full schedule.
Keselowski says that with the current rules that the
Nationwide Series came out with, his team could not race this upcoming season.
“We decided that … it wasn’t much more expensive to run the Sprint Cup Series.
If we’re going to spend that kind of money, we might as well go Cup racing.
It’s not going to be easy, but we want to race.”
With plans on going racing, a second car from K-Automotive
Motorsports going to the track could be likely for the team. “I’m not going to
make an everyday deal out of that. It’s not going to happen for a while.” For
this second car, Dennis Setzer might try at a few races. “Dennis is good at
places like Martinsville, and it will be smart to bring someone that knows
their way around the place.”
With sponsorship looking questionable, K-Automotive and
Brian Keselowski will try to keep starting and parking to a minimum. Keselowski
says that there are some small things lined up for Speedweeks, and even has a
chance with another driver to run the Budweiser Shootout, but there is no
primary sponsorship lined up for his car.
