    Kes won’t be going anywhere, unless he keeps on dissing Ford and then they may “mutually decide to part ways’. I’d doubt he would want to leave Penske for anything lower. Been there, done that.

    I think there is a bigger reason as to why Brad shut down his truck team and kept his shop. He mentioned a possible growth for him in the future.

    That’s true, Brad did express an interest in owning his own cup team...

    Perhaps it’ll be Keselowski Racing, RCR, and RPM running Dodges in 2019...

    Given the fact that rumors are still going around that Roush is close to exiting the sport as an owner, the only way Penske will split from Ford imo is if they dump him. Or if Ford leaves NASCAR.

    Penske follows money, doesn't matter how good or bad he does as long as he's making bank.

    You are right but Ford won't make the mistake of letting them get away especially if Roush is gone.

    I agree 100%.......and Penske has a reputation for keeping his drivers, especially after they win a Cup championship. He kept Rusty Wallace long after his best racing days were behind him. Of course, if you address him as "Hey, Dude", as Kurt Busch did over his car radio when he got frustrated while not running well, well then you might want to start looking for a ride with another team :D.

    How much longer is Penske signed with Ford? Kes is right about Ford being behind in aero with the Toyotas. And Chevy will have the Camaro next year sure to be equal or better than the Toyotas. Penske won't want to be getting whipped on the track for too long. He'll have a 3 car team next year too.

    Yeah they recently reupped with Ford. That is why I am surprised Kes is so vocal towards Ford. They have at least 4 more years by my count.

    Kes wants a new front end for the Fusion to better compete with the Toyotas.

    Keselowski has said that Ford has no plans to update the nose at current. I have a feeling that Ford isn't going to update the Fusion until the gen 7 car is introduced.

    I’m a longtime fan but I don’t know all the rules/regs...

    How difficult would it be for Brad to drive for Penske and field his own team at the same time with a different driver (or drivers)? Or is that even possible in the current cup structure?

    Dale Sr did that with DEI while he drove for RCR but he fielded the same make as he drove. So if Brad eventually became a team owner and still drove for Penske he would most likely be under contract to field the same make as Penske.

    Whatever brand he decides to run, he'll have to buy a Nascar "Charter" to get a guaranteed starting slot at the Cup races..........or his team will have to take it's chances with trying to qualify their way into a race.
