Past Fantasy Outlooks
The Penske Racing star finished a distant 12th in the driver standings last season, but that was a function of two variables. Going cold at the wrong time, and the Chase playoff format led to his early exit from the Chase. He really had a much better season than his final standings position shows. Keselowski racked up four victories and 22 Top-10 finishes. Those numbers are on par with what he's averaged the last three seasons. He had crew chief Paul Wolfe will continue forward with the success they've built in the No. 2 Ford team in 2017. Keselowski has one championship in the bank and he's looking for more, so that makes him both a talented and hungry driver.
It might seem that Joey Logano has supplanted Keselowski as the number one driver at Penske Racing, that's no reason to discount the driver of the No. 2 Ford. Keselowski made a deep run in last season's Chase for the Cup and compiled two pole positions and seven top-10 finishes during NASCAR's playoff. The veteran driver had a down season in the victory department with only one, but he still collected a career-best 25 top-10 finishes. Paul Wolfe returns in 2016 to lead the team again, and in the hopes that he and Keselowski can mount a challenge for that second championship for the Michigan native. There's good reason to expect an uptick in wins and consistency for this driver and team in the upcoming season.
The “Jimmie Johnson” of the next decade has arrived in the form of Keselowski. The 2012 Sprint Cup Series champion dueled with and beat the best in the sport to win last season’s title. The Penske Racing star isn’t finished by a long shot, in fact, we expect a long and very successful career for the driver of the No. 2 Ford. Keselowski will stay with crew chief Paul Wolfe yet again in the upcoming season, but the Penske team makes the jump to Ford from Dodge. That’s the only change in this team’s championship chemistry. It’s taken a very long time for owner Roger Penske to ascend to the top of the sport, and there’s good reason to believe Keselowski will keep him there for a while.
