Bradley "Brad" Aaron Keselowski (born February 12, 1984) is an American stock car racing driver currently competing in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series piloting the #2 Miller Lite Ford for Team Penske and the #22 Discount Tire Ford in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. He is the son of Bob Keselowski and the nephew of Ron Keselowski. His older brother Brian Keselowski also competes in the ARCA RE/MAX Series.

Keselowski began competing in NASCAR in 2004, when he began racing in the Craftsman Truck Series, driving the #29 Ford F-150 for his family-owned K Automotive Racing team. He made his debut at Martinsville Speedway, where he started 26th and finished 33rd. He made seven more starts that season, his best finish coming at Mansfield, where he finished 16th. Keselowski ended the season 34th in the final points standings.

In 2005, Keselowski began competing in the Truck Series full-time with backing from and Samson Stone. He opened the season with a career-best seventh-place finish at the Florida Dodge Dealers 250. Running every race that season, he finished 21st in points. He ran the first two races of 2006 for K, finishing sixteenth at California Speedway, before a lack of sponsorship caused the team to temporarily suspend operations. Keselowski then drove a pair of races filling in for the injured Kelly Sutton, where he had a seventh-place start at Memphis Motorsports Park. He returned to the trucks in August, where he finished 33rd at Bristol Motor Speedway driving the #63 for MB Motorsports. He also announced he would run several races for Keith Coleman Racing in the Busch Series. He failed to qualify in his first race with the team at Bristol, but than rebounded to qualify in his next 7 straight races.

In 2007, Keselowski began running in the NASCAR Busch series full time and for Rookie of the Year honors with Coleman, but the team suspended operations in July. During the 2007 racing season, Keselowski was tabbed to replace Ted Musgrave at Memphis Motorsports Park after Musgrave was suspended for an in race scuffle with another driver. He was among the fastest on the track all weekend. He qualified first for the Saturday night race, and led a majority of the race. With about 9 laps to go, Keselowski was leading when he came off turn four and got bumped by Travis Kvapil, who claimed the contact was 'accidental'. Keselowski finished 16th. He qualified thirty-third and finished 14th. He drove the #88 for JR Motorsports for the rest of the year, posting five top-ten finishes. He will continue to drive for JR in 2008.
