Last October, Team Penske announced that Austin Cindric would take over the No 21 for Wood Brothers Racing in 2022.
However, with all signs now pointing to Brad Keselowski leaving Team Penske at the end of this season to move to Roush Fenway, will Cindric still take over the No. 21 or move to the No. 2? The Associated Press’ Jenna Fryer asked Roger Penske and Team President Tim Cindric on Sunday:
Corrected quote from TC:
I asked both Roger Penske and Tim Cindric a little bit ago if Cindric is still on track for the 21 or might be in the 2 next year?
"We don't know yet," said Penske
"He needs to keep going. He's got to keep the pedal down," said TC
