Brad and Brian Keselowski’s father, Bob, has passed away.
Last week, Brian stated on Twitter that Bob battled cancer for the past two years and was “nearing the end of his amazing, fast paced life.”
Bob won the ARCA Menards Series championship in 1989 and won 24 career races over a 12-year stint. He made one Cup start in 1995 at Pocono Raceway.
NASCAR issued a statement: “Bob Keselowski was a true racer whose determination and love of the sport embodied the NASCAR and ARCA spirit. He worked tirelessly to build his family-owned team, doing whatever it took to compete. Our thoughts are with the Keselowski family during this difficult time.””
My dad will always be my hero. He was quiet and understated, but that didn’t change the impact he had on me or that I watched him have on everyone who knew him. I am forever grateful for what I learned from this man, and I will remember him every day. https://t.co/NiG822YfpD pic.twitter.com/eUZWkPtUEG
