Brian Keselowski, owner and driver of the K-Automotive Motorsports No.92 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team, is now the proud owner of Brian Keselowski Motorsports (BKM), fielding race cars in the ARCA Racing Series (No.29 and No.92) and in the K&N East and West Series (car numbers TBA) with new up and coming drivers, providing them their start into this sport. K-Automotive Motorsports is still up and running and will continue to be the primary company for Keselowski’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series efforts in the future.
“This off-season has been anything but an off-season. We worked really hard to put things together and kick off this new venture” stated Keselowski. The newly expanded team moved their entire operation into a new state of the art facility in Mooresville NC. BKM has also affiliated themselves with the very successful “Manpower to Horsepower” organization (MPTHP), helping veterans suffering from PTSD and other social skill rehabilitations needed after coming back from Iraq and Afghanistan through working on race cars.

I was very happy with her performance during our testing session and I am confident that she will put her best efforts into our team as well for a great outcome”, stated Keselowski. Henderson showed her excitement to drive the No.29 BKM Dodge Charger with the following statement, “I'm truly blessed to have this opportunity to work with BKM and run in the ARCA Racing Series, Lucas Oil Slick Mist 200 at Daytona International Speedway.
