RFK Racing Expansion: IMSA SportCar Championship and NASCAR Cup Series Ventures

RFK Racing Expansion: Brad Keselowski, the owner-operator at Roush Fenway Keselowski Racing, is charting an ambitious course for a team under his leadership for just two complete seasons.

Setting its sights on a maiden voyage in the IMSA SportCar Championship, RFK Racing aims to delve into the pinnacle of North American road course racing. This strategic move may prove pivotal for RFK Racing, given the prestige associated with the series’ endurance racing events.

NASCAR’s increasing incorporation of road courses alongside its traditional oval tracks has been notable. Keselowski shared his insights on this evolution with NBC Sports, emphasizing, “As NASCAR delves deeper into road course racing, that expertise offers substantial advantages to the ecosystem of a thriving Cup team.”

While a few NASCAR Cup Series drivers have dabbled in the IMSA SportsCar Championship on a part-time basis, Keselowski’s specific focus within the IMSA Racing sphere remains uncertain—whether it leans toward the SportsCar or Prototype categories, the latter integrating hybrid powertrains.

RFK Racing’s endeavors extend beyond IMSA, unveiling plans for a third part-time entry in the NASCAR Cup Series, akin to Trackhouse Racing’s Project 91. Dubbed the Stage 60 program, the #60 Ford Mustang will make sporadic appearances in select 2024 Cup Series events, starting with David Ragan’s anticipated return next February.

The #60 car holds historical significance within Jack Roush’s legacy, aligning with the team’s tradition. Drivers like Chris Buescher and Carl Edwards have steered Xfinity Series cars donning the same number to victory lane multiple times for the Roush team.

With Keselowski’s team attracting increased attention, a surge in marketing revenue could significantly bolster an already ascending group.
