KAM (Keselowsky Advanced Manufacturing) owner and NASCAR driver Brad Keselowsky won the Darlington Raceway last weekend ending his three-year win drought. However, during the past few years, he did not waste any time and founded one of the most advanced metal AM service providers catering to the automotive and aerospace segments.

It was the 36th of Keselowsky’s career and his second at Darlington Raceway, which he reveres as an ultimate test of drivers. The Associated Press reports that it came in front of his young family with daughters, Scarlett who’ll turn 9 later this month and 4-year-old Autumn, joining him on the podium.

“There’s a lot of things to be excited about, don’t know which one means the most,” Keselowski said with a smile.

He moved to the front when leaders Chris Buescher and Tyler Reddick hit battling for first with nine laps left and held on to win the Goodyear 400 at Darlington Raceway on Sunday for his first NASCAR win in three years.

“Hell of an effort by everyone,” Keselowski said after crossing the finish line.

It appeared Keselowski’s employee at RFK, Buescher, would get the win after he passed his boss and Reddick with 29 laps to go. But Buescher and Reddick then hit and fell back, opening the door for Keselowski’s satisfying victory.

Today Roush Fenway Keselowski Racing is one of the most successful teams in NASCAR history, fielding multiple teams in NASCAR Cup Series. In its 34th season, RFK Racing is a leader in driver development, having launched the careers for many of the top drivers in the sport.

Off-track, Roush Fenway is a leader in NASCAR marketing solutions, having produced multiple award-winning Social Media, digital content and experiential marketing campaigns. Roush Fenway Keselowski Racing is co-owned by NASCAR Hall of Fame team owner Jack Roush, Fenway Sports Group, parent company of Major League Baseball’s Boston Red Sox and English Premier League’s Liverpool F.C., and NASCAR Cup Series Champion/Driver of the No. 6 Ford Mustang, Brad Keselowski.
