Brad Keselowski’s crew chief Jeremy Bullins met with the media earlier this week and was asked about the rumors of Brad moving to Roush-Fenway Racing next season:
ALL THE TALK ABOUT BRAD (KESELOWSKI) AND HIS FUTURE. THIS IS THE FIRST TIME YOU HAVE PROBABLY HAD TO ADDRESS THIS AS A LEADER OF A TEAM AND ORGANIZATION THROUGH THE RUMORS. WHAT IS THAT LIKE FOR YOU? HOW HAVE YOU TRIED TO KEEP EVERYONE TOGETHER?
Bullins: “I think the biggest thing for me is honesty and transparency about the situation. Letting the guys know what I know. Having Brad let them know what he knows. Let everybody try to be kept on the same page and understand what the situation is. We are all professionals and our team is handling this very professionally. We know that no matter what happens beyond 2021 that we have a great opportunity with Brad to win races and put ourselves back in the Final Four at Phoenix. We will deal with 2022 then or in the off-season. For us, the main thing is that the timing was unfortunate because we had a few weeks with issues and things going wrong and penalties at a time when all these rumors were going around. It starts to give that outside appearance. I hope last weekend proved a point that we are here to contend for wins and a championship. We had a great weekend at Pocono and feel like we got our legs back under us a little bit and are ready to go through the summer.”
