The 2022 NASCAR season was disappointing, to say the least for Brad Keselowski. The RFK Racing owner-driver struggled to find pace from the start and ended the season winless. He was hit with one of the most severe penalties in NASCAR history at the start of the season which derailed his entire year. He hopes to make a comeback in 2023 and the off-season is the perfect time to do so.
The 2012 NASCAR cup series champion is all set to make his Snowball Derby debut this November. The No:6 driver has been part of some of the most iconic late model and modified racing series in the US. But the crown jewel of late-model racing, the Annual Snowball Derby, remained on the bucket list.
He is excited to be part of the All-Star Racing derby which will feature his fellow cup drivers. He said, “The Snowball Derby is essentially an all-star race as it attracts some of the biggest names in short-track racing, as well as some of my competitors from NASCAR. This is my first time behind the wheel at the Derby,”.
He hopes to bring together NASCAR and super late-model racing with his entry. Keselowski said, “I’m looking forward to the race and very appreciative of Fr8Auctions coming on board with me. Fr8Auctions has supported all levels of racing, so it’s great to partner with them for this particular event and bring together NASCAR and super late model racing,”.

Matt Erickson, President of Fr8Auctions, pointed out that the firm will continue to grow its footprint by working with Keselowski. They are excited to have a champion driver like Brad Keselowski represent them on the field.
