Brad Keselowski Racing announced Thursday that it will end operations at the conclusion of the 2017 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. No specific reason was given although in yesterday’s statement, Keselowski generally expressed his interest in developing a long-term plan to one day become a Cup Series team owner. B-K-R has been in the Truck Series since 2008. It currently fields entries for rookies Chase Briscoe and Austin Cindric, both of whom are among the top ten in the point standings. Briscoe is fourth and leading a three-way fight for the final two playoff spots with two races left in the regular season.
