MOORESVILLE, N.C. — Brad Keselowski Racing has unveiled their 2015 plans for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in an announcement made on Tuesday afternoon.

The four-time race winning organization in the Truck Series will field two full-time entries next season.

Tyler Reddick will continue to pilot the No. 19 Ford F-150 albeit now on a full-time schedule with crew chief Doug Randolph returning to sit atop the pit box for the No. 19 team this season.

“The way we closed out the 2014 season was quite a statement for us as a team,” the 19-year-old Reddick said. “We were able to do some really good things toward the end of the year. It was a great way to end the season and keep the momentum rolling into 2015 as we compete for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship.

“It’s great to work with everyone at Cequent and Broken Bow Records again this coming season. I can’t wait to get started.”

The No. 29 truck that competed full-time for the drivers’ championship with Ryan Blaney in 2014 will run full-time for the owners’ championship with Blaney, Joey Logano, Austin Theriault, and team owner Brad Keselowski splitting the seat time for the truck.

Theriault, 20, will race a majority of the 23-race schedule in the No. 29 truck, driving in 13 races while Blaney, Logano, and Keselowski will split the remaining 10 races of the schedule.

The motivation for placing Theriault and Reddick as the primary drivers of his trucks for Keselowski is a simple one – to give young up-and-coming drivers opportunities in NASCAR’s national ranks.

“One of the things I wanted to do at BKR is give talented young drivers an opportunity,” Keselowski said. “Both Tyler and Austin are perfect examples of what I’m trying to accomplish.

“We saw a lot of improvement with Tyler in 2014. He really stepped up his game during the second half of the season and I certainly think he can compete for wins and challenge for a championship in 2015.

“Austin was part of our driver development program so for him to have an opportunity to drive for us in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series is pretty special.”

The opportunities to put Theriault and Reddick in his rides for 2015 come from the commitment of Brad Keselowski Racing’s existing sponsors.

Returning to the No. 19 truck in 2015 is sponsorship from Broken Bow Records and various Cequent Performance brands (Draw-Tite, Reese, and Bulldog) while the No. 29 truck will be sponsored by Cooper Standard for the fifth consecutive season.

“I feel extremely fortunate to have Cooper Standard, Broken Bow Records and Cequent Performance partner with Brad Keselowski Racing again in 2015,” Keselowski continued. “Together we are a team in every sense of the word and I’m looking forward to a successful season.”

    Austin Theriault needs a break…he’s a fantastic young driver looking for a chance to prove himself!
