On March 18, 2012, Keselowski appeared on an episode of “Celebrity Apprentice” to assist fellow NASCAR driver Michael Waltrip’s team.
On April 29, 2012, Keselowski won his first Sprint Cup Series race at Texas Motor Speedway.
Keselowski won the AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway on October 7 after passing Jimmie Johnson with 16 laps to go.

In 2013, Keselowski made the Chase for the Sprint Cup after winning five races (Talladega [May], Pocono [June], Indianapolis [September], Texas [November] and Homestead). His title hopes were hampered by a broken left ankle suffered in a wreck at Talladega.
Keselowski became the first driver to advance into the Chase through the newly implemented “Wild Card” spot for drivers outside of the top 10 with road course ringers making up two of the wild card spots.
His other notable finishes were second-place efforts at Martinsville and Charlotte, as well as fourth-place efforts at Michigan and Dover. Keselowski finished 8th in the final points standings, which was still his best points finish since joining Penske racing six years before.
In 2014, after failing to make the Chase in 2013, Keselowski used his past struggles as motivation to succeed in 2014. He dominated the competition early on with 4 top fives in the first 6 races. His dominant start was slowed when his engine failed at Kansas, relegating him to a 42nd-place finish.
However, Brad Keselowski quickly bounced back with back to back wins at Charlotte and Dover. Keselowski would be dominant throughout the summer part of the season. He won at Pocono, Michigan, Sonoma and Kentucky to extend his win streak to 5 races (the longest active streak in series). He also finished fifth at Talladega after leading 40 laps.
However, Brad Keselowski had a roller coaster ride afterwards as he would only log fifteen more top tens the rest of the season, but some highlights were a 3rd-place finish at Daytona and leading for 30 laps at Indianapolis and Pocono and winning his first race at Watkins Glen International (the first Cup Series win there since 2010).
Keselowski’s consistency paid off as he was able to qualify for the Chase for the Sprint Cup. Keselowski was in a tight battle with Matt Kenseth and Jimmie Johnson to win the final Chase spot. Keselowski earned his spot when he finished 4th at Martinsville while Kenseth and Johnson finished poorly.
At the season finale at Homestead, Keselowski would race Denny Hamlin hard for the championship. However, Keselowski’s efforts would be moot as he crashed with Joey Logano, ending his championship hopes.
Keselowski started off 2015 with a strong run at Daytona before finishing 5th in the first Can-Am Duel race and winning the second Can-Am Duel race on February 19 to start the season with a victory.
Brad Keselowski continued this start to the season by winning the Kobalt 400 at Las Vegas for his second consecutive win. The next week, he would take home another win in Phoenix after leading 149 of 312 laps. Keselowski scored his 4th win of the season in Texas on April 10 after passing Joey Logano with 3 laps to go to take the lead and holding off Logano by .118 seconds.
The win was his fourth consecutive 1st-place finish at Texas Motor Speedway, having also won in 2009, 2010, 2012. On May 3, Keselowski scored a dominant victory at Kansas after leading 257 of 267 laps for his first Sprint Cup Series win there. Keselowski’s 5th win of the season came at Charlotte on May 24 after he led 264 of 400 laps.
Keselowski scored his 11th career victory at Dover International Speedway on June 4 after Matt Kenseth got turned into him by Tony Stewart which resulted in a 4-way fight for the victory that had more excitement than the 2015 Bojangles’ Southern 500.
Keselowski took the lead with 7 laps to go and held off Carl Edwards, Kenseth, and Kyle Busch for his first win at Dover since 2012. About 3 weeks later on June 27, 2015 Keselowski dominated Michigan International Speedway en route to his fifth career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victory at MIS after leading 214 of 400 laps after starting on pole for the first time at MIS.
Keselowski’s 9th career victory came two weeks later at Sonoma Raceway, winning by holding off Kevin Harvick on June 28, 2015 to take his second consecutive win of the season and 5th career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victory at Sonoma. At Kentucky Speedway on July 11, 2015 Keselowski won his third consecutive race and sixth total of the season after holding off Ryan Newman on July 12, 2015.
On August 2, 2015, at Pocono Raceway, Keselowski win came by passing Matt Kenseth with 8 laps to go after leading over half of the final stage. It was Keselowski’s 6th career victory at Pocono and the tenth of his Sprint Cup Series career.
On August 16, Keselowski scored his seventh win in 2015 after leading 155 of 160 laps en route to victory at Watkins Glen International. The victory was his 3rd straight specific road course win. On September 6 at Richmond, Keselowski won his 10th race of the season and first short track win of 2015 after holding off Kyle Larson on September 6, 2015. He also enters the Chase as the points leader.
At Chicagoland Speedway on September 19, Keselowski would lead for a race-high 66 laps and looked like Brad Keselowski could make it three wins in a row, but many pit-stop miscues, including one where his gas can did not fire properly and another where the lugnuts on the tire were not installed properly, left him in 20th place with two laps to go. He was able to drive back to 10th and scored enough points to make it into the second round of the Chase for the Sprint Cup.
On September 26, Keselowski was penalized by NASCAR for failing pre-race inspection multiple times at New Hampshire Motor Speedway where he finished 2nd to Jimmie Johnson after leading 3 laps and dominating much of the race. Keselowski’s crew chief Paul Wolfe was also fined $50,000 and suspended for six races.
On October 19, Keselowski won his 12th race of the year at Talladega Superspeedway, after leading much of the final stage and holding off a hard-charging Dale Earnhardt Jr. by .010 seconds (approximately 5 inches).
Keselowski would also win the first elimination race of the Chase at Martinsville Speedway on October 26, 2015 en route to his 11th career Sprint Cup Series victory. “The same thing that I’ve always done is just race as hard as I can race and sometimes you get lucky enough to win the race”, Keselowski said after the win at Martinsville. “If you want it bad enough and you’re willing to work for it, good things usually happen.”
On November 1, 2015 Keselowski’s chances of winning the Sprint Cup Series Championship were dented after Brad Keselowski finished 21st at Texas Motor Speedway. He quickly shook off the disappointment by winning his fourth race of the season at Phoenix International Raceway on November 9, 2015. He held off Martin Truex Jr. after a restart with 12 laps to go and raced his way into the final round of the Chase for the Sprint Cup at Homestead-Miami Speedway on November 20, 2016.
At Homestead-Miami Speedway Keselowski finished 4th behind eventual series champion Jimmie Johnson, Kevin Harvick, and Martin Truex Jr. Keselowski’s fourth place finish was not enough for him to advance to the final round of the Chase for the Sprint Cup, but he did secure his fifth-place standing in driver standings.
