'The best is yet to come', promises Keselowski
"I never really looked at it from the standpoint of, 'I want to go win a championship with him,' it was I want to go win races and continue to grow as a team," he continued. "We've done that each and every week and every year, and now we're rewarded with a Cup championship."
"For me this is what I love, taking people within at organisation and seeing them flourish, and he certainly has today," said Roger Penske. "Brad has got not only the raw talent but I think he's a thinking driver ... He knows what's going on and takes care of his car. You could see it on the restarts today, he wasn't going to go and over-rev the engine, maybe lose an engine because of a valve spring. I think he's going to be a multiple champion."
Even though he's finally clinched a NASCAR title to go with his years of success as a team owner in IndyCar, Penske said he had no plans of stopping any time soon.
"As far as me personally, I guess I'm going to come to the races for as long as I can. I don't have a deadline, I don't have a number. I guess at this particular point, this racing keeps me young," the 75-year-old commented. "Paul already said to me we've got to go to work Tuesday morning and get ready to go next year. So it doesn't take long to have it sink in, and we've got to think about the future ... I need a couple more championships!"
"I feel like this team with these two people sitting next to me that we can do anything we set our mind to if we work together like we have over the last few years, I really do," agreed Keselowski.
"I just feel so fortunate to be where I'm at right now in life and with racing, to have guys like this around me because you're a product of who you surround yourself by, and I'm surrounded by the best," he continued. "That's as sweet as life gets, to know that you have people around you that can make up for you when you make mistakes, because we all make mistakes, and I make a ton of them.
"You know what? I feel like the best is yet to come. I really do."
