With Keselowski confirming that Buescher signed a contract extension, there were immediate questions about the length. The driver-owner was specifically asked if his teammate is under contract through the 2024 season.

Keselowski didn’t provide specific details, but he confirmed that Buescher still has multiple years remaining on his deal. This guarantees that he and RFK Racing won’t have to worry about any Silly Season rumors during the 2023 season. Instead, they can try to win races during the regular season and reach the playoffs.

Brad Keselowski has been vocal in his support of Chris Buescher since joining RFK Racing, but he has provided some interesting new details. He revealed that he joined the Cup Series organization and immediately gave Buescher a contract extension.

Keselowski provided the revelation during a post-race press conference at Bristol Motor Speedway. He explained that he had previously campaigned for Team Penske/Wood Brothers Racing to give Buescher an opportunity but that he was not successful. He then continued and discussed why this contract extension was a priority.

Wow…What a night! Definitely experienced a roller coaster of emotions, but I’m really proud of @Chris_Buescher and everyone at @rfkracing. It’s a big deal for us as a company to win races, here’s to many more! @FastenalCompany | #ItsBristolBaby pic.twitter.com/EJgzpxuTM5

“You know, I wanted Chris Buescher to drive the 21 Cup car about five years ago,” Keselowski said. “I thought that highly of him. There was a number of reasons why it didn’t come over — timing and so forth — but I thought that was a natural fit for him. I thought a lot of his talent then.

“…I kind of felt like he was a hidden free agent gem that wasn’t being scouted properly and felt that way for a handful of years,” Keselowski continued. “So yeah, the first thing — it was literally the first thing I did when I signed the papers at RFK. The next step after signing my papers was putting an offer in front of him to give him a contract extension. I thought he was somebody we could build around and get results, and today clearly shows that that was the case.”
