Keselowski rejects Penske offer

JR Motorsports' Nationwide Series star Brad Keselowski has declined an opportunity to move to the Sprint Cup Series next season with Penske Racing, The Charlotte Observer and have learned.

Keselowski, who won his second race of the season Friday night at Bristol Motor Speedway, spent last Tuesday visiting the Penske shop, where he met members of the organization and was offered the chance to drive the team's No. 12 Dodges next season, several sources confirmed Saturday.

Keselowski, 24, declined the offer, sources said. Keselowski did not immediately return a call for comment Saturday night.

The native of Rochester Hills, Mich., said earlier this summer he would return next season to the Nationwide Series to drive JR Motorsports' No. 88 Chevrolet, which is co-owned by Cup driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. and his Cup team owner, Rick Hendrick.
