Featured firm in this article: Keselowski Advanced Manufacturing LLC of Statesville, NC

Brad Keselowski invited Jeff Gluck of The Athletic to Keselowski Advanced Manufacturing (KAM) headquarters in Statesville, NC to sit in on the KAM ops meeting, tour the 70,000-square foot facility, and get insights on Brad's vision for the future. Jeff's article elaborates on Brad's experience as the founder and owner of KAM and how that experience has driven his success and personal development.

"The ops meeting is meant to be a debrief," Keselowski says afterward, walking out of the conference room to begin our tour. "That's one thing I took from racing, is departments have to talk to each other."

At this point, you might already be wondering if this story will attempt to tie Keselowski's business interest in the manufacturing sector into his upcoming ownership role with Roush Fenway Racing.

The answer is yes. But that's not a stretch, because Keselowski himself sees a strong tie between the two. If anything, KAM has served as a training ground for the upcoming release of Keselowski 2.0: Brad The Team Owner/Driver.

"I don't do a lot of media about this company because it gets held against me a lot," he says. "People say it's a distraction, which I 100 percent object to. This company has made me a better person. It's made me a better professional. And ultimately I think it's made me more successful -- not just in financial terms, but in leadership terms."
