Brad Keselowski, the newly crowned NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion, said Tuesday he has no plans to keep his title trophy at home.

“It’s not at my house, it’s at Penske Racing on display for the team guys,” Keselowski, 28, said during a break in testing at Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina.


“I don’t keep trophies at my house,” Keselowski said, according to a transcript provided by Ford Racing. “I don’t believe in building a shrine to myself. It’s kind of weird.”

Penske, which formerly ran Dodge race cars, has switched to Ford for 2013 and Keselowski was testing his No. 2 Ford Fusion at Charlotte.

“The best advantages of switching to Ford is it gives us something to prove all over again” next season, Keselowski said. “It’s really tough for any championship team to be able to keep all of the people motivated.”

Keselowski also has a new teammate for 2013: Joey Logano, who is taking over Penske’s No. 22 car after moving from Joe Gibbs Racing.
