Joey Meier’s tenure as Brad Keselowski’s spotter ends
Joey Meier announced on Twitter Monday that his time as spotter on Brad Keselowski’s No. 2 Ford has come to an end after Sunday’s season finale.
Meier has spotted for Keselowski since 2006.
“Ive (sic) been told my time as the 2 Car spotter has come to the checkered flag,” Meier said in the Twitter post. “I will miss spotting but there will be more Chapters in my life as I continue to be a pilot.”
After he won at Talladega in 2016, Keselowski called Meier an “all-star” for his work as a spotter.
“His communication, his way of kind of verbalizing what he sees, is the key for me to be able to make the right moves on the racetrack,” Keselowski said. “It’s a good 1‑2 punch ... He’s been part of three of the four Talladega wins, and I don’t think that’s a coincidence.”
Keselowski would win at Talladega again in 2017.
Keselowski won three times in 2018 and finished the season eighth in the standings.
