Bradley "Brad" Teague (born December 9, 1947) is a retired American professional stock car racing driver. He is a veteran of the NASCAR Winston Cup Series, Nationwide Series, and Camping World Truck Series.
Teague has competed in NASCAR's top series since 1982, when he made his debut in both the Winston Cup Series (currently the Sprint Cup Series) and the Busch Series (now the Nationwide Series). He has also competed in the Sportsman Series during the 1980s, and the Craftsman Truck Series, now the Camping World Truck Series, in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
Teague's best career finish in the Winston Cup Series came at Martinsville Speedway in 1982, where he finished eleventh. In 1989 he posted the fastest time in third-day qualifying for the Daytona 500, but did not compete in the race or in the Twin 125 qualifying races. Teague attempted to qualify for the 1994 Brickyard 400 but was not fast enough to make the race.
As one of the few remaining drivers who has competed in the Xfinity Series since its founding in 1982, Teague has one career win in the series; this came at Martinsville in 1987, while driving a Chevrolet, where he won the Miller 500. In 2004, Teague was fined $2,500 by NASCAR for a post-race altercation with members of Kevin Harvick's race team at Lowe's Motor Speedway.
Teague made his final NASCAR start on August 21, 2015 for the Food City 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway. He wrecked with 5 laps to go along with Harrison Rhodes, and finished the race in the 26th position.
