The partnership established last season between the Kyle Keen Motorsports 358 sprint car team and Keen Parts/CorvetteParts.net has been rolling on through second season together.
Contrary to popular belief, there is no blood relationship between them. A happenstance meeting brought them together, a friendship formed and a partnership was born.
Keen Parts is no stranger to auto racing. The Ohio-based business has a long history of partnerships with racers at every level, from NASCAR to drag-racing television stars on Street Outlaws: New Orleans.
Owners Tom and TJ Keen enjoy racing so much, they sponsor several teams and have done so for many years, often through their alternate business name, CorvetteParts.net. They have successfully partnered with familiar names in NASCAR and ARCA racing like Earnhardt, DiBenedetto, Lajoie, Boat, Tiff and Mullins.
Kyle Keen, his father Shawn and late grandfather Jesse also have a steeped tradition in racing. Their history in dirt track sprint car racing is a well-documented one that is centered in Central Pennsylvania but whose reputation extends well beyond those borders.
Tom, TJ, Shawn and Kyle all have a rich tradition and a track record of success in racing, so it comes as no surprise a partnership was born.
About Keen Parts
Keen Parts is a leading manufacturer and retailer of Corvette parts and accessories. They have over thirty years of happy customers all over the world. While other companies sell parts for Fords and Volkswagens, all Keen Parts does is Corvette parts and accessories.
Keen Parts is still that same family-owned company they have been since day one. They are not a huge impersonal corporation. They are large enough to have the Corvette parts and Corvette knowledge you need, and small enough to help.
CorvetteParts.net is their website alter-ego. With over 26,000 Corvette parts and accessories, they have what you need. They stock parts available for Corvettes from 1953 to the present. Keen Parts is not an anonymous Corvette website. Their retail shop and warehouses are located in Cleves, Ohio just north of Cincinnati.
Keen Parts is proud of what they sell and proud of what they do. Their Corvette parts are on cars displayed at the National Corvette Museum, Concours d’ Elegance winners, and Bloomington Gold winners. They stock both new and used (original) parts. If you cannot locate what you need on their comprehensive website at http://www.keenparts.com– call their knowledgeable staff at 800-757-KEEN (5336).
The sprint car racing partnership all started through a chance meeting with sprint car driver Kyle Keen in early 2022.
“At the time I was working for a marketing company in the evenings. I received a phone call on my lunch break and Tom Keen was on the other line. I immediately knew who he was from watching NASCAR, and from that point forward we really hit it off, and never looked back. It was fun to share the same last name, and I joked with Tom, calling him my long lost uncle. We really try to keep it fun.”, Kyle shared.
Tom and TJ are also familiar with the Central Pennsylvania area. They come to the Carlisle Fairgrounds twice each year for shows like ‘Corvettes at Carlisle’, which are key events for their business, Keen Parts.
“I’m looking forward to continuing to build this fun relationship with Tom and TJ. I can’t thank them enough for supporting my dream and my passion of racing sprint cars. They are incredible people and obviously big race fans, so I’m looking forward to what the future holds with them.“, Kyle commented.
