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. In 2022, you can find Keen Parts and CorvetteParts.net both represented on the NASCAR Xfinity Series car of Ryan Ellis.
Keen Parts is a leading manufacturer and retailer of Corvette parts and accessories. 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 and they have over thirty years of happy customers all over the world.
A sprint car racing partnership is the latest venture for the husband and wife duo, Tom and TJ Keen. It 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 Keen shared.
The pair, who are not related, found immediate common ground in their shared last name, and the relationship went from there. By April a partnership had formed and the Keen Parts logo was on the Kyle Keen Motorsports No.17k sprint car.
“Tom has been an important mentor for me and someone who cares about my racing career. He’s always getting me on the phone with new people and making new connections. Aside from racing, he coaches me up on ways of handling business situations, because at my current employment, dealing with employee issues is a daily part of my job. Tom has been extremely insightful in business and in life. I truly enjoy our conversations we have outside of the racing realm. TJ Keen is also right there helping promote me on social media and being interactive in so many different ways. I can’t express my gratitude to both of them enough for allowing me to be a part of their racing program, it’s a true honor and a privilege.“, Kyle added.
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.
