USA Speedway, Bolivar MO 5/8/2021
First time back and car had the wrong set up. Dad is crew chief. Finished 3rd place. Special Thanks to James Fohn for spotting. I did not get entire race as I thought it was over when he pulled off due to a flat tire. I did not think he could pit and get back out there until it was too late. Learning about racing daily.
The Show Me State at Show Me Showdown 9th place Montgomery Motor Speedway 5/1/21 first race here.
First time at track and finished 9th after qualifying 20th place with a .447 of a second difference from the 1st place qualifier and a .359 of a second difference from 1st place feature finish time. Charlie passed 12 cars total and brought the car home in one piece and ready to race the next ATPLM #2 race on 5/21/21. He learned a lot about the track and can use this information for the next race at Montgomery Motor Speedway.
Charlie Keeven becomes Charging Charlie at 5 Flags Speedway ATPLM#1 4/29/21 3rd Place 3rd race here.
Started 14th then fell back to 18th. Finally, finished at 3rd place. I think Charlie passed the most cars out on the race track tonight. Once he started passing, he made passing look easy. It was a team effort. Charlie passed 22 cars on a Friday night in Pensacola Florida coining the nickname Charging Charlie. Charlie is racing the entire ATPLM series 2021. This includes 4 races and the Blizzard race in December 2021. For further details, visit the Schedule tab of fastactionracingteam.com. Take a ride with Charlie Keeven as he qualifies for the feature race.
Snowflake 100 12/5/2020 ends the season with a flaky wreck in the LCQ race at 5FlagsSpeedway.
No where for #55 Charlie Keeven to go during the crash on lap 30 of the Last Chance Qualifying (LCQ) 50 lap race when a car in the rubble pivots and crashes straight into passenger door ripping off the sides and damaging the frame of Charlie's car. It was a hard hit. He was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Both drivers were able to walk away from the scene while both cars were too damaged to finish the LCQ race for a last chance position in the Snowflake 100 feature race. A total disappointment for Missouri driver with big hopes of making the feature race in Pensacola Florida.
#55 takes 5 at 5Flags Speedway on first visit. 1st-5th 100 feet apart at finish line 10/25/2020.

Winchester Speedway 2020. Three of four champion contenders end season with wrecks vs. titles.
Racing for the Championship and Rookie of the Year Title! The 13th lap of 100 ended the race for titles and wrecked the car.
I thought he won it until...Bristol Motor Speedway CRA chase race #3 9/26/2020. I'll let you decide.
We started 11th out of 16 cars in the Pro late model series race. Charlie moved to #1 on lap 81 of 100 laps and pulled away from other racers making it look like the win was his and we would be 1 of 4 making it to the champion race playoffs. #55 Charlie Keeven, who turned 14 on 6/30/2020, lost the sword on the 8th restart of race after final caution with only 2 laps remaining of the race. 27 year old Brock won race as Charlie pushed his car through the smoke filled finish line almost recapturing the lead he had prior to the 8th caution with only 6 cars standing in the original 16 cars lined up at the start of the race. It was a battle Charlie did not know existed as the desire for the sword has been a long standing goal of the veteran drivers who have chased it's ownership for many years. Charlie held on and pushed his way to 2nd place. First time visitor and racer at Bristol Motor Speedway, Charlie took to the track immediately calling it one of his most favorite tracks as he specializes in high bank bull tracks throughout his racing history.
Lucas Oil Raceway Fall Brawl 9/20/20 lives up to it's name and Charlie scores 4th in CRA All Stars.
Charlie starts 4th and finishes 4th. I think he could have got 3rd but had to race against lap car for numerous laps for some reason. He needs at least 3 more points to make the Championship race at Nashville. There was a fight, my umbrella broke due to wind and multiple umbrellas landed on the track during a caution. I had to make a decision whether to post the 1st or 2nd part of race and earlier day pictures due to technical difficulties. Speed 51 has a recording of entire race from leader point of view. Will post group picture upon receipt.
