“I have used all types of brake components, but a year or so ago for my car and my customer’s cars I went strictly to Aerospace.  The reason was simple.  At my local track with a short shutdown I went through the traps at 187 and had parachute failure.  I had just installed my new Aerospace brakes on the rear and already had them on the front.  The Aerospace brakes allowed me to get the car to a stop with no damage and not going off the track.  If I wasn’t sold before on Aerospace, I was then and always will be.  Not to mention how amazing Kim and Al have been to myself and supporting my race program.” says Keith.

Keith plans to race a lot this year.  Both Ducks Lights out events, Outlaw Street Car Reunion, Street Car Takeover in Ohio on June 23, The Warrior Outlaws Series and Yellowbullet Nationals, World Cup finals, and ModNationals. “Pretty much any radial race I can get to I’ll be there” says Keith.

“I couldn’t do any of this without the support of my amazing friends that go to the races and help me work on the car, without my beautiful wife who stays behind and takes care of our beautiful 5 month old daughter, and most of all with the support of companies such as Aerospace who understand and value the partnerships they have with racers.” says Keith of the secret to his success!
