Jason Keen Pleased with Continued Progress in OSCAAR Modifieds

With consistency on a weekly basis, Jason Keen was one of the front runners all year long in Queenston Chevrolet Buick GMC OSCAAR Modified competition.

“We had a good season,” he told SHORT TRACK MUSINGS. “We learned a lot, again, and we’re excited about the season coming up.”

Keen showed consistency on a weekly basis, scoring five top-five’s and 10 top-10’s, along with five heat victories throughout the year. Looking back on the year, he says his favourite moment was the runner-up he scored at Delaware Speedway in August.

“I like the way the car handled at Delaware,” he commented. “It was a good race for us. We got the set-up right on, and the car was working good.”

Now moving forward to 2020, he says the biggest thing that his team needs to do is figure out the fine adjustments on the car to get it dialed in for each track on the schedule.

“That’s what we’re working on during the winter time and right now, too,” he said. “I’m hoping to have another good season. I would like to win a feature race; that’d be my goal, to try to get good feature finishes.”

He knows the success won’t come easy, though, as there are “a lot of good drivers and nice equipment in the series, really competitive,” as noted with six different feature winners across 2019.

The competition is only expected to grow with a couple rookies already announcing their intentions for the new season, Keen’s advice to them is, “no matter how hard the car handles at the track, keep working on it and it’ll get better.”
