Jeff & Elena Turner won our Michigan NASCAR race Hot Pass giveaway. They spent the weekend at Michigan International Speedway as guests of Keen Parts/CorvetteParts.net and got to experience the race from an entirely new perspective. But it almost didn’t happen. Jeffrey had just returned home after a long day at work when Tom Keen, owner of Keen Parts, phoned. Tom asked Jeff if he was ready to go to the Michigan race and congratulated him on winning the Hot Passes. Jeff thought it had to be a scam phone call and was seconds away from hanging up when Tom convinced him that he truly won! Jeff later said that they had “no idea what we were in store for”.

A Love of Corvettes & NASCAR

Like many Corvette fans- the Turners both enjoy NASCAR. Although they have attended other NASCAR races at Indianapolis and the Kentucky Speedway, Jeff highly recommends the Hot Pass. He called it “spectacular” and “a once-in-a-lifetime experience.” They were fortunate to meet and speak with Matt DiBenedetto, driver of the Go Fas Racing Team Keen Parts/CorvetteParts.net #32 several times over the race weekend. Jeff described Matt as amazingly humble and approachable. Cheering for one of the good guys is great! It turns out that Jeff’s wife Elena and Matt also share the same small hometown in California. Small world!

Jeff and Elena are long-time Corvette enthusiasts who have owned several of the early 1980’s models. Their current Vette is the Black/Black 1981 pictured below. The Turners enjoy cruising Ohio’s back roads and have visited the Keen Parts headquarters in Cleves several times- once at the summer Open House. They are fortunate to live only a short drive from Keen Parts retail shop. Jeff was doing research on his Vette and contacted Keen Parts. The staff expanded on what Jeff was looking for, and their advice was invaluable in leading him “in another direction but was a much better decision” according to Jeff. We are very proud of the Keen Parts Team!
