Driver // Jimmy Keeney

Jimmy Keeney

Jimmy can be viewed as the ultimate grassroots rally racer in the Rally America Series. His crew and co-driver comprise of his immediate family, which may be the secret to his success. Melissa is both his co-driver and wife, and his crew is his mother, father, and uncle.

Jimmy currently sits 2nd in the Super Production Class and within striking distance for the class win. Earlier in the year, Jimmy compiled enough points in the Series to receive an X Games 15 invitation where he faced 1999 Indianapolis 500 winner, Kenny Brack.

With the main goal of having fun, Jimmy looks to end the season with a Super Production Class win and a big smile on his face! 

Able Planet’s Jimmy Keeney had a break-out year in 2009 when he won the first ever Super Production Class title and was invited to compete in his first X Games.

With his family as his crew members, Keeney is known for consistency and the epitome of the phrase, “to win you must first finish.”

In 2010, Keeney returned to compete in Super Production and finished 3rd overall in the class. He also returns to X Games 16 as the “alternate” Rally Car Racing entry.

With the main goal of having fun, Jimmy looks to always end the season with a big smile on his face! 

How did you get started in Rally or Rallycross?

My first experience was racing karts around colorado. I ran three years and took two southern colorado championships. I then moved to hill climb racing, where I have been running for the last ten years, and where I first caught a glimpse of rally racing.

What are your future goals?

My first goal is to have fun, other than that, we take it as it comes to us. We’ve been lucky enough to win a few races the last couple of years, and we feel a few more might be within our reach.
