Kyle, TX – Black Armor Helmets is proud to announce the signing of 2014 SCCA B-Spec National Champion Kyle Keenan. Kyle joins the Black Armor Helmets team with 16 years of racing experience, and will help with the development of future Black Armor Helmet models.
“Black Armor Helmets provide an incredible value. A lightweight, comfortable, carbon fiber helmet at an affordable price is exactly what is needed in motorsports currently. I constantly encourage drivers to invest in the best safety equipment possible, and the Black Armor Helmets do just that at very reasonable price point,” says Keenan.
In 2014, Keenan drove his Team KBR B-Spec Kia to 10 wins in 11 starts, including winning the 2014 SCCA B-Spec National Championship Title, a first for the Kia marque. Kyle would also receive the Northwest SCCA B-Spec Championship, as well as the Nor-Pac Divisional Championship in the process.
2015 will see Keenan return to the US Majors Tour, driving his Kia Motors of America/Hoosier Tire B-Spec Rio. Kyle will also return to participate in select Pirelli World Challenge events, racing in the TCB class.
“We’re very excited to have Kyle racing with us, his passion and drive is infectious,” says James Wilson, CEO of Black Armor Helmets. “With the new Snell SA2015 models coming out this year, Kyle’s enthusiasm will help spread the word that racers can have professional-quality carbon fiber helmets at a club level budget.” Keenan will join Team Black Armor with Wilson (#55 TCB Mazda) and Steve Taake (#95 TCB Mazda) in the Pirelli World Challenge Series for 2015.
