Driver Bio

Keven Wood, the 25-year old son of Wood Brothers Racing team owner Len Wood, began his racing career in the fall of 2002. In his 1st Winter Heat Series, he finished in the top-10 in the overall points standings in the INEX Legends Semi-pro division. As the INEX point season started in late March, Keven steadily climbed into the top 10 in the National Semi-pro standings, putting together a strong rookie season. Keven had 32 division wins out of 56 points races that he entered and clinched the National Semi-pro point title the final week of the season. He won 11 of his final 13 races for a come behind victory that included the Virginia State Championship, as well. Keven competed with over 600 drivers that vied for the title.

Keven moved on to the elite Pro division in the INEX Legends in 2004 and was able to secure 9 victories and reached as high as 2nd in the National Pro Points. Keven gave up his quest for the National Pro Legends title to pursue an opportunity to drive a Late Model Stock Car granted to him in late May. Keven began to explore the world of Late Model Stock cars, starting 11 events in 2004. He gathered one pole and one win in his early adventure into this difficult series.

The 2005 season provided Keven ample seat time as he raced in 23 NASCAR Dodge Weekly Racing Series events. With one runner-up finish and seven top five’s in this ultra competitive series, Keven’s learning curve was enhanced greatly. In 2006, Keven added another Late Model Stock win to his resume. Keven competed again in the NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series in 2007, capturing a victory early in the season at Caraway (NC) Speedway, while racing in both Virginia and North Carolina.

In 2008, Keven competed in the NASCAR Truck Series, sharing the ride with cousin, Jon Wood, which made perfect sense to the Wood Family, one of the most legendary names in the business. And if Keven has anything to say about it, he will be doing his level-best to carry on the rich tradition before him.

“This has been an unbelievable season for us.  Not having raced in the INEX Legends Series in over 4 years, I knew I was in for a challenge to pick up where I left off in 2003 and 2004.  Our season would not have been this successful had it not been for Curt Andrews’ powerful engine and Dan Snyder’s exceptional setup and tire cutting.  I would also like to thank my Uncle, Terry Hall, for ‘dragging’ my car to the track for every race.  Also, I would like to commend my fellow competitors, especially Jan Ingram and Daniel Hemric for providing great competition and clean racing.”

Keven’s racing plans for 2012 are still undecided, leaving his options open should sponsorship or driving opportunities become available.
