The ‘Cajun Region’ visited the racy Superbowl oval located just outside of Greenville, Texas.
Keimig, who led during the first half of the event, found the top groove in the race’s final stages, sweeping past both Kody Adams and Caleb Dillard, who were locked into a tussle for the top spot.
Keimig led the main through the halfway mark, when Adams took over. Dillard followed Adams into the runner-up spot.
Dillard closed on Adams in the final five circuits, looking to the inside of the leader. Keimig saw opportunity on the outside and powered past both.
The New Jersey native who now resides in Waxahachie, Texas, drew a loud ovation from the crowd in Victory Lane.
