Mervin Keegan’s racing career started in the early 1950s and has continued to this day. His cars won three Fremont Speedway track championships, the first coming in 1954 with a 1934 Ford. The second championship came the following year with his brother, hall-of-famer Gug Keegan once again handling the driving duties. In the late 1960s Mervin started building cars for his three sons, Danny, Donnie and Ronnie. In 1974 he won his third track championship with his sons Donnie and Ronnie with hall-of-famer Wally Heminger driving a 1967 Mustang. Mervin’s four sons – Danny, David, Donnie and Ronnie – have all been involved in racing since the 1960s. Mervin can still be found in the pits watching his son’s cars being raced by his grandsons, Dustin, Jeremy, Jody, Todd and Tim Keegan and Jacob and Justin Stout plus granddaughter Buffy Bordner.
