Keen started from P4 in the 30-lap event that was postponed after a rain out on April 9 and after taking the lead from Ben Ellement on lap 18, set sail for home, winning by just under six seconds.
Ellement, who started from pole position, held on for second with Steven Ford, who started from P3, taking third.
The race was paused on the first lap after there was a bump between Luch Monte and Mitchell Wormall that saw the latter tag Jamie Landrigan who went over after being hit by Rod Snellin.
Ellement had trouble getting around some of the backmarkers that saw Keen close the gap and after the #44 went wide on one occasion, Keen took the lead.
Ben Van Ryt, Luch Monte, Robert Watson junior, Terry Cutts, Aldo De Paoli and Luke Hughes rounded out the top 10.

QUEST APARTMENTS LATE MODELS
STARTING from pole position gave Jamie Oldfield the best possible chance of winning the final of the Quest Apartments Late Model grand final.

Michael Holmes, who started on the second row with Cardy, was fourth, while Warren Oldfield, who started from P6, rounded out the top five.
