For the 1980 season Keke was only able to race in the final two races of the Can-Am Challenge series, again for the Newman Racing

team but this time using a Lola T530 (Chevrolet V8 5-litre). Although he only competed in the two events he made a big impact managing

to achieve a 2nd and 4th place, a pole position, and a fastest lap.
