Best way to keep from falling asleep while driving?

Fix the cause

Sleep
Get an evaluation by a sleep specialist to find and fix the underlying cause. Short of that, opening the car window and shewing (gum, beef jerky, etc) may prove helpful in some individuals. Caffeine may help as well but it takes time: 30-50 minutes to kick in after consumption; and should not be taken close to bedtime.
