Big Jim Kelley


 Big Jim Kelley drives the #K-7 Super Late Model Class car.  He lives in Newport, NC.  His home track is Southern National Speedway but he can also be found racing at Concord Motorsports Park , Wake County Speedway, East Carolina Speedway, and Coastal Plains Raceway.

He started racing in 1979 in the 6 Cyl Class at Parder County because he loved racing.  His Dad put him in a race car so Jim wouldn't get killed in the Dune Buggy he built at the age of 14 in the salvage yard!  His first win was in 1982 in the Late Model at Wilson County Speedway.  Jim has had 178 career wins, 18 Track Championships in Late Model and Sportsman and he was the NASCAR Late Stock Champion in 2000 at Southern National Speedway.

The thrill of racing for Jim is going fast and winning!  The most exciting racing moment for Jim was winning Big 10 Series last race in 1996....last race with Henry Furr.  He's most proud of his wins, Championships and the family race team.

Richard Petty is Jim's racing hero.

Of racing, Jim says, "Go fast and turn left!".
