Kelley Earnhardt hails from a racing family, as the daughter of Brenda Gee and Dale Earnhardt, a famous racer; her brother is Dale Earnhardt, Jr., also a professional stock car racing driver. Thus, she learnt to drive when she was 12 years old, soon driving stock cars at local tracks. Upon matriculation, she enrolled at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, from which she graduated with a BA degree in Business Administration. Before graduation she raced at Myrtle Beach Speedway and Hickory Motor Speedway, but after college her racing career was ended, and she began pursuing career in the other field of sports industry.

The first win for the team came in 2004 at Moto Mile Speedway in Radford. In 2010, Kelley became the co-owner of the team, alongside her brother. At the present time, the team competes in the Camping World Truck Series and the Xfinity Series, and has one of its youngest champions in Chase Elliott.
Thanks to her accomplishments, Kelley has won a number of recognitions and business awards, including the Top 25 Women in Business Achievement Award by Charlotte Business Journal in 2007, and in 2010 she was the Opportunity Award winner by Lyn St. James’ Women in the Winner’s Circle Foundation.
