Kelley and his son are currently in the process of completing
the required amount of ARCA races to become licensed for the NEXTEL
Cup, Busch or Craftsman Truck Series qualification.
Another part of the qualification is the car itself. The car
that will be on display is their current and only racecar, which
is a full-scale Monte Carlo with a five-star chassis and body.

this is a time you are sure to enjoy.
