Who’s Kye Kelley?
Kye Kelley was born in Magnolia, Mississippi USA, on 18 May 1985 – his zodiac sign’s Taurus and he holds American nationality. He’s a TV personality and a drag racer, probably known best for his leading role in the reality TV series “Street Outlaws”, which has been airing on the Discovery Channel since 2013.
He was raised alongside his sister Lacey Howell in Magnolia, by their father Kyle who was a factory worker, and their mother Tammy who was a hairdresser. Kyle was allegedly addicted to alcohol and drugs, and most of the time it was just Tammy raising the kids.
Mostly because he wanted to help his mother, Kye began working aged 13, milking cows and bagging groceries at a supermarket in Progress, Mississippi. When he was 15, he was able to buy his first car, and was because of it somewhat popular at the South Pike Senior high school which he attended. There were races organized close to his home every Sunday, and this is how he became interested in racing.
Upon matriculating in 2003, Kye was offered a partial scholarship, but was unable to pay for the rest of his college tuition, and thus decided not to pursue a college degree. Before becoming a full-time drag racer, he worked at an oil refinery, and eventually became the youngest boss at the company, in charge of a team made of 250 people.
He has been into street racing since his teenage years, and gained recognition in 2014 when challenged by OKC Daddy Dave who won, but only by a couple of inches. In the following year, the two met again at 16-Car Cash Days race held in Texas, when Kye beat him as well as several other popular racers, including Bobby ‘Hollywod’ Treadwell and Big Chief. In August 2015, he faced Mike Murillo and beat him at Thunder Valley Raceway Park, however, Kye was disqualified after it was revealed that he left the start line too early.
He’s perhaps mostly popular for his 1992 Chevy Camaro, which he calls ‘The Shocker’. He bought the car back in 2012, and has heavily modified it since then.
