        Biography

Another true cowboy, living the western way of life. Horses and chuckwagon racing have always been a part of Kelly’s life. Following in the footsteps of his father, Glen, Kelly started riding and training the big horses at a very young age.  He drove his first chariot race at the age of 14. In 2007 he bought a wagon, built a herd and started racing, as work permitted. Even though Kelly was unable to commit full time, he kept his skills and often filled for other drivers. In 2014, he was able to compete for a full season and he did great. 2015 was even better for Kelly and he finished the season 5 places higher in the Standings. He is a confident, competetive driver with a winner attitude that has proven to be excellent competition for others in his heat.

He is often first to offer help during the season and in both 2015 and 2016, Kelly was chosen by the membership to receive the

WCA Sportsmanship Award.

Off track, he has a keen interest in the betterment of the WCA and sits as a Director on the WCA Executive Board where he is active and engaged in club decisions during racing season.

 He is a very likeable guy and enjoys a good visit around the campfire. Kelly has a lot of horse sense and a lot interest in wagon racing and travels the circuit with his wife, Kendra and assorted family members, including Bryce Somerville, all pitching in to help.

Although he is currently living in the Grande Prairie area, Kelly’s roots are firmly planted in Manning, Alberta. Follow Kelly on Facebook. Link above.
