Philadelphia, PA (March 11, 2019) FUELIN’ AROUND author J.K. KELLY will be signing copies of his latest book at the DRAW booth on the Midway at the NHRA Gatornationals drag race at Gainesville Raceway in Florida from 12 to 2 on March 15-17.

“Gainesville was always the first big drag race on the east coast and everyone I know would pile into their cars and drive south to escape the cold. It was our spring break but we didn’t head for the beaches, we headed for the Gators!”
Kelly continued, “FUELIN’ AROUND is a behind the scenes look at not just my adventures in the motorsports industry, the highs and the lows, but also tells the story of how a group of us helped a David named VP take on the Goliaths of the industry.”

NHRA Funny Car World Champ Bruce Larson wrote, “This book is great!” NASCAR Modified Driver Mike Christopher’s wife jokingly gave Kelly a hard time saying, “He stayed up all night reading it!” Other reviews include, “A page-turner you’re going to attempt to read in one shot,” John DiBartolomeo, Drag Racing Edge Magazine. “Fascinating and enjoyable stories, I laughed out loud more than once,” Andy “Tog” Rogers, Eurodragster.com.

“Jim very graciously offered to give DRAW the profits off each book they sell on the midway throughout the season as a donation,” said Steve Lesuer, DRAW Board Member and one of Kelly’s business competitors mentioned in the book. “I’ll be there with JK on the midway and we're looking forward to sharing some of our war stories.”
