Fuelin' Around is the latest and much anticipated offering from author Jim “JK” Kelly. Many people only dream of a life in motorsports and Kelly pulls back the curtain on the wild ride he took and the ups and downs of what can happen when dreams do come true.
In a critique of Kelly’s debut novel Found in Time, the prestigious Midwest Book Review in the United States wrote,” A truly riveting read from cover to cover, "Found In Time" reveals author J. K. Kelly's genuine flair for originality and a deftly crafted novel that is unreservedly recommended. In writing the story of an interesting life fully lived, Kelly applies these same writing talents to Fuelin' Around.
Having started as a freelance writer and photographer for motorsports magazines while studying journalism in college he went on to secure what he thought was the dream job, working on a NASCAR team. A year later, Kelly left racing to take care of his ailing parents and thought his dreams were over. When opportunity knocked again though, a very young VP Racing Fuels put him back in the action and VP founder Steve Burns credits Kelly as being “one of a handful of people that helped make VP what it is today.” Fuelin' Around offers a behind the scenes look at what Kelly characterizes as a David challenging the Goliaths of the industry.
Fuelin' Around relates the thrills and spills Kelly encountered in his forty years in the industry. Applying a unique sense of humor and lessons learned from the Art of War, Kelly offers this, “People always told me I had a great job so I’ll let them be the judge.”
