Team NOLA is friendly with one another. However, when they race one another, they throw their friendly gestures out the window. They want to win.

Kye Kelley defeated his teammate Jerry Bird in the final round of the Street Outlaws No Prep Kings show on Saturday night at Virginia Motorsports Park in North Dinwiddie, Virginia. Kelley received $40,000 for the win.

Kelley — who calls Mississippi home — is the first points winner of the 2022 No Prep Kings tour. Ryan Martin won the first race of the season. However, that race at Palm Beach International Raceway in Jupiter, Florida was not a points race.
