Kelley has won three of these events. He won back to back invitationals.

He first won an Invitational over Damon Merchant at Virginia Motorsports Park in North Dinwiddie, Virginia. The following weekend, Kelley also defeated Merchant in the final round at Brainerd International Raceway in Brainerd, Minnesota.

Team Kye driver David Gates Jr. picked up his first No Prep Kings win at Brainerd. He defeated Giuseppe Gentile in the Great 8 final round.

Outside of Kelley and Gates Jr., there has been two other Great 8 winners. Ryan Martin won the Great 8 race at Virginia Motorsports Park.

Then, Larry “Axman” Roach won his first NPK event in the Great 8 in the GameChanger car last weekend at Beech Bend Raceway Park outside of Bowling Green, Kentucky.
