Kelly “Hot Wheels” Brenneman hails from a long history of drivers. Her roots are in Gambier, where Brenneman watched both her father and grandfather speed around the fields on their International Harvester tractors and race to get the yards mowed before the rain, on their Cub Cadets. During her formative teenage years,

Brenneman first drove a green Ford Pinto, graduating to an AMC Pacer, two classic cars with incredible loads of horsepower. Over the years, she has driven anything that her beloved Charles Ray has purchased for her, including a 60-inch John Deere mower that he presented to her on Mother’s Day in 1992, imagine the look on her face when she saw that beauty!


Always a good sport, Brenneman looks to have fun and try her hand at this first Grudge Match. She is assembling her Pit Crew and working to collect the $1K entry fee.
