Kelley, now residing in Boise, Idaho, has become oneof the most recognized names in snowmobiling, and his recognition grew even more since moving from Quincy in 2012. Kelley grew up in East Quincy around snowmobiles. His family took rides nearly every weekend when there was snow on the ground. Kelley, who began riding around 4 years old, quickly became adept at navigating with a snowmobile. In 2002, Kelley began racing snowmobiles. He continued through 2004, when he stopped due to limited racing opportunities. The next year Kelley started snowmobiling in films. Since then, Kelley has appeared in 17 films. He worked with film companies such as 509 Films, Boondockers, Team Summit and Alpine Assassins. "It was just a lot more fun for me to go out in the backcountry with my friends and film ourselves on our snowmobiles," said Kelley. "It offered more opportunities than racing did." Multiple companies attached to snowmobiling quickly took notice and offered Kelley sponsorships. Kelley is currently sponsored by 22 companies, such as and Arctic FX Graphics. Recently, Kelley took to writing about what he knows best: snowmobiling. Kelley started contributing articles to snowmobiling magazines. His latest article is on newsstands right now. In the latest edition of Sled Heads, published four times per year, Kelley wrote on the construction of his newest snowmobile, a free-ride sled. Kelley details, the process and the brand choices he used in the constructiofi, and explains why each component is perfect for his uses. He said he plans to continue snowmobiling, writing and appearing in films. Kelley is also enjoying living in Boise, where he said the terrain is similar to Plumas County's, but the snow is better.
