In his inaugural season at the Invitational level, Merchant achieves his first appearance in the final round. Previously competing in the future class last season, he received a promotion to the top tier through the No Prep Kings Draft.


The initial weekend of the season served as the inaugural points race, with the previous weekend at National Trail Raceway in Hebron, Ohio being a non-points race won by Kayla Morton. As a result of his recent victory, Kelley now holds the top position in the points standings. Despite being defeated in the final round of The Great 8 by Ryan Martin on Friday night, this outcome actually contributed to Kelley's ability to amass the maximum points during the current weekend.


The NPK race at Virginia Motorsports Park served as a gripping reminder of the thrilling and unpredictable nature of street racing. Every race presents an opportunity for drivers to demonstrate their exceptional skills, pushing the limits of both man and machine. With each passing victory, Kelley's reputation as a dominant force in the street racing world continues to grow.


As the NPK series progresses, fans eagerly anticipate the next showdown, wondering if any competitor can rise to the challenge and break Kelley's winning streak. One thing is certain: the road to victory will be hard-fought and fiercely competitive, as the best street racers from across the nation aim to dethrone the reigning champion.
