Rick Kelly retires from racing Supercars

Andrew van Leeuwen

The 37-year-old has been a Supercars regular since 2002, starting out with Holden's YoungLions programme and the Walkinshaw-run K-Mart Racing Team, before he and brother Todd set up the standalone Kelly Racing squad in 2009.

He's been a KR driver ever since, racing Holdens, factory-backed Nissans and, as of this year, a Ford Mustang along the way.

During his full-time career Kelly has racked up two Bathurst 1000 victories, 13 race wins in total, 57 podiums and was crowned the 2006 Supercars champion.
