Kelley Racing is a former Indy Racing League team founded by Fort Wayne, Indiana-based car dealer Tom Kelley that fielded a Delphi sponsored car for Scott Sharp during its entire existence from 1998 to 2004. The team was based in Indianapolis and captured 9 wins (7 with Sharp, 1 with Mark Dismore, and 1 with Al Unser Jr.) before shutting down when Sharp decided to leave the team with his sponsorship after a poor 2004 season. The assets of the team were bought by Tony George, who transformed it into Vision Racing.
