Shannon and Misty Kelton purchased the Monarch Motor Speedway in January of 2019 completing a full 20 race season. Racing in 2020 will feature 26 races on the schedule. Misty Kelton said, “We pride ourselves on a welcoming environment to each person who walks through the gate and bringing affordable family fun. We offer great concession items as well. Being able to bring an entertainment venue to Wichita Falls and the surrounding communities where you can bring the entire family is a top priority for us.”
The Keltons have been around the racing community for 30 plus years as Shannon’s dad grew up racing. They became car owners and now their oldest son Scottie Kelton races a sport mod and they keep him going. The Keltons worked hard this off season to bring some of the top touring series to Monarch Motor Speedway on a weekly basis which will allow fans to see a different type of car competing each week.
Shannon and Misty will celebrate 25 years of marriage in August and the have two sons. Scottie is 24 and races a sport mod while working in the family business in Dallas. Their youngest son Jordan is a fireman with the Ennis Fire Department and owns his own horse shoeing business. When he is not fighting fires or shoeing horses, he can be found working at Monarch Motor Speedway. Being able to work as a family is very important to us as we have done so for many years in other endeavors.
