Kelly Collopy – Parts and Logistics Manager
Team Hammer's Keith Perry and John Ulrich noticed Kelly Collopy when he worked for teams racing against Team Hammer in the WERA National Endurance Series. In 1997 Collopy and one of the riders he had worked with made the move to Team Hammer.
Since joining the team as Parts and Logistics Manager, Kelly has been a pinch-hitter at the racetrack, jumping in to solve problems and help the other mechanics make crash repairs, change motors and swap wheels as needed.
Collopy is also in charge of handling questions and requests from competitors and spectators during the race weekend, and oversees the team's inventory of parts, tires and supplies.
