Racing career[edit]

Conley's No. 47 East Series car for his family team in 2013 at Richmond

Conley began in go-karts at age 5, working his way through quarter midgets, open-wheel racing and sprint cars, including World of Outlaws and USAC competition. Conley debuted in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East in 2011, with his first win coming in 2012 at Columbus Motor Speedway after leading all 150 laps. He competed full-time in the East series in 2013, scoring four top-five finishes.[1]

In February 2014, Conley joined the No. 33 of Richard Childress Racing in the Nationwide Series on a part-time basis, working with crew chief Nick Harrison. Conley was signed to run ten total races.[2] He made his debut at Bristol Motor Speedway in March.[1] Conley started 12th and finished a strong 11th in his debut, after battling from being a lap down.[3] Conley finished 15th at Richmond in April.[4] In July, Conley ran a 160-lap tire test in an RCR Sprint Cup Series car at Nashville Superspeedway.[5] Also in July, Conley announced his support for sponsor IAVA's (Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America) "Convoy to Combat Suicide" along with music artists Lady Gaga and Linkin Park.[6]

Conley's No. 14 Xfinity Series car for TriStar Motorsports in 2015 at Road America

For 2015, Conley signed with TriStar Motorsports to drive their No. 14 Toyota Camry full-time, running for Rookie of the Year.[7][8] However, after 30 races, Conley announced that he would not complete the remainder of the season due to a lack of funding.[9]

After being without a ride for the entire 2016 season, Conley joined JGL Racing's "Young Guns Program" in 2017 to drive the No. 24 Camry part-time starting at Charlotte.[10] However, that ended up being his only race in the car all year, and he was without a ride again after that and has not raced in NASCAR ever since.

Personal life[edit]

On August 2, 2018, Conley married Emma Blaney, the sister of driver Ryan Blaney.
