Kenny is a Maryland native who began his career in media as a sportswriter at Tuskegee University, covering SIAC sports working for the athletic department and as a sports correspondent for the Tuskegee Campus Digest. Following his time at Tuskegee, he was accepted to the NASCAR Diversity Internship Program as a Marketing Intern for The NASCAR Foundation in Daytona Beach, Florida in 2017.

An avid NASCAR fan, Kenny turned his affection into a career after joining the Motor Racing Network as an Associate Producer in 2018. Then he transitioned to NASCAR in 2020 and became the Senior Coordinator of Track Content. Kenny managed social media strategies for NASCAR’s Midwest region, including Kansas Speedway, Watkins Glen International, Michigan International Speedway, Iowa Speedway, and Chicagoland Speedway.
