All Stars Sprints make first Fremont appearance on Sat. May 25.

FREMONT, OH -- When Fremont Speedway hosts the All Stars for the first time in 2002 on Saturday night, May 25, fans are anticipating a fresh face in victory lane. In the past nine All Star sprint car events contested on the Sandusky Fairgrounds oval, there have been nine different feature winners. Can the streak continue?

The event is sponsored by Budweiser and pays $6,000 to win and $500 to start the A-main.

Starting on July 30, 1997, the race winner was Joey Saldana, followed by Danny Smith (5/27/2000), Frankie Kerr (6/27/00), John Ivy (9/9/00), Chad Kemenah (4/28/01), Rodney Duncan (6/9/01), Mark Keegan (7/3/01), Mike Wagner (9/7/01) and Butch Schroeder (9/8/01).

The All Stars first competed at Fremont on June 21, 1980 with fan favorite Jack Hewitt the race winner. Since then, the series has recorded 66 feature events with 30 different feature winners.

May 25 will be the first of five All Star appearances at the Fremont oval this season, and the 305 sprints are also on the card. Other All Star dates include a pair of Ohio Speedweek events, July 2 and July 4, (Miller Beer night, worth another $6,000) and a two-day show Sept. 6-7 with the Saturday Chuck Kear's Memorial and manufacturer's night event paying $6,000 to the winner.
