ORRVILLE, OH -- Kelly Kinser snapped Chad Kemenah's two-race winning streak Monday night at Wayne County Speedway in the Haulmark All Star sprint car 21st annual Ohio Speedweek 30 lap feature. The Pete Jacobs Memorial was worth $5,000 to the Bloomington, Indiana driver who led all 30 laps. Jeff Shepard and Chad Kemenah crossed the line next and you could have thrown a proverbial blanket over the top three finishers.

"My car was getting loose, and I think they were just as fast as I was," Kinser said of the close finish. "I kind of used Danny Smith as a block so Shepard had to go to the bottom," was how Kinser revealed his late race strategy which sealed the win. "I didn't think we'd hold him off but we did."

Local driver Tim Hunter started from the pole with Kinser alongside. Shepard, who started fourth, then took second from Hunter and began reeling in Kinser with Shepard in the high groove and Kinser mostly on the bottom. Lap six saw Shepard pass Kinser going down the backstretch, but that move was nullified by a caution for a stopped Andrew Palker. Kinser held the lead for the restart and Shepard was second and Kemenah third. As Kinser entered lapped traffic, Shepard began closing in on him, but once in the clear, Kinser again opened up an advantage. As the laps wound down, Shepard again erased Kinser's advantage and on lap 27 Shepard went high on the backstretch to inch ahead, but Kinser battled back to lead by a wheel at the flagstand. Kinser anticipated Shepard's next move and moved up to block him the next lap, then used Danny Smith as a pick to secure the win.

"Kelly's car was good, our car was good and Chad's car was good, Shepard said of his finish. "We'll take second."

Kemenah held on for a close third, with ninth starting Jason Johnson fourth ahead of Byron Reed.

"We got better as the race went on." said Kemenah. "Kelly just got through the lapped cars better."

Hunter held on for sixth ahead of David Harrison, Dale Blaney, Dean Jacobs and Kenny Jacobs.

The Crown Battery heat fell to Jason Johnson, the B&B Products heat went to Greg Wilson, the Engler Machine and Tool heat was won by Jeff Shepard and the TP Wings heat fell to Marty Ling. David Harrison won the United Aluminum Window Sales & Consulting B Main and Kelly Kinser captured the Haulmark Dash. Kenny Jacobs was the Huggins Cams Fast Time qualifier after apparent fast timer Craig Keel had his time disallowed due to having his ignition box in the cockpit in violation of the new All Star ignition rule.
