Chad Kemenah Prepares for All Star Season Opener at Oglethorpe Speedway Park March 5-6

CAMARGO, IL -- The All Star Circuit of Champions sprint cars will open their 25th anniversary season with a first-ever visit to the half-mile Oglethorpe Speedway Park in Savannah Georgia on Friday and Saturday night March 5-6. All Star points champion Chad Kemenah is excited about beginning the defense of his points title in the twinbill event.

All the regular All Star competitors are expected to be on hand for the first points race of the season including defending two-time All Star champion Kemenah. The Findlay, Ohio resident drove the Harble Motorsports Eagle chassis to five feature wins during the 2003 season, recording a total of 39 top ten finishes. Kemenah also recorded seven fast times, eight Haulmark Dash wins, 13 heat race wins and five B Main checkered flags. Kemenah's team was supported by Underground Utilities, Inc., Hyundai, American Augers, Kear's Speed Shop, Kistler Engines, Hoosier Tire, Sander, Pro-shocks, Design 500, Flocon, Banshee Graphics and SSE Helmets.

Kemenah started his racing career in 1988 with a street stock he ran at several local tracks in northwestern Ohio. He would race this division until 1992 when he made his first debut in a sprint car. The next two seasons held seat time with several different owners including the Burmeister No. 16 sprint car. This ride carried out through mid-season 1994 when he stepped into the Chuck Steinbrick No. 92 machine. Kemenah quickly showed his talent as he took the track championship at Buckeye Speedway in 1995 and 1996.

In early 1997 he made the transition to the UUI/Harble Motorsports team. It started out as a "one night ride" for the talented young man and has since turned into a long-lasting venture. The team is quite a family operation as Chad's brother Brian is mechanic on the car along with his nephew A.J. And success has followed Kemenah ever since.

With many other speedways not yet open for competition, many drivers from across the United States are expected to battle the All Star regulars on the D-shaped half mile clay oval at Oglethorpe.
