FARMINGTON, MO -- Defending All Star champion Chad Kemenah led 40 caution-filled laps wire-to-wire to defeat Dale Blaney Saturday night at St. Francois Co. Raceway and win the Haulmark All Star sprint car feature. The win by Kemenah evened the score with the local drivers at SFCR as local hot shoe Tim Montgomery won here last year. Kemenah's Jim Harble-owned Eagle Chassis is powered by a Kistler engine and sponsorship help comes from John Bores, Underground Utilities and Kear's Speed Shop.

"We wanted to redeem ourselves after last year," Kemenah related from victory lane. "The race track is a real different shape here and it caught us all off kilter last year. We just wanted to get into the lead tonight and hoped the track would take rubber and it did and it just worked out for us."

Kemenah and Jeremy Campbell brought the field down to the green flag, with Campbell taking the initial lead, but a Rod Crabtree spin nixed the start. For the second start, Kemenah led but quick timer Kelly Kinser spun and was hit by Tim Montgomery and Brock Mayes, sending Kinser and Mayes to the tail for the restart. The third time was the charm for Kemenah as he led over Campbell, but another caution flew with one lap in the books for a Joey Montgomery spin. Kemenah remained on top when the green appeared again as fifth starter Dale Blaney was on the move, despite a smoking engine. Blaney passed Terry McCarl for third then breezed by Campbell for second once the leaders got into lapped traffic. As the top three ran nose to tail, McCarl held fourth with Ricky Logan and Paul May battling for fifth. Kemenah expertly worked lapped traffic, keeping Blaney, whose car finally stopped smoking, at bay.

By lap 27 Logan began pressuring McCarl as May waited for an opening to pass the duo. Campbell made a mistake a couple of laps later, getting sideways in turn two and dipping into the infield, coming back out on the track in seventh instead of third. Then Campbell and May made contact while battling for sixth on lap 34, bringing out another caution. Kemenah pulled away from Blaney on this restart and again following the final restart two circuits later. McCarl took one shot at passing Blaney on the final restart, but Blaney held him off as Kemenah pulled away to a four car length win over Blaney's Andrews Motorsports No. 72. McCarl held on for third with Logan fourth and 12th starting Jerrod Hull fifth. Next were Danny Smith, Greg Wilson, Tim Montgomery who ran with a flipped up nose wing, Kinser, back from the tail and Phil Gressman on a very cold and windy night.

The B&B Products heat went to Alex Shanks, the Engler Machine and Tool heat was won by Terry Babb and the TP Wings heat fell to Jesse Gianetto. The University of Northwestern Ohio B Main winner was Paul May. Crown Battery heat race winner Campbell captured the Haulmark Dash for the second night in a row and Kinser was the Huggins Cams Fast Time qualifier.
