FREMONT, OH - Yes, you can go home again. Frankie Kerr scored an impressive hometown victory Tuesday night at Fremont Speedway in the 18th annual All Star sprint Ohio Speedweek 40-lap feature. The feature paid Kerr $6,500 to win, with the added $1,000 courtesy of the Fremont Jaycees and $500 for the Baumann Automotive lucky fan bonus. Ed Williams was the lucky fan who also earned $500 as he drew Kerr's number in a pre-race drawing. The race marked the return of Speedweek to the Sandusky Fairgrounds oval for the first time since 1997 and the sold out covered grandstand was packed with fans hanging from the rafters. Kerr lost the lead to Greg Wilson in lapped traffic on lap 27, but regained it on lap 29 and won by two car lengths over Wilson and 20th starting Rodney Duncan.

Phil Gressman started on the ButlerBuilt Hot Seat pole with Kerr alongside, but the first start was aborted when Kevin Huntley flipped easily in turn three and was collected by Todd Gracey before a full lap was in. Gressman led the early part of the race in Dwight Reidling's Eagle with Kerr second and Kenny Jacobs third. By lap 13 Kerr was right on Gressman's back bumper in lapped traffic. The leaders came up on the lapped car of Jerrod Hull and Gressman drove over Hull's right rear tire, allowing Kerr to grab the lead and Gressman ended up with a flat right front tire, causing him to execute a 360 degree spin, then stop on the track with the flat.

Kerr now led over Wilson, who started seventh, Jacobs, Danny Smith, Kelly Kinser and Duncan. Kerr maintained the lead in the inside groove with Wilson right behind him as Duncan used the middle and high grooves to move through the pack. By lap 25 Wilson was all over Kerr in traffic, and he took the lead with an outside move in turn two on lap 27 when Kerr was boxed in by traffic. Once Kerr got past the backmarkers, he went under Wilson going down the backstretch to regain the lead on lap 29, leading the final quarter of the race. Wilson closed again the last two laps in dense lapped traffic, but Kerr held on for the big payday.

"Last night was the worst of my life," Kerr said of his Monday night race at Wayne Co. "But it sure is great to come home. We switched to this car which we ran Sunday night at Attica. It's a pretty awesome little race car." His machine is a Kistler-Chevrolet powered J&J owned by Stan Shoff and rode on Hoosier Tires.

"Scott Lucius gave us a heck of a race car and Bob Hampshire had that thing darn near perfect," runner-up Wilson related, referring to the new sponsor of his Gambler, Lucius Welding and Fabricating.

Duncan put in an amazing passing performance on a tough track for third, earning the $100 TW Metals nightly bonus. "Usually I give Andy Potter credit for everything, but tonight he drew a 57 pill for time trials so I'm going to blame him for everything," Duncan said with a smile. "He had this thing great."

Jacobs held on for fourth, holding off a determined Smith with ninth starting Kinser sixth. Alvin Roepke finished seventh, winning the Team Simpson Racing Lucky Seven award. Kasey Kahne finished eighth, earning the second TW Metals nightly cash bonus, ahead of Byron Reed, up from 13th and John Wisbon..

The heats went to Kevin Huntley, Todd Gracey, Greg Wilson and Chad Kemenah. Kerr won the Georgia Marketing & Promotions B Main. Smith captured the Commercial Truck & Trailer Dash with Jason Dukes the C main winner and Steve Suever won the last chance race.

In the 20 lap 350 econo sprint main, Bryan Scott was the winner over Roger Shammo, Mark Lang, Bill Kraylek and Scott Kraylek.
