FREMONT, OH - John Ivy turned in a strong run Saturday night at Fremont Speedway to win the All Star sprint 40-lap feature on Manufacturer's Night and Frankie Kerr night. The race paid Ivy $6,000 to win for his first career All Star win and his fourth Fremont win of 2000, which came over Chad Kemenah in a non-stop run. Over $9,000 in product was handed out to 37 drivers for Manufacturer's night and the race was run in front of a standing room only crowd. After doing a wing walk, an overjoyed Ivy said, "I just tried to get through lapped traffic as quick as I could." Standing beside Sid Eikelberry's Carousel Racing Draime-Chevrolet powered J&J on American Racer Tires, Ivy added, "We went to a smaller tire tonight, that was the key, it really locked down to the middle groove." "I really have to take my hat off to John," runner-up Kemenah said. "He did a beautiful job. We would have liked to win, but after a great last week, we'll take this," the pilot of Jim Harble's Gambler concluded. Kemenah started on the ButlerBuilt Hot Seat pole underneath Texan Travis Rilat while fast qualifier Ivy started sixth. Kemenah led at the start over fourth starting Shane Stewart, aboard Jr. Holbrook's Eagle. Kemenah used the high groove on the third-mile with Stewart running low as the top duo battled for the lead for three laps, with Kemenah maintaining control of the race. Ivy moved up to fourth and challenged Rilat for third by lap five, and after six laps of battle, Ivy took over third. Kemenah was fighting his way through heavy lapped traffic and Stewart closed again, with Ivy right on his bumper. Stewart made a low dive to try for the lead on lap 13, but a lapped car blocked his charge. Lap 16 saw Ivy ride the low groove off turn two into second place, while Kemenah pulled away a bit. At the mid-way point, Ivy reeled in the leader in more lapped traffic, and by lap 22 the leaders were side-by-side. Kemenah continued to use the high groove, with Ivy low and the low groove worked, propelling Ivy into the lead on lap 23 with a turn two pass. From then on, Ivy began to pull away, up to a full straightaway lead with 10 laps to go. As the laps would down, Ivy got tied up in traffic, allowing Kemenah to close to within two car lengths, but the high groove was not as fast as Ivy's groove and Ivy won by three car lengths. Stewart held on for third, saying, "the track was tough tonight." Paul McMahan came up from ninth to fourth at the end with 13th starter Greg Wilson fifth. Rilat held on for sixth with Rodney Duncan finishing seventh, winning the Team Simpson Racing Lucky Seven award. Phil Gressman was eighth ahead of Kevin Huntley and Kelly Kinser, who faded to tenth after starting third. The heats went to Kenny Jacobs, Byron Reed, Terry McCarl and Alvin Roepke. Chad Kemenah won the Georgia Marketing & Promotions B Main and Ed Lynch Jr. captured the Commercial Truck & Trailer Dash. A special TW Metals Dash was held for the four slowest qualifiers, paying $100 to win. It fell to Lee Potter. Potter then flipped in the B Main. It was also TW Metals Special Bonus Night, with $100 cash paid to race winner Ivy, sixth place finisher Rilat, 10th place Kinser, 11th place Todd Kane, 16th place Todd Gracey and the first B Main non-transfer driver, John Wisbon. The fans also made out, with 60 door prizes given away. The 50-50 winner took home $912 and he was visiting from Nigeria. Fremont Speedway presented Kerr with a belt buckle, customized listing his four All Star championships, and a commemorative clock, on the eve of his birthday. Roger Shammo copped the 25-lap 305 sprint main over Scott Kraylek, Bill Kraylek and Troy Vacarro. It was his first win of the season. <pre> Time Trials: 1. John Ivy, Carousel 20, 13.460; 2.
