In Burbank, California, the 2003 Auto Racing All-American Team was named today. The drivers were chosen by members of the motorsports press. All Star sprint car champion Chad Kemenah received Honorable Mention honors in the short track category. Kemenah, along with the rest of the top All Stars, will be feted at the series awards ceremony this Friday night Dec. 19 in Dayton, OH.

Short Track, which previously comprised both open wheel and stock car series, now is strictly for open wheel racers and was dominated by USAC triple crown champion J.J. Yeley and World of Outlaws king Steve Kinser, the same two as a year ago. Yeley, winning the Silver Crown, Sprint and Midget titles as well as setting a new USAC season victory record of 24 wins, is an All-America for just the second time. Kinser, however, upon winning his 18th WoO title, extended his own absolute All-America records -- 16th time on the First Team and the 21st time overall.

Earning Honorable Mention were Sebastien Bourdais from CART, Jeff Gordon and Kevin Harvick from NASCAR Winston Cup, Tommy Riggins from Grand-Am GTS, Marco Werner from ALMS Prototypes, Doug Kalitta from NHRA Top Fuel, Clay Millican from IHRA Top Fuel, Chad Kemenah from the All Star Circuit of Champions, Kevin Cywinski from ASA stock cars, Shane Huffman from the USAR Hooters Cup, Scott Taylor from CORR short-course off-road, and Cort Wagner from Grand-Am GT.
