PONCE INLET, FL - The All Star Circuit of Champions sprint car series cars and drivers are busy preparing for the traditional slate of April events, all in Ohio.

Following the season-opening slate of eight Florida shows, fans up north are anxiously awaiting the Saturday, April 6 Eldora Speedway All Star show. Action at the half-mile speedplant in Rossburg, Ohio is always fast and furious. Last season, the All Star series visited Eldora four times, with Greg Wilson winning twice, and Chad Kemenah and All Star champion Kenny Jacobs each snaring a pair of victories.

The second April show is a doubleheader weekend at Janet and Doug Holbrook's Attica Raceway Park, located on the fairgrounds in Attica, OH. The Attica Coors Nationals are co-sanctioned by the Interstate Racing Association (IRA) with the Friday April 19 show paying $3,000 to win and Saturday's (April 20) Coors Nationals worth $7,000. In five shows at Attica last season, Byron Reed was the top All Star driver, recording a pair of wins with Rob Chaney, Jacobs and Danny Smith the other victors.

The month of April for the touring series wraps up on Saturday night April 27 at the Fremont Speedway, located on the Sandusky County Fairgrounds in Fremont. The race will also serve as the season opener for the popular speedway. In action at Fremont last season, the five different All Star winners were Kemenah, Rodney Duncan, Mark Keegan, Mike Wagner and Butch Schroeder.

Expected to see action on the full All Star April tour this season are drivers like Kenny Jacobs, Chad Kemenah, Dean Jacobs, Greg Wilson, Danny Smith, Mike Wagner, Bill Rose, Paul McMahan and Barry Ruble. Other drivers who plan on making the majority of the shows include Kelly Kinser, Byron Reed, Phil Gressman, Ed Lynch, Jr., Todd Kane and Butch Schroeder.
