Haulmark All Star Sprint Results - Attica Raceway Park - Fri. 4/11/03 By Scott Hall ATTICA, OH - Chad Kemenah recorded his first win of the year Friday night at Attica Raceway Park in the Haulmark All Star sprint car 30-lap Coor's Nationals preliminary feature. It was Attica's season opener which paid the driver of Jim Harble's Eagle Chassis $4,000 to. Kemenah's win came over Paul McMahan and a hard charging Greg Wilson, who came up from 15th starting spot to record third on the last lap.

"My brother made me look good tonight, Kemenah recalled. "He made my job easy from the time we pulled in the gate. It was just perfect all night long. I have to thank the Harble family, John from Underground Utilities, Kear's Speed Shop, Kistler Engines and Hoosier for an awesome tire."

"We started catching him and our car got better near the end," McMahan said of second. "We just didn't have enough for Chad tonight. We brought our Miller Rigging J&J home second and I can't complain a bit. I found the middle of the track towards the middle of the race and got going pretty good."

Wilson was happy with third, "We just stood up over the steering wheel and got after it a little bit," he related. "Luckily the big guy upstairs kept us on the racetrack and not on the horse track when the guys got bottled up on the bottom. We had the right American Race tires on tonight. About halfway through they got locked down real good and our Hampshire engine was running great."

For the start of the 10-mile contest it was Mark Keegan on the pole with Rob Chaney alongside and Jason Johnson and Kenny Jacobs in row two. Keegan jumped out into the lead at the start in the high groove, with Chaney second until he slid off turn two on the second go round, putting Kemenah into second. Kemenah, who started sixth, kept inching in on Keegan's bumper and dove low under Keegan exiting turn four to lead lap six. Keegan was now second ahead of Johnson, Jacobs and Paul McMahan.

The action was stopped on lap eight when Byron Reed, who started 17th, got into trouble and flipped once on the frontstretch, bringing out the red. Kemenah led when the race resumed, and had built a half-straightaway lead over Keegan when Sean Chaney spun to a stop on lap 10. When the green reappeared, Kemenah jumped out into the lead again with Johnson making a low groove pass of Keegan for second. Kemenah pushed out to another half-straightaway lead and the action was really heating up for second third among Johnson, Keegan, Jacobs and McMahan. Lap 15 saw Johnson and Keegan side-by-side at the start-finish line with Keegan a nose ahead for second a lap later. Johnson retook second the next go round and Keegan was ahead of him again the next lap. As Kemenah entered heavy lapped traffic, Keegan held second as McMahan challenged him.

On lap 25, McMahan was right on his bumper and on lap 26 McMahan went high around Keegan for second as Wilson was now fifth. As Kemenah pulled away in heavy lapped traffic, Wilson put on a last lap high side charge to sneak into third at the finish line over Keegan and Kinser. The final rundown was Kemenah, McMahan, Wilson, Keegan, Kinser, Jacobs, Dean Jacobs, up from 11th, Lee Jacobs, Phil Gressman in the Holbrook 8H and a fading Johnson.

The Crown Battery heat fell to Danny Smith, the B&B Products heat went to Byron Reed, the Engler Machine and Tool heat was won by 16-year-old Brandon Wimmer and the TP Wings heat fell to Craig Keel. Barry Ruble won the last chance race and Andy James won the Outerwears Pre-filters C Main. Lee Jacobs won the United Aluminum Window Sales & Consulting B Main and Chad Kemenah was the Huggins Cams Fast Time qualifier.
