Kemenah wins thriller at Fremont; Foos earns 305 victory;

By Brian Liskai


FREMONT, Ohio – Chad Kemenah was forced to adjust his line during the 410 sprint feature and he made it work to perfection, taking the lead with just two laps to go to claim the Spanky's Pizza of Carey $4,100 top prize at Fremont Speedway Saturday on Willie’s Sales and Service Night.


Kemenah, a Fremont, Ohio native, battled very hard with Caleb Griffith the final eight laps, with the pair making slight contact at one point. Kemenah had actually taken the lead on lap 23 of the 30-lap feature but a caution put Griffith back to the point. On the ensuing restart Griffith went to the bottom to block but Kemenah was able to make his Liz Matus Racing machine work the middle and high line and finally got around Griffith on lap 28 and held on for his 13th career Fremont win. It was his first win at “The Track That Action Built” since defeating the World of Outlaws in 2016.


“I have a car owner (Johnny Garvin) is at home…he’s setting so I can race. This is pretty cool…this is actually bad ass. My hat goes off to Caleb. He raced me perfect…that’s how you want to race. I can’t thank my nephew AJ (Havens) enough. Due to my thought process here, we’ve been experimenting a lot and I told him for the feature go back and do what you know how to do. As you could see a week ago my experimenting went horribly wrong. I can’t thank Paul Kistler, Maxim Chassis, Liuna, Gary Bretz with North Baltimore Meats, Alternative Power Source, Shawn Loken…everyone that helps out on this team including my wife and kids, AJ’s kids. We have a lot of fun,” said Kemenah beside his Gill Construction, Garvin Scrap Metal backed #15K.


It was the second night of the All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series Presented by the Baumann Auto Group.


Matt Foos gave his dad, Dave, a former sprint car mechanic, a great birthday present Saturday…a victory. Foos battled with Brandon Moore throughout the 25 laps of the Fremont Federal Credit Union 305 Sprint feature before driving to his eighth career Fremont win.


It was the second night of the NAPA Auto Parts of Bryan AFCS Presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales for the 305 sprints.


“We got my dad on the wrenches. Got him out of retirement. He came with us last night (at Attica Raceway Park where he was the hard charger) and it showed. We’re a good combo. I can give him a lot of feedback,” said Foos beside his Speed Shark Graphics, 818 Club, DR’s Powerlab, CS9 Chassis, Kear’s Speed Shop and Berryman Racing Shocks backed #12.


Fremont Speedway will be back in action with a huge double-header Saturday and Sunday, July 4 and 5 as part of the Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions Ohio Sprint Speedweek. The dirt trucks will be on the racing card Saturday with the 305 sprints joining the All Stars on Sunday. Gates will open at 3 p.m. both days.
