Kemenah slips past Blaney to score All Star Circuit of Champions win at Eldora Speedway


ROSSBURG – Chad Kemenah moved back past Dale Blaney on lap 21 to score a big victory in the All Star Circuit of Champions season finale at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg.

Kemenah started on the pole and held the lead for the first 14 laps before Blaney, who started third, went low in turn three and moved past Kemenah to take the point.

Kemenah, from Alveda, came back on lap 21 though, and took his car high to repass Blaney and take the victory.

“I needed to get back on the fence and get after it,” Kemenah said. “Either win it or wear it. It’s nice to win here and hopefully go win some more as we have more racing we are going to do.”

Blaney, the All Star 2015 champion, finished in the runner up spot while Steve Kinser was third. Tim Shaffer and Rico Abreu rounded out the top five. Abreu worked his way up from 22nd.

There was one big accident on lap 18 when Sheldon Haudenschild caught the outside wall and flipped in turn four. He was not injured.

In the winged NRA (National Racing Alliance) Sprint Invaders A-Feature, Kyle Sauder took the lead on lap two and had a big lead before he attempted to pass a lapped car on the outside in turn one. His car made hard contact with the wall and violently flipped before coming to rest in between turns one and two. He was not injured.

That put Ryan Ruhl, from Coldwater, Michigan, in front, and he led the rest of the way. winning by 1.5 seconds over Jared Hortsman. Devon Dobie was third while Randy Hannagan and Tanner Thorson rounded out the top five.

“I can’t believe it,” Ruhl said. “This is incredible. I can’t explain it. I was impressed just to race here, let alone win a race here. This is awesome.”

In the non-winged BOSS (Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series) Robert Ballou from Rocklin, California, mastered Eldora’s cushion. He built a 7.1 second lead when a caution came out due to debris.

When the race restarted, Bryan Clauson moved from third to second but couldn’t track down Ballou, who won by 1.1 seconds.

“We came here a couple of weeks ago for the Four Crown with a new race car and it wasn’t what it supposed to be,” Ballou said. “This thing is about 10 years old, and I’ve haven’t run it since 2011. We took all the parts off the other car, and this is one hell of a Maxim chassis. We busted our butts to get this thing finished. We got done about 2 p.m. today.”

Chad Boespflug, Hunter Schuerenberg and Scotty Weir finished third, fourth and fifth.

This was the final race at Eldora in 2015 with the next event being the Championship Awards Banquet in January 2016.
