    Weekend Highlights
    -Cancellations. Well, simply put most tracks shied away from running against Eldora's rescheduled World 100. Both Moler Raceway Park and Midway Speedway recently announced they were removing their dates on the 12th and 13th respectively. So, with the season winding down you've got two options in Ohio this weekend.

    -Eldora Speedway will host 2 nights for the world 100, Friday as prelim night #2 and Saturday night the big finale of the World 100. You can expect that most of the nation's best late model drivers in attendance and with the season winding down, probably even more invaders. One surprise entrant that will need a little help from mother nature is Donny Schatz. He filed an entry for the World 100 but will need a little help from Ma Nature to be able to make it to Eldora due to his WoO Sprint commitments. Having gotten the oppurtunity to go to the Eldora Dream this year I can definitely highly recommend attending going there for the World. Racing was fantastic and program was top notch. Top it off with WoO sprints and the season championship for the Eldora Mods and you've got one fantastic weekend of racing on tap.

    -Skyline Speedway will be running a rescheduled Late Model race as well, their "big one" so to speak. The Harvest 50 will be ran on Saturday the 13th and with many of the top drivers at Eldora the field is more open than ever for an upset winner adding his name to a list of world class drivers. With a full show of Mods, Sport Mods, and Compacts on tap this show will certainly prove to be a fantastic event for all. General admission will remain at their regular show price at $15 for their biggest event, which is pretty cool of them to do as well. If anyone is in the area and doesn't want to travel or spend the money required to go to Eldora, then this is the option for you.

    Weekend Plans
    -Going to go pick up new car from my parents this Sunday/Monday. Was looking into going to Eldora but I think I'm just gonna call it a season unless something pops up in late October that I could go to. Would love to go to the Tusky 50 but I'm getting my wisdom teeth pulled the day before soooo not sure if that's the best Idea.

    Fair enough. It’s expensive to own and field a car and can’t expect someone to do it forever. Glad they were able to have some success while doing it!

    Hunter Racing tweeted a list of accomplishments, along with “time to retire the 10H”
    Welp.

If the 10H plans to run the ascoc then I think he's going to miss kemenah. He must want to win more races instead of finishing good every race.
    Well lets not get on Blaney to hard especially when you think about how Chad was before he got into that Hunter car. He wasn't doing that well either and surprisingly he found his way back to form. Maybe the same can be said about Blaney as well. Think he is a very capable driver and needs to find the right car and team just like anybody else. Take for instance Paul McMahon and not being able to drive for several years and this year he seemed to find the right team that fits what he does while somebody else gets into his old car and is doing quite well in it at the end of this season.

    Think some are jumping the gun a little bit about this rumor as well right now. Let's wait and see what happens.

    Best luck to Chad on getting a new ride.
    He has been a consistant driver.
    Maybe even do well in the new FAST series if not on all star trail.
    If the low rider gets the ride, wish him well. He has had a bad last couple of years with ride and injury.

    Unless someone has some inside information there is nothing to indicate that they are selling out per Kemenah's press release.

    To be fair I think they finished right about where most everyone guessed they would with how strong the all stars were this year.

    Chad Kemenah Changing Directions In 2019
    By: Joe Burrage

    Chad Kemenah and the Hunter Racing Team will be going in different directions for the 2019 season and Six Time Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions Champion will be seeking a ride.
    “I have to thank Rob and Rita Hunter for the past four seasons of racing, they have provided my brother and I with a tremendous opportunity,” said Kemenah. “During the past four seasons our entire race team accomplished a lot with two All Star Championships, Rob and Rita’s first World of Outlaws win at Fremont Speedway, and two top ten finishes at the Knoxville Nationals.”
    “I would also like to thank Champion Racing Oil, they have been racing with me for the past eight years and I can’t thank them enough for all their support and I look forward to working with them in the future,” said Kemenah. Also many thanks to all of our partners with Hunter Racing, Maxim Chassis, Kistler Racing Engines, JRC Transportation, JLT, DKW Transport, Bonnell’s Rod Shop, Mark Burch, Real Racing Wheels, Factory Kahne Shocks, Top Flight Wings, FSR Radiators, Brilex and KSE Racing Products.
    “In closing, I would like to thank my brother Brian Kemenah for all his hard work for the past four years,” says Kemenah. “Brian is one of the best crew chiefs in the business and I can’t tell you how much he has helped me during the past four seasons and we had a hell of a run. I also have to thank everyone that is associated with this team, good help is hard to find and when we had extra help it was always top quality.”
    Chad will be looking for a ride for the 2019 season and can be contacted at 419-348-2222. We look forward to seeing everyone at the track again in 2019.
