By: Joe Burrage

This past weekend Chad Kemenah was in action with the World of Outlaws at the Kings Speedway in Hanford, California and the Perris Auto Speedway located in Perris, California and Chad Kemenah left the Golden State feeling very good about there performance.

On Friday night Kemenah set the tone early in qualifying by picking up his first quick time award of the year then he was involved in one of the best World of Outlaws A-Mains of the year when he and Donny Schatz battled hard for the last 10-Laps of the race. Schatz would eventually get the upper hand on Kemenah but the four time All Star Champion gave it everything he had and was excited with a second place finish.

“This is what can happen when we get a perfect racetrack to race on, multiple lead changes and slide jobs all over the place it was a great race and I am glad the fans got there moneys worth tonight,” said Kemenah. “We had a great car, I really wanted to win this one but Schatz was able to get around us and hold on but we are knocking on the door and soon or later this No.63 car will be in victory lane.”

The following night Kemenah made the long haul to the Perris Auto Speedway looking to keep the momentum going and he did just that. For the second night in a row Kemenah set quick time with a very impressive lap of 14.232 and that set the tone for the rest of the evening.

Kemenah went onto to finish third in his heat race on a very fast racetrack that was pretty difficult to pass on. Starting in the sixth position for the Dash, Kemenah played it cool for the short six lap Dash and he would finish in the sixth position.

After the Dash was completed Kemenah and crew member Brandon Ikenberry discussed what they wanted to do with the car and the proper changes were made. The feature event was a quick one and Kemenah was able to make his way into the fifth position and hold off Joey Saldana for the last five laps of the race. Kemenah would finish in the fifth position which is his best ever finish at the Perris Auto Speedway.

“The track tonight was super fast and pretty hard to pass on,” said Kemenah. “Our main goal was to try and get a top five finish and we did that tonight and last night. This has been a by far the best West Coast trip I have ever had and I have to thank my wife Tracy, Brandon Ikenberry who has worked so hard the past few weeks, Garrett Ishii for letting us stay at his place for the past month, Tony Depalma of Radio City Hospital, along with Bob Hampshire, K&N Air Filters, Champion Racing Oil and Maxim Chassis for all of there support. We are taking it one race at a time right now and we will make our way to El Paso Speedway Park in El Paso, Texas looking for another solid run.”
