Kemenah Looking For A Ride
Chad Kemenah and the Hunter Racing Team will go in different directions in 2019, leaving Kemenah in search of a ride. The Findlay, Ohio native won back-to-back All Star Circuit of Champions championships with the team in 2016 and 2017.
“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 Monday in a release on the Chad Kemenah Racing Facebook page. “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.”
