The career year continues for World of Outlaws driver Chad Kemenah. The Findlay, Ohio resident has already bested his previous season marks and the series is just reaching the midway point. With a win at his favorite track, Eldora Speedway, and another at Lawrenceburg Speedway in Indiana, Kemenah finds himself 7th in points.

"It really has been a career year for me," Kemenah told K&N. "With the two wins and seven top-five finishes, and we also had quick time twice, so we're going pretty strong this year. If it weren't for some bad luck, we actually would've had more quality finished and possibly even another win in the book. But some things are out of our control."

Kemenah said his team made some adjustments to the car in the offseason, allowing him to be more consistent behind the wheel, and the results are showing. Kemenah has been one of the fastest cars on the circuit at almost every track the WoO have run. While the bad luck has hurt him in the points chase, Kemenah thinks he can still makeup some ground.

"The key to gaining points on anybody is to be consistent and we've done more of that this year," Kemenah said. "It's just unfortunate when bad luck is what has you back in points. We think we can get some more wins this year too."
Winning any race is great but some pay more than others, and the Nationals happens to be the biggest sprint car payout in history.

Kemenah said the best moment of the year so far had to be his win at Eldora, adding, "I've always wanted to get a World of Outlaws win at Eldora and it finally happened." But Kemenah, like many other sprint car drivers, is already starting to peek ahead to a race that could define his career- the world famous Knoxville Nationals, a race in which he finished second back in 2004.

"Sometimes it is hard to not look ahead because you can't get the cart before you have the horse, but you do have to plan ahead somewhat so you can be fully prepared for that race. It's a very tough week on all the competitors and we want to be on top of our game when it gets here."

When asked if a win at the Nationals would be more important then his win at Eldora this year, Kemenah responded, "Easy one, the Nationals! A huge amount of drivers can say they've won at Eldora, but not half that amount can say they've won the Knoxville Nationals."

Kemenah also pointed out that a win at the event would help his privateer team in their battle with cars owned by NASCAR stars Tony Stewart and Kasey Kahne. "It would mean the world to me and our race team to win the Nationals, it's what we work toward all year. Winning any race is great but some pay more than others, and the Nationals happens to be the biggest sprint car payout in history so pulling off a win would be the best thing that could happen to our team."

Kemenah did add that he thought this year was his best shot at winning the biggest sprint car race in the world, saying that his team's strong start this year is encouraging. "I think our whole team has high hopes for a good finish. We are feeling confident that we can race competitively against the larger dollar teams and keep the car up front."

But with the Nationals still a month away, Kemenah and his team are focusing on getting through July with a few more trips to victory lane, and when they get there, it will be with K&N Filters on the car. "K&N has provided us with winning products for our racecar and it's very important to have good products on your car that are also reliable so you can keep your car running up front all the time," Kemenah said. "This is a very competitive sport and you need a lot of help to be successful. We are happy to have K&N onboard with us this year."
