Chad Kemenah has been hired to drive the No. 10H sprint car owned by Rob and Rita Hunter during the 2015 season.
In addition, Brian Kemenah has joined the team and will serve as crew chief on the No. 10H next year.
The team plans to run the full Renegade Sprint Series schedule next year as well as occasional World of Outlaw races, the Knoxville Nationals and possibly some 360 sprint car races.
“We are very excited to have Chad Kemenah as our driver and Brian Kemenah as our crew chief for the upcoming 2015 season,” said Rob Hunter. “Brian and Chad bring a great deal of experience to our team, they both understand what it takes to win races on and off the track. They also take care of their equipment and they both have had a great deal of success in high profile races, not to mention they are also great with the fans. We are really looking forward to the upcoming season.”
This is the first time in eight years that the Kemenah brothers will be working together.
“I am very excited about getting the opportunity to race with my brother again. He has been coming to the races with me for the last month, helping me with the car and it feels like we never stopped racing together. I’m already comfortable with him setting the car up and it’s a great feeling,” said Chad Kemenah.
“My wife Tracy and my father-in-law Bob Hampshire have supported me enormously over the years and I couldn’t have done it without them or the support of our sponsors, but the time has come for us to leave the car owner role,” Chad Kemenah said. “I never really intended on being a car owner, but it was just the cards we were dealt at the time. I am looking forward to getting back to my main focus as a driver again. I think with my brother’s help and Rob Hunter as my new car owner, we are going to put together a tough team. I couldn’t be more excited about this new deal that Rob and Rita have put together for us. I never thought I would have another chance at such a good ride with a car owner that can provide all the pieces for a successful race team and the bonus is that I have my brother back as my mechanic.”
The No. 10H was previously driven by Danny Holtgraver, who recently left the team to drive the Phoenix Racing No. 59 sprint car.
