FREMONT, Ohio – Like the song says: “I’m coming home, I’m coming home…tell the world I’m coming home.” Fremont Speedway has been called “the home of the All Stars” and after a three year hiatus, Tony Stewart’s Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Cars Presented by Mobil 1 will return to “The Track That Action Built,” on Sunday, May 26.
Fremont Speedway has been a home to All Star Circuit of Champions competition for over 35 years, making 122 appearances since June 21, 1980. All Star travelers last visited The Track That Action Built during the two-day Jim Ford Classic, Sept. 18 and 19, 2015 with Tim Shaffer and Ryan Smith taking the wins.
The May 26 All Star Circuit of Champions appearance at Fremont Speedway will be presented by The Computer Man, East State Street, Fremont.
“A lot of people helped bring the All Stars back to Fremont Speedway and we appreciate all the cooperation. It truly was a team effort. Fremont Speedway has played an important part in the history of the All Stars and vice versa. Hopefully this leads to more than one show next year. I’m happy for our great fans and race teams we were able to get this accomplished,” said Ryan Schiets, Chairman of the committee in charge of operating the speedway.
“We are excited to be back at Fremont Speedway. Fremont has been a big part of the All Star history,” said Tony Stewart, owner of the All Star Circuit of Champions.
“We want to thank and acknowledge the help of Ross Paulson of the Computer Man in Fremont and Waynesfield Raceway Park Promoter Shane Helms who worked with us to make this exciting event happen,” Schiets added.
With the addition of the All Star date on Sunday, May 26, the 2019 schedule for Fremont Speedway has been adjusted from the original release. The All Star visit will be part of a Memorial Day weekend double-header with the FAST sprints visiting Fremont Speedway on Saturday, May 25 on American Powersports Armed Services Night along with the 305 sprints. The dirt trucks will not be in action that Saturday but will be part of the Sunday, May 26 event.
Also, the championship night for the new All Pro Aluminum Cylinder Heads/Kistler Racing Products Attica Fremont Championship Series (AFCS) Presented by the Baumann Auto Group for the 410 sprints and the KS Sales and Services AFCS Presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales has been moved to Friday, Sept. 6.
“We are looking at making the May 25 and September 6 events fan appreciation nights by lowering admission prices. The Friday night move was to accommodate what Shane is doing at Waynesfield for an event there on Saturday, September 7,” explained Schiets.
Fremont Speedway has hosted the All Star Circuit of Champions 122 times; only Eldora Speedway has hosted the All Stars for more events in series history.
Six time All Star champion Dale Blaney of Hartford, Ohio has the most series wins at Fremont with 18, his last coming in September 2014. Jack Hewitt and Tim Shaffer are tied for second in series wins at the track with 10 victories each. In total 46 different drivers have taken All Star checkered flags at Fremont Speedway in the 121 appearances.
