Harold Kemenah. Affectionately known as “Flakey Jake” by many, Harold’s racing ventures came in 1966 by painting cars for hall of famers Jim Roepke, Jim Ford, Harold Van Ness, Don Eckhardt and Len Malloy. He also worked on the USAC car owned by Loren Weyant and driven by Jimmy Smith and Rocky Fisher. In 1976 he purchased his own sprint car driven by hall of famer Al Liskai. In 1977 Harold hired hall of famer Johnny Beaber to drive his familiar #3x. Beaber would drive Harold’s sprint car to track championships at Limaland Speedway in 1977 and 1978. After that Kenny Jacobs and Ed Haudenschild drove his cars before hall of famer Jack Hewitt took over in 1979 and 1980, travelling all over the country with the World of Outlaws. Harold’s son, Brian became very involved with the team during the Hewitt years. In 1980, hall of famer Fred Linder took over Harold’s #3x and would win the All Star Circuit of Champions titles in 1984 and 1986. Harold’s last season of owning a car was in 1987 with Al Hager behind the wheel.
