A dirt sprint car racers dream is to win the Knoxville Nationals title. In 2001, Danny Lasoski, driving a sprint car with Kistler Engines power, accomplished this feat. Tim Shaffer joined this elite status with his 2010 win in the CH Motorsports owned, Brian Kemenah crew chief team.
In August 2016, Kistler Engines has since been under the hood when the checkered flag waves for the coveted title a total of 5 times when Jason Johnson Racing won. Kistler Engines has Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions titles, including 2016 champs Rob & Rita Hunter, driven by Chad Kemenah with crew chief Brian Kemenah, a World of Outlaw championship, many “Fast times” and track records including Attica, Williams Grove and Rolling Wheels Speedway where Paul McMahan in 2015 achieved the title of the fastest dirt track speed record in the world.
