Hahn Looks Back At Part-Time USAC Runs

DU QUOIN, Ill. — Today many fans recognize Emmett Hahn as the co-founder of the widely popular Chili Bowl Nationals run annually in Tulsa, Okla. However, with the passing of time some forget Hahn was also a terrific racer. In fact, in the supermodified era Hahn’s 28 NCRA wins tops the charts. “I was teammates with Steve Kinser,” Hahn said with a chuckle. It was then that they came over to me and said, ‘OK, you can let it down.’”. As his career wound down, Hahn realized he had one more itch to scratch. There is no reason for Hahn to worry about what could have been, but many have speculated why he didn’t make a move to Indianapolis and take on the national championship trail. “In 1973 I had a chance to run the speedway,” Hahn said.
