STAUNTON, Va. – Federated Auto Parts and Ken Schrader Racing (KSR) have joined forces once again for the 2015 racing season. This year marks the 16th season that Federated has served as the primary sponsor of Schrader’s dirt and ARCA cars. Schrader will continue to compete in his dirt modified car as well as select ARCA races throughout the season.
“We are looking forward to another exciting season as the sponsor of Kenny and his racing teams,” said J.R. Bishop, director of motorsports and event marketing for Federated. “Kenny has become synonymous with Federated. He is very popular with our members and their customers, and he does a tremendous job representing Federated across the country, whether at the Federated 400, an ARCA race or a local dirt track event.”
Schrader will handle driving duties for his team in seven ARCA races this season, including two title-sponsorship races at the Salem (Ind.) Speedway, the Federated Auto Parts ARCA 200 on April 26 and the Federated Car Care ARCA Fall Classic on Sept. 19.
In addition to Schrader, KSR drivers will include Matt Tifft, Clay Campbell and Ross Kenseth. Tifft will make his return to the KSR team at the March 14 ARCA race at Mobile (Ala.) International Speedway. Martinsville Speedway President Clay Campbell is scheduled to drive the Federated ARCA car on May 1 at the Talladega Superspeedway. Campbell also drove the Federated car in the ARCA season opener at Daytona. Kenseth will drive the Federated ARCA car at the Chicagoland Speedway and Michigan International Speedway.
“With the drivers we have on board for this season, it looks as though we will have some exciting finishes and experience some great racing within the ARCA ranks,” said Schrader. “I’m looking forward to working with Matt, Clay and Ross.”
Federated also will sponsor Schrader in more than 50 dirt track races in the coming season and will host hospitality events for its members and customers at several of these races.
“Our dirt track sponsorship of Schrader Racing continues to grow each year,” said Bishop. “Kenny has a great time interacting with our members and customers at the track and his enthusiasm is contagious. Our guests really enjoy spending time with him and cheering him on as he competes in the Federated car.
