Federated Auto Parts spokesperson Kenny Schrader will be one of the drivers in this summer’s Superstar Racing Experience (SRX) racing series. Schrader will compete with such racing legends as Kyle Busch, Helio Castroneves, Brad Keselowski and SRX founder Tony Stewart, Federated said.

“Federated is honored to be partnering with Kenny for his SRX race experience this summer,” said J.R.

As one of the greatest dirt track drivers of all time, Kenny is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser for the ESPN audience and will represent Federated in a first-class manner, as he always does.”

The SRX races will be broadcast on ESPN and the ESPN app under the iconic “ESPN Thursday Night Thunder” branding for six consecutive Thursday nights starting on July 13 at 9 p.m. The first race will be at the Stafford Motor Speedway in Springs, Connecticut.

Over the first two seasons of SRX, the six-race series has featured drivers from a variety of racing backgrounds with an emphasis on champion-level drivers.
