During a recent interview, racing legend Ken Schrader mentioned that he’d like to run the 5th annual NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) race at Eldora Speedway. Schrader has participated in the summer classic each year since its inception. Eldora is the only dirt race scheduled among NASCAR top-tier series.
Almost immediately, his phone was ringing with offers from several truck teams. A call from Jeff Bolen, owner of the #66 Chevrolet Silverado and Bolen Motorsports, was the ideal call. Schrader will race with crew chief Paul Clapprood making the calls from the pit box. Thu, Jul 13, 2017 12:52:00 PM

Can Ken Schrader go to victory lane two nights in a row? Schrader won the UMP Modified feature Friday at Terre Haute, Ind. and got the Federated Car Care ARCA Fall Classic off to a roaring start Saturday by capturing the Menards Pole Award presented by Ansell.

"That was 20 laps last night, this one will be 200," Schrader said. "We’ll see." Schrader, 60, will start alongside of J.J. Haley, 16, an Indiana native that qualified second. Schrader extended his record as the oldest short track pole winner in series history. Haley, incidentally, is the youngest pole winner in series history. He captured the pole at Elko Speedway as a 15-year-old in 2014.

Ken Schrader turns 60 years young on May 29. He's also more than ready to turn laps at one of his favorite short tracks when the Menards 200 presented by Federated Car Care comes to Toledo Speedway Saturday and Sunday, May 16-17.

Schrader dominated the 200-lap race at Salem Speedway last month. In doing so, he surpassed his own mark of being the oldest winner in ARCA Racing Series history. The win at Salem was his 18th ARCA victory overall and came in his 75th career ARCA start. "That only means we want to be an older winner at Toledo," said Schrader, who's won five ARCA races at Toledo reaching back to his first win there in 1997, and his last in 2013.

Ken Schrader (No. 52 Federated Auto Parts Chevrolet) broke his own record as the oldest winner in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards history, winning the Federated Auto Parts 200 at Salem (IN) Speedway.

Schrader, who turns 60 next month, held several challengers over the last 50 laps to win for the first time at Salem since 1999. Kyle Weatherman finished second, Dominic Ursetta third and J.J. Haley fourth in front of a big crowd under sunny skies at Salem Speedway. It was the 97th ARCA race at the high-banked, half-mile.-ARCA Racing Series

Ken Schrader won only in the hard luck category last year at Salem Speedway. While he was fast in both ARCA Racing Series events at Salem in 2014, he just couldn’t find the good luck to match.

Schrader, whose one and only ARCA win at Salem was in 1999, was leading last year’s spring race inside of five laps to go when he got tangled up with Kyle Weatherman as he was about to put him a lap down. The incident caved in the right-front fender, causing the tire to go down, which sent him into the turn one wall. He limped home eighth. "In the fall race, had an issue…went a bunch of laps down…got a bunch of laps back…finished fifth. We just didn’t have any luck last year at Salem. I wrecked my truck on the way to test…never did get to test. Then, in the fall, I fell down on my bike heading to the track. I’m hoping this year’s goes a little smoother." Schrader was en route to Salem on his motorcycle when he went down on wet, slippery pavement on an on-ramp leading to the expressway. Schrader wasn’t broken, but plenty sore by the time he made it to the track for the race.

Expect to see a lot of Ken Schrader Racing (KSR) on the ARCA Racing tour in 2015.

The No. 52 Federated Auto Parts KSR Chevrolet Impala team, which finished sixth in 2014 owner points with three drivers, is expected to return in 2015 with much the same cast of drivers to include Schrader, Martinsville Speedway track president Clay Campbell and, more than likely, 18-year-old Matt Tifft. "Right now, we’ve got Clay Campbell in for Daytona and Talladega," Schrader said. "I can tell you that I’ll be driving in the first Salem race, Toledo, Winchester, IRP (Lucas Oil Raceway), DuQuoin and the last Salem for sure, maybe more. Outside of that, I’m confident that you’ll see some Matt Tifft appearances in there too." Campbell finished third at Daytona in Schrader’s car last year.-ARCA Racing

Though the Mudsummer Classic at Eldora Speedway marked Ken Schrader's first race of the year in any NASCAR national series, he's quick to point out that he's far from retired.

"This is our 14th race in July," Schrader said Wednesday, the 23rd day of the month. "Yeah, so we've been keeping busy." Schrader, 59, looked right at home back in NASCAR, driving to a steady fourth-place finish in the second NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event on the half-mile dirt track. It was his second straight impressive Eldora performance; he became the sport's oldest pole winner in any national series and led the first 15 laps before fading to a 14th-place effort in last season's inaugural

Ken Schrader, in just his second ARCA stock car start at historic Winchester (Indiana) Speedway, was fastest in both practice sessions and won the Menards Pole Award presented by Ansell with an ARCA qualifying record of 15.826 seconds, or 113.737 mph.

It was in between the two practice sessions that he took a short nap. "I took that nap and was kind of re-energized," he said. "It took me awhile to get going in the second practice session, though. I think I forgot everything I learned from the first session. It’s a fast track," Schrader added. "Anytime a track stays around for 100 years, it must be doing something right."

Ken Schrader will hardly have time to take his helmet off over the next two weeks, and that’s just fine with him.

Through an interesting assortment of dirt track racing on Illinois and Missouri bullrings in his own Federated Auto Parts modified, the 59-year-old veteran will cap it all off with an ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards grand finale at historic Winchester Speedway in the Herr’s Chase the Taste 200 presented by Federated Car Care Sunday, July 6. Over two week’s time, Schrader will have raced in as many as 12 events, nearly every night of the week.
