NASCAR Legend Ken Schrader Racing To Our Area

NASCAR star Ken Schrader makes a local appearance this weekend and he is not here just to sign autographs.  He will be racing a dirt modified race car at Lebanon Valley Speedway.

Schrader, a native of Fenton, Missouri, has had a long and distinguished career in a variety of national racing series culminating with Sprint Cup Series wins in NASCAR’s premier division at Talladega, Charlotte, Atlanta and Dover Downs.  He has sat on the pole for the Daytona 500 three times and has finished as high as second in the 500.

You might think that Schrader would be more comfortable on the high banks of Daytona International Speedway rather than the high banks of Lebanon Valley Speedway in West Lebanon, New York, but he certainly is no stranger to dirt track racing.  It is not uncommon for
Schrader to run dirt races at short tracks around the country during the week and then be NASCAR racing on the weekend.

Saturday night, Schrader will be running a dirt modified at the track known as the Valley of Speed as a teammate to 12 time high point champion Kenny Tremont.  Last year, Schrader also raced at the track and turned in a 15th place performance.

Schrader owns his own dirt late model team and dirt open wheel modified team as well as the Ken Schrader Racing ARCA series team.  Additionally, he has been a television broadcaster and is co-owner and promoter of the I-55 Raceway in Missouri.

For 2011, Schrader has hooked up as a driver on a part time basis in NASCAR’s elite division with a start-up team FAS Lane Racing, owned by former crew chief Frank Stoddard.  His next race in the FAS number 32 will be the Coke 600 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway on Memorial Day weekend.  But you can see him this weekend, right here in our area at the Valley of Speed.
