SOMERSET, Ky. – Officials from the Brucebilt Performance Iron-Man Modified Series have announced that former NASCAR veteran Ken Schrader will be in competition with the series for back-to-back nights April 23-24.
The tour visits Boyd’s Speedway in Ringgold, Ga., on Friday, April 23, and Wartburg (Tenn.) Speedway on Saturday, April 24. Both events will pay $1,200 to win and $125 to start.
The appearance by Schrader at both venues will not only see Schrader in competition, but the likable racer will also host a meet-and-greet with the race fans and will be available for autographs as well.
A native of Fenton, Mo., Schrader’s passion for motorsports has been well documented throughout a career that now spans more than 40 years.
Starting his racing career just after he turned 16 years of age, Schrader has made it a lifelong goal to race as often as possible and in as many different types of race cars as possible and he has become a great ambassador for motorsports at all levels.
Schrader is the 1982 USAC Silver Crown Series champion, the 1983 USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series champion, the 1985 NASCAR Cup Series rookie-of-the-year honoree and a three-time pole winner for the Daytona 500.
He’s also a recipient of the National Dirt Late Model Hall of Fame’s Sportsman Award (2009) and an 18-time winner in the ARCA Menards Series.
