Ken Schrader to Compete in SRX Race at I-55

Dirt racing and former NASCAR Cup Series veteran Ken Schrader will compete in the SRX event at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 on July 16, SRX announced May 3.

Schrader is the co-owner of the 0.3-mile dirt track and has multiple victories during his dirt racing career there.

“It’s super exciting for me to be working with Kenny again after knowing him for so long,” SRX CEO Don Hawk said in a press release. “He returns in 2022 as an SRX test driver, but more importantly a superstar driver in the race at I-55 Raceway. He belongs in there. I can’t wait for this race.”

HOT DOG, Kenny belongs in an SRX car for a full season, i finally got tickets this year for the South Boston event, too bad I-55 is abit far for me or I’d be there too. Enjoyed the series last year and glad they added different tracks this year; maybe next year will grab some different full time driver’s of old and add an additional week or two.
Would like to see additional dtiver shirts and track hat pins next. Lots of compliments on my Chase SRX shirt.
