WILL RODGERS GEARS UP FOR GENERAL TIRE #ANYWHEREISPOSSIBLE200
CONCORD, N.C. (May 30, 2018) – Will Rodgers, a two-time NASCAR K&N Pro Series winner and new member of the NASCAR Next program is looking to continue his momentum from an eighth-place finish in last Thursday’s General Tire 150 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Rodgers, born in Maui, Hawaii in 1994, will compete in this Friday’s ARCA Racing Series Presented by Menards General Tire #AnywhereIsPossible200 at Pocono Raceway; his first visit to the historic raceway.
Pocono Raceway, also known as The Tricky Triangle, first opened in 1968. Conducting its first ARCA Racing Series event on the three-quarter mile oval in 1969, the series endured a fourteen-year hiatus before returning to the 2.5-mile triangle in 1983. Posting speeds close to 200 MPH into the first turn, Pocono Raceway’s long straightaways and tight turns make the track a unique character for drivers to conquer.
“I’m pumped up to be heading to Pocono Raceway this weekend in my No. 52 Drydene Performance Products Ford for Ken Schrader Racing,” said Rodgers. “From what I’ve heard, Pocono Raceway has characteristics much like a road course – that really excites me. I really hope to improve upon our eighth-place run in Charlotte.”
“Racing at Pocono Raceway is a tremendous opportunity for Drydene to showcase our brand. We are super excited to be here in our backyard to interact with our customers, employees and our loyal and growing fan base,” said Dave Klinger, president of Drydene Performance Products. “I’m confident that Will Rodgers and KSR will be very competitive and our hope is that we will be celebrating a great finish Friday night.”
