Drydene Performance Products Adds Races With Ken Schrader Racing

JONESTOWN, PA (June 6, 2018) – Drydene Performance Products has announced the addition of three races with Ken Schrader Racing (KSR) for the 2018 ARCA (Automobile Racing Club of America) Racing Series presented by Menards.

The additional races include Michigan International Speedway and Chicagoland Speedway for Will Rodgers, along with a return to ARCA competition by racing veteran Ken Schrader at Gateway Motorsports Park in Madison, IL on June 22.

“The exposure that Team Drydene has garnered from this partnership to date has been exceptional. We are very proud to extend our support of Will Rodgers and Ken Schrader Racing. The response from our customers has been tremendous and that shows the power of being aligned with the right team combination in motorsports,” said Dave Klinger, president of Drydene Performance Products. “Seeing Ken Schrader in our Drydene red firesuit will be a thrill for our customers and employees.”

Drydene has sponsored Will Rodgers, a two-time NASCAR K & N Pro Series winner and NASCAR Next driver, in three races this season: Daytona, Charlotte and Pocono. Rodgers’ best finish to date in the ARCA Racing Series is eighth at Charlotte. Rodgers will also race at the July 27 Pocono race.

“I am overwhelmed with Drydene’s support, enthusiasm and faith in my abilities on and off the racetrack. I am honored to be a brand ambassador and carry the Drydene colors for their sales reps and customers in the ARCA Series,” said Rodgers prior to departing for the Irish Hills.

In Schrader’s last ARCA appearance at Gateway, his car broke while leading the race and it’s redemption time. “With Gateway in my backyard, and with so many of my family and friends who will be there, I am looking forward to getting back into an ARCA race. It will be fun, and I want a great finish for Drydene. I do want to give a shout out to Drydene Performance Products and thank them for giving an old guy like me a chance! Seriously, support from companies like Drydene is essential for racers like Will to build a strong foundation for a career in motorsports,” said Schrader, the defending ARCA Racing Series Championship team owner.
