Will Rodgers Prepped for Daytona ARCA Series Debut
CONCORD, N.C. (February 7, 2018) – Will Rodgers, a two-time NASCAR K & N Pro Series winner is prepped and ready to drive for Ken Schrader Racing (KSR) in the ARCA (Automobile Racing Club of America) Racing Series opening event this Saturday, February 10 in the Lucas Oil 200 at Daytona International Speedway, Daytona Beach, Florida. Ken Schrader Racing is the defending ARCA Racing Series Championship team and will field two race cars in 2018.
Rodgers, born in Maui, Hawaii in 1994, tested last month at Daytona International Speedway in a No. 52 KSR Ford, and learned about the 2.5-mile historic superspeedway from team owner Kenny Schrader, crew chief Donnie Richeson and defending Champion Austin Theriault.
“Saturday night will be the first time that I race on an oval larger than a mile. This is a big step for my racing development. Superspeedway races are unpredictable, but I am confident in the No. 52 Ford and team behind me. KSR has had great success at Daytona and I believe that will shorten the learning curve. Ultimately, I am very excited to represent Drydene and put on the best performance possible for them,” said Rodgers.
“Being a part of a historic venue like Daytona, to launch our brand on a national scale with live television and fanatic, loyal fans is awesome,” said Dave Klinger, president of Drydene Performance Products. “I think Drydene, Will Rodgers and KSR will be a winning formula. We are hoping to see our team in victory lane.”
