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.

January 15, 2018 - Will Rodgers Strong in Daytona Test
1 CONCORD, N.C. (Jan. 15, 2018) – Will Rodgers, a two-time NASCAR K&N Pro Series winner, will drive for Ken Schrader Racing (KSR) in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards in select races in 2018, starting with the Feb. 10 Lucas Oil 200 Driven by General Tire at Daytona Int'l Speedway. KSR, the defending national championship team, has plans to field two cars this year.

Rodgers, in the No. 52 KSR-Drydene Performance Products Ford, was also impressive in open testing over the weekend at Daytona, coming in seventh fastest overall among 62 drivers who posted time and speed. Rodgers, born in Maui, Hawaii in 1994, took his first laps at the historic superspeedway in preparation for the race.

"First of all, it was a unique experience," said Rodgers. "I had never been on a track more than a mile long…that was an oval anyway. It was a little more demanding than I thought. You have to put a little bit more wheel on it to keep it where you want."

Rodgers also said that he was glad he had the chance to test ahead of the race.

"If I hadn't had those test days, it would not have helped my case for the race. I found out the cars move around a bit…you had to pay attention to manipulate the car as to not get in a bad spot. It was very helpful to learn what the car feels like in a large pack. It was kind of like getting thrown to the wolves. I'm sure glad I got the chance to test." >>READ MORE

1CONCORD, N.C. (Jan. 10, 2018) -- Rising young star Brandon Grosso is teaming up with Ken Schrader Racing (KSR) for the full 2018 ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards season, beginning at Daytona Int'l Speedway. Grosso will be driving the No. 52 KSR Ford, the ride recently occupied by 2017 ARCA national champion Austin Theriault.

“Timing is everything,” said Grosso. “To be able to make my first ARCA Racing Series start with Ken Schrader Racing and then be able to race with them full-time is an amazing opportunity. I'm looking forward to working with Donnie (Richeson/crew chief) and the team, and especially excited knowing that Kenny will be available to provide advice and direction is a high confidence booster for me. I realize I have a very big seat to fill and I'm up for the challenge. There are so many people that have helped me get to this point, especially my family, and I do not want to let them or the Ken Schrader Racing team down.”

The "very big seat to fill" is a reference to Theriault, who took the series by storm last year, winning seven races en route to the national championship. >>READ MORE
