October 4, 2017 - KSR Crew Chief Richeston Reflects on Dream Season
1 TOLEDO, Ohio (Oct. 4, 2017) -- Ken Schrader Racing Team Manager and Crew Chief Donnie Richeson has worked with some of the best in the business. From Darrell Waltrip to Kenny Bernstein, from Alan Kulwicki to Jeff Burton, from the Bodine brothers to Ken Schrader Racing (KSR), Richeson has been honing his craft for decades. Yet there was always something missing, until 2017 came into full view.

"I've never won a championship in any kind of racing," said Richeson.

That's about to change when the No. 52 KSR car rolls off for practice at Kansas Speedway Oct. 20. It'll be at that moment when driver Austin Theriault will officially clinch the 2017 ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards national championship, and the second car owner title for KSR.

"There's been a lot of firsts this year," Richeson said. "I had never been to Daytona victory lane either. I've never had this many wins in a season. Never won a championship or received any of the awards that come along with that type of season. I really haven't reflected on it yet…we still have a race to go. Even when we've won, we really haven't spent too much time on it. A little celebration in victory lane…we push it back in the trailer and start talking about next week." >>READ MORE
