October 23, 2017 - Theriault and KSR Share Thoughts on ARCA Championship
1KANSAS CITY, Kan. (Oct. 22, 2017) -- Just before the start of the Kansas 150 Friday at Kansas Speedway, 2017 ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards national champions, driver Austin Theriault and car owner Ken Schrader, shared their thoughts on their success with the media during a press conference in the media center.

It was a 'dream-season' for both…the Concord, North Carolina-based Ken Schrader Racing (KSR) team cleaned up with 7 wins on the season, the General Tire Superspeedway title, the Sioux Chief Short Track Challenge championship and more. It was Schrader's second ARCA car owner championship while it was Theriault's first. Crew Chief Donnie Richeson also earned the Cometic Crew Chief of the Year honors.

While Schrader had "been there, done that," there were a lot of firsts for Theriault.

"I had some of the most fun at Springfield and DuQuoin that I ever had in a racecar," said Theriault, who finished second in his first dirt track start at Springfield and won next time out at DuQuoin. "It goes back to the basics of racing…you just have to make sure you get through the corner without wrecking. I asked a lot of questions about racing on the dirt; but at the end of the day it goes back to the basics. To get a pole and win at the dirt tracks was a high point. Even the mile-and-a-halves…they gave us the most trouble…but we still got a win at Kentucky.>>READ MORE
