Ken Schrader Joins IMCA Modified Field for Marshalltown Speedway Frostbuster

Apr 2, 2012

Marshalltown, Iowa (April 2, 2012) -- NASCAR icon Ken Schrader joins IMCA Modified stars at Frostbuster special, April 6th at the Marshalltown Speedway.

 

The popular Schrader will also race April 4th at Southern Iowa Speedway in Oskaloosa, April 5th at the Iowa State Fairgrounds Speedway in Des Moines, April 7th at Boone Speedway and April 8th at Benton County Speedway in Vinton.

 

“I’m really looking forward to the Frostbusters. I don’t race a lot of IMCA but I always enjoy it when I do,” said Schrader, following his Sprint Cup start at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. “We were working on our schedule, saw these five races, called Toby (Marshalltown promoter) Kruse and here we are.”

 

While he’s known for his skills of racing anything with wheels, Schrader has a special affection for the open wheeled class.

 

“I like the IMCA Modified. The rules take tires out of the equation and the engines have plenty of power, but they’re affordable,” Schrader continued, “these cars are just fun to drive.”

 

Schrader took the green flag at four IMCA events last season, starting with opening night of the Mid-America Modified Championships at Batesville Motor Speedway.

 

He was third in the Harris Clash at Knoxville Raceway, and then joined the Dakota Track Side Classic Modified Tour at Estevan Motor Speedway and the JR Motorsports Hawkeye Dirt Tour at Hancock County Speedway during a two-week swing to dirt tracks around the Midwest.

 

Schrader owns four IMCA wins in his career, two in a Modified and two in the Deery Brothers Summer Series for Late Models.

 

IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars, IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks and Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods are also on the Marshalltown Speedway Frostbuster program.
