Ken Schrader to Race at Plymouth Speedway on May 10
By: Anita Soltis
(Plymouth, IN) One regular season night of racing at Plymouth Speedway just got a little more interesting. NASCAR driver Ken Schrader will be firing up his UMP Modified machine and racing it on the dirt oval at Plymouth Speedway on May 10.
Schrader has had an extensive racing career in the highest level of NASCAR racing and continues to race his UMP Modified all over the country.
Schrader said he’s looking forward to going back to the track and getting to race.
“We went there last year and broke the rear end in practice and I wasn’t able to race that night,” explained Schrader. “I wanted to come back and I talked with everyone there and found that May 10 would be the best night for me to race. We’ll be there with our UMP Modified and I’ll see you there!”
Schrader joined Justin Allgaier, Kenny Wallace, David Reutimann and David Stremme in a Mod Squad event last year at Plymouth Speedway. Last season's Modified division champion Frank Marshall ended up with the win.
Can Schrader beat the regular drivers at Plymouth Speedway? Many of the regular season drivers in the UMP Modified Division are returning this year and they're hungry for that championship and the chance to go door-to-door with a NASCAR legend on May 10.
The Super Street, Thunder Stocks and 600 Non-Wing Sprint car races will also be featured that evening.
