NASCAR WINNER KEN SCHRADER TO RACE SCHOOL BUS AT TOLEDO’S MAY 16 SEASON OPENER

NASCAR WINNER KEN SCHRADER TO RACE SCHOOL BUS AT  TOLEDO’S MAY 16 SEASON OPENER

April 29, 2021:  He’s a 4-time NASCAR Cup Series winner.  He’s raced Indy Cars, Stock Cars, Midgets, Sprint Cars, Modifieds, Street Stocks, Late Models and he’s a National Championship Car Owner in the ARCA Menards Series.

And now Ken Schrader will add a School bus race to his resume as he jumps behind the wheel at Toledo Speedway’s 2021 season opening event Sunday afternoon, May 16.

The Central Avenue Truck Parts School Bus Figure 8 race Sunday afternoon, May 16 will feature NASCAR winner Ken Schrader at the wheel of a School Bus!  Schrader had plans to celebrate his 65th birthday by driving a bus last season at Toledo.  With much of the season cancelled due to the virus, Schrader agreed to be at the Glass City track for this fun-filled day of family entertainment.

Schrader is very popular and became a fan favorite at the Glass City oval while racing in the ARCA Menards Series Stock Car events at the track over the past decade.  While “retired” from the NASCAR ranks, Ken has moved his racing operation back to his home state of Missouri.  Much of his racing activities center around dirt Modified racing from coast to coast, but he has been eyeing the School Bus race at Toledo since last season.
