KEN SCHRADER & UMP MODIFIEDS JOIN 2016 SCHEDULE

by Tommy Goudge (April 14, 2016) – Ohsweken, Ontario – Ohsweken Speedway officials are pleased to announce the addition of the UMP Modified division for two events on the 2016 schedule, with fan favourite driver Ken Schrader set to compete in one of them.

The UMP Modifieds join the schedule for Sponsor Night presented by Strickland’s GMC on Friday, July 15, and Monster Truck Mayhem Night presented by Tirecraft Ontario on Friday, September 9. Admission for the two events will remain at the regular $14 price, and tickets these and all other 2016 Ohsweken Speedway events are available now! Visit www.OhswekenSpeedway.com or call 519 717-0023 for more information.

The UMP Modified division is a Saturday night fixture at South Buxton Raceway, but rarely ventures east of the Chatham-area facility. Anticipation is high among the drivers and teams, and many will be racing at Ohsweken for the first time. The first and only UMP Modified event at Ohsweken to date was held in August of 2009, while at least 24 UMP Modified teams were planning to compete at Ohsweken last September before wet weather intervened.

Ken Schrader will bring his own UMP Modified to race at Ohsweken in the July 15 event, following a corporate event at the track earlier in the week. His first and only Ohsweken visit to date came in 2009, when he scored an 8th place finish in the World of Outlaws Late Model Series “Six Nations 50”. The 60 year old from Fenton, Missouri is known for the wide variety of racing divisions in which he has competed and seen success. Before making his debut in what is now the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in 1984, Schrader claimed the USAC Silver Crown series championship in 1982, and the USAC National Sprint Car series championship in 1983. He later became the first driver to win in all three of NASCAR’s major series, and started 763 Sprint Cup Series events before “retiring” in 2013. Ken Schrader Racing Inc. now fields entries in the ARCA series, and in various dirt modified events. Schrader himself still competes in more than 70 races each season, mostly in dirt modifieds, and claimed 5 feature wins last year.
