TOLEDO, Ohio (May 14, 2018) -- Ken Schrader Racing is here in full force today, testing at Toledo Speedway for this weekend's 77th running of the Menards 200. After a heavy downpour this morning, the weather is expected to clear up by this afternoon. During the rain delay, the team visited the newer ARCA office in Temperance, Michigan. Pictured, left to right, are gasman Jimmy Fallon, shop manager/crew chief Donnie Richeson, car chief Matt Weber, rookie driver Brandon Grosso and team owner Ken Schrader. The team posed inside the Marcum Room where office staffers huddle up for conference calls and meetings. Fallon, a 10-year Navy veteran, will be singing the National Anthem for Sunday's Menards 200. He and his wife Dorie are expecting their 12th grandchild soon. It's a girl, making the count an even six and six.
Venturini Motorsports and Chad Bryant Racing are also here today in anticipation of getting out on the track this afternoon. VMS drivers in the house include Natalie Decker, Christian Eckes and Chandler Smith. Chad Bryant Racing is here with rookie Joe Graf, Jr., runner-up finisher at Talladega. More news from today's test forthcoming.
Ken Schrader Racing will be back in town a day early this week. Schrader is going to unload his Federated Auto Parts 2-seater car and offer up fast rides around the Toledo half-mile Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Our media friends interested in taking a ride with Schrader Friday should reach out to Don Radebaugh, firstname.lastname@example.org.
