TC Daily Pit Stop: Tuesday, August 15th, 2023
There must have been something in the air at Ohsweken Speedway on Monday.
Ken Schrader, making his second start in the NASCAR Pinty’s Series, was able to find victory in the Freshstone Dirt Classic at Ohsweken Speedway, after taking the lead away late from race dominator Treyten Lapcevich.
“I just drove it. These guys and Kyle [Steckly] my crew chief gave me an excellent car. They have their act together,” Schrader said post-race with high praise. “My teammate and I were working good together and then he got into the lapped car I knew I had to go then.”
In scoring the victory in Monday’s event at the 0.375-mile dirt track, Schrader, 68, becomes the first-ever foreign-born driver to capture a victory in the NASCAR Pinty’s Series, surpassing a previous best of third by Noah Gragson and Jason Bowles.
