KEN SCHRADER MARTINSVILLE SPEEDWAY

"“Martinsville is always a challenging race track",” said Schrader." “The biggest concern heading to Martinsville is brakes. When you start a race at Martinsville, you’re already thinking about how important it is to have brakes at lap 500.

"“Martinsville is a typical flat, short track. You run wide open down the front stretch to catch the guy in front of you. Once you catch the guy in front of you, you usually give a slight bump and make the move to pass if the opportunity is there. It is not as big of a deal to give the guy in front of you a little nudge because you’re not running the speeds you run at Daytona and Talladega. The bumping and rubbing that goes on at short tracks is more accepted among the drivers. Most will tell you that bumping and rubbing is just part of short track racing."

"“My biggest concern this weekend will be brakes",” said Sam Johns." “I will constantly be on the radio reminding Kenny to conserve the brakes. We will use bigger brake calipers and thicker brake rotors than we usually run on the No. 33 Skoal Racing Monte Carlo."

Schrader tested at Talladega Superspeedway this week with the No. 33 Skoal Racing Monte Carlo.

Schrader’s No. 52 Oakwood Homes NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series team, driven by Scott Hansen, will be competing in the NAPA 200 on Saturday at Martinsville.
