Federated Auto Parts to Sponsor "Buckeye Bash" at Columbus

NASCAR Stars Ken Schrader and Kenny Wallace to Battle in 150 Lap Sunoco Super Series Event

(Salem-IN) -- Officials from the CRA/Sunoco Super Series and Federated Auto Parts announced today that national auto parts distributor would serve as the title sponsor for the "Federated Auto Parts Buckeye Bash" at Columbus Motor Speedway in Ohio on Sunday, September 7th.

Headlining the event will be the Sunoco Super Series Late Models in the Federated Auto Parts 150. NASCAR stars Ken Schrader and Kenny Wallace will be on hand to battle the top short track stars in the exciting 150 lap tilt. Also, on the card will be the USA Modified series, and the $1000 to win Ohio Street Stock Championship.

"This should be one exciting event," CRA/Sunoco Super Series founder R. J. Scott noted. "We had a great race in our initial visit to Columbus last year, and with Ken Schrader and Kenny Wallace committed, it will be even better. Plus, bringing on a great company like Federated Auto Parts, will take the "Buckeye Bash" to the next level right out of the box."

"We're really excited to be on board for this event," said John Pisani, Director of Operations for the area distributor for Federated Auto Parts. "We've just begun our efforts in the Columbus market this year and already have some great professional installers on board. Plus, Federated has a great relationship with Ken Schrader as the sponsor on many of his short track cars and his NASCAR Craftsman Truck. We are really looking forward to putting some of our customers in one location with our driver. We can easily see how the Federated Auto Parts Buckeye Bash will become a real racing jewel to the state of Ohio."

Racing for the Sunday September 7th Federated Auto Parts Buckeye Bash is slated to start at 2 pm. Tickets for the event will go on sale Saturday, August 16th. Seating is limited, so everyone is encouraged to get their tickets early.
