Ken Schrader will be making his fourth NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series start at The Milwaukee Mile when he pilots the No. 18 Fastenal Dodge on Friday night.

The Toyota Tundra Milwaukee 200 will mark Schrader's 78th NCTS start. In his previous 77 races Schrader has an average starting position of 15th and finishing of 17h.

Schrader will pilot "Slim" this weekend at Milwaukee. Schrader drove this particular chassis to a third place finish at Mansfield and a 12th place finish at Martinsville earlier in the season.

A Look Back: Since 2004 at least one Bobby Hamilton Racing (BHR) entry has finished in the top 10 at The Milwaukee Mile event.

Sweet Victory: Crew Chief Jeff White scored his first NASCAR Busch Series victory at The Milwaukee Mile in 1999. White was the team engineer for Brewco Motorsports and driver Casey Atwood at the time. It was his first NASCAR series victory.

Always Racing: Schrader continues to race at dirt tracks across the United States during the week. He will race at Park Jefferson Speedway in Jefferson, South Dakota and Huset's Speedway in Sioux Falls, South Dakota before making his way to Wisconsin for the NCTS event.J

One More Week: Schrader will drive the No. 18 Fastenal Dodge next week at Memphis Motorsports Park.

Schrader on the Milwaukee Mile: "I have raced at Milwaukee several times and I am really looking forward to this weekend's event. I have had some good runs there in the past and so has BHR. Milwaukee is the flattest track we race on in the truck series. You really have to manage your tires well. I think the team that can save a set of tires for the end will have a good chance of pulling into victory lane."
