Ken Schrader Racing returns to Heartland Park Topeka for the eighth year, this year with the No. 52 Purolator PureONE truck. Ken Schrader Racing has been a part of stock car racing at Heartland Park Topeka since their very first stock car race. Schrader drove his ARCA car to victory lane in 1991, being the first stock car racer in victory lane at Heartland Park Topeka. Since that time Ken Schrader Racing has fielded racing machines varying from ARCA cars to NASCAR Craftsman Trucks at Heartland Park Topeka. 1998 marks the second time that the Purolator PureONE race team with driver Mike Wallace has competed at Heartland Park Topeka.

"Heartland Park Topeka is one of my favorite road course tracks," said Wallace. "It is a very fast and maneuverable road course. To race there, a truck needs a tremendous amount of motor because the start of the track is a drag strip."

The Purolator PureONE Chevrolet race team has built a brand new truck to race at Heartland Park Topeka. They have been working on this truck for a while and are excited to race it. Of course they named her Dorothy after the main character in The Wizard of Oz because she was built especially for Heartland Park Topeka in Topeka, Kan.

Mike Wallace will attend the Craftsman Sears store autograph session on Friday, August 21, 6:30-8 p.m., at the Westridge Mall in Topeka. Wallace will also sign autographs in the Federated Auto Parts hospitality tent on Sunday, August 23, 11 a.m.
