STAUNTON, Virginia – From an appearance at Federated member Foreign Auto and Truck Supply (F.A.T.S) Auto Parts Warehouse to his first time racing in the state of Alaska, NASCAR legend and Federated spokesperson Kenny Schrader made quite an impression during his recent visit to the state of Alaska.
“Kenny Schrader has a goal to race in all 50 states so we were thrilled that Federated member F.A.T.S. Auto Warehouse employees and customers got the chance to see him get one step closer to that goal by racing in the great state of Alaska,” said J.R. Bishop, motorsports and event marketing director for Federated Auto Parts. “As always, Kenny was a huge hit with Federated customers. He also did really well on the track in a car he had never driven before. It was a wonderful experience for all involved and we thank Alaska Raceway Park for their hospitality.”
On Saturday, June 30, Schrader made an appearance at the F.A.T.S Auto Parts Warehouse in Anchorage. Later that day, Schrader headed to Alaska Raceway Park where he signed autographs, took pictures with race fans and attended a hospitality event for customers at the track. Schrader wrapped up the day by finishing third in the main event at the Alaska Raceway Park. After this visit to Alaska, Schrader has now raced in 48 states with Hawaii and Rhode Island remaining.
