INDIANAPOLIS — Short-track and NASCAR racing veteran Ken Schrader shared the stage in the SPEED SPORT Industry Center Friday afternoon at the IMIS trade show with fellow short track racers Brad Doty, Jimmy Horton and Shane Carson.

While all four shared entertaining stories that left a standing-room crowd laughing out loud, Schrader’s typical antics provided more than a few belly laughs with lines that shouldn’t be repeated in most circles.

But Schrader not only talked about the cars he’s wrecked, the races he’s won and the beer he has drank, but discussed his plans for the coming season.

The 57-year-old Schrader, who drove Frank Stoddard’s No. 32 in 13 races in 2012, says he will be back behind the wheel of that NASCAR Sprint Cup Series car in 10 races next season.

“We run 28th or 32nd most of the time, but we still have fun out there racing, well, I guess we have fun out there running around,” Schrader said. “We’re going to run 10 races next year. The only bad thing about that is that it shoots the hell out of 10 weekends that we could be out running the modified somewhere.”

Schrader will also travel the Midwest with his modified as has became his annual trek of summer. But he also has also added a new race to his 2013 calendar.

“We’re putting a truck together to go over and run the race at Eldora,” said Schrader of the July 24 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Ohio’s Eldora Speedway. It will be the first race for the series on a dirt track.

Video highlights of Schrader’s panel discussion will be available at www.nationalspeedsportnews.com in the coming days.
