Matt Tifft Joins Ken Schrader Racing For 2014

Matt Tifft confirmed today that he will join Ken Schrader Racing (KSR) for 2014 in a limited schedule in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards and the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East (NKNPSE) tours.

Tifft, a 17-year-old high school senior, has been racing since 2007, when he started in a go kart at Barberton Speedway in Norton, Ohio. Since then, Tifft has moved up, expanding his driving resume to include late models and stock cars in the NASCAR K&N East division and ARCA Series. In 2012, he won Rookie of the Year honors in the ARCA Midwest Tour. This year, Tifft ran the full NASCAR K&N East campaign and two ARCA races. His best finish of the season came at Toledo Speedway (ARCA) on May 19, where he finished fifth.

The rising phenom will compete in 10 ARCA races, with two of those events as a teammate to car owner Ken Schrader. A defined schedule is forthcoming.

“I am very excited to make the move to Ken Schrader Racing and extremely honored to represent Federated Auto Parts,” said Tifft. “The team is a proven winner and consistent contender and I look forward to adding to the success of this already well-established organization.

“It is also very cool for me to be driving for Ken Schrader. I’ve had one of his die-cast cars since I was about five years old. I know I will learn a lot from him on and off the track.”

In addition to Federated Auto Parts, the Buckeye native also welcomes IMC Marks, DOC 360, Malco Automotive and JLP CPA’s as supporting marketing partners for 2014. Federated Auto Parts will begin its 15th consecutive year with KSR.

“Everyone at Federated is excited about continuing our long relationship with Ken Schrader and our full-season sponsorship of the Ken Schrader Racing ARCA team in 2014,” said J.R. Bishop, director of motorsports and event marketing for Federated. “We are really looking forward to having Matt Tifft, one of the future stars of racing, drive the Federated ARCA car. We are putting together a great hospitality program surrounding the ARCA schedule that we know our members and their customers will really enjoy, so we can’t wait to get racing in 2014.”

Schrader commented on the announcement by saying, “We are proud to be running a full ARCA schedule next season. With Matt assisting with the team’s driving duties, I will be able to run our No. 9 Federated Auto Parts dirt modified, and still compete in the ARCA Series,” Schrader added. “Donnie Richeson will again head up our North Carolina-based team and be calling the shots from the pit box. He has worked with many young drivers and I believe he and Matt will be a great combination.”

In addition to ARCA, Tifft will also compete in four soon-to-be determined NASCAR K&N East races in a KSR, Inc.-prepared car.
