CONCORD, N.C. (June 28, 2018) – Will Rodgers is headed to the 1.5-mile Chicagoland Speedway after back-to-back wins in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series in just the past two weeks.
Rodgers, born in Maui, Hawaii in 1994, will compete in this Thursday’s ARCA Racing Series Presented by Menards Scott 150 at Chicagoland Speedway; his first visit to the tri-oval located near Chicago. Rodgers is a member of the NASCAR Next program and is looking to see results on oval tracks to best his sixth-place finish earlier in the month at Michigan International Speedway.
“I’m super pumped coming to Chicagoland Speedway this weekend after a really successful run at Michigan in the No. 52. As a team, we learned a ton there that should help with every on-track experience this weekend.
I’m very thankful to have Drydene Performance Products behind me once again for another ARCA Racing Series event, their support means so much to me. Also, having Ken (Schrader) at the track with us this week is something I feel will really benefit our competitive edge. He’s a man of few words, but those few words are usually very helpful and insightful,” said Rodgers.
Chicagoland Speedway has been hosting 17 years of racing including NASCAR, IndyCar and ARCA Racing Series. In last year’s ARCA racing Series event, there were four cautions and nine lead changes, and the No. 52 team finished second with driver Austin Theriault.
