Federated also announced that the Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 will be the site of the inaugural 2012 Federated Auto Parts World of Outlaws “Ironman 55” race in August.

“We are thrilled that the Federated Auto Parts name will now be associated with one of the most popular dirt tracks in the nation,” said J.R. Bishop, director of racing and event marketing for Federated Auto Parts. “At Federated, we have been involved with dirt track racing on all levels for many years so this is a perfect fit for us. We look forward to hosting many of our members and their great customers at the track in the coming year.”

The Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 is co-owned by longtime Federated spokesperson and dirt track legend Ken Schrader. In addition to a full schedule of weekly dirt track races from March through October, the Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 will host several hundred Federated members, customers and manufacturing partners on Aug. 4 for the inaugural Federated Auto Parts World of Outlaws “Ironman 55” race. The speedway will also be the site of the annual Federated “Get Dirty with Kenny” promotion where lucky Federated Car Care Center members will get the chance to race against Schrader.

“The new Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 is an exciting addition to our motorsports program,” said Bishop. “We have many great events and promotions planned that our Federated members will both enjoy and leverage to help grow their individual businesses.”
