Federated Auto Parts will serve as primary sponsor for the team on the No. 52 car.
Schrader, who retired from the Sprint Cup Series last month, has scored 16 career ARCA wins in 61 starts including two victories in the 2013 season in his four starts. The veteran racer also has four career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series wins, two NASCAR Nationwide Series wins and one NASCAR Camping World Truck Series win.
“We are proud to be running a full ARCA schedule next season,” Schrader said. “With Matt and Clay 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. 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. Clay brings 25 years of driving experience to the KSR team and will be a major asset at the big tracks.”
Schrader will drive the car in 10 of the 20 ARCA Racing Series events with the 17-year-old Tifft driving eight races. Clay Campbell will drive the two restrcitor-plate races at Daytona and Talladega for the team.
The 53-year-old Campbell is the president of Martinsville Speedway. He has made three career ARCA starts over the past two seasons and is a veteran of NASCAR's Late Model series.
Tifft, is a high school senior from Hinckley, Ohio. In his 2013 racing season he competed in 13 of the 14 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East races for owner Kevin Cywinski. He scored three top 10 finishes and finished 16th in the point standings. He also drove four K&N Pro Series West races for owner Rob Dixon and scored three top 10 finishes including a fifth. Tifft also took part in two ARCA races and finished fifth at Toledo and 15th at Martinsville for Cywinski's team.
Tifft will also drive four K&N Pro Series East races in 2014 in a Ken Schrader Racing car.
