Federated ‘Dream’ Winners Have ‘Dream Weekend’

Thunder, lightning and some heavy rain could not keep the winners of the Federated “Dream Weekend” from having a great time. Five Federated service provider customers watched some major league baseball and dirt track racing, and then they got behind the wheel of some dirt track cars and learned how to race from NASCAR and dirt track legend Kenny Schrader. Not a bad way to spend a weekend in St. Louis.

Thunder, lightning and some heavy rain could not keep the winners of the Federated “Dream Weekend” from having a great time. Five Federated service provider customers watched some major league baseball and dirt track racing, and then they got behind the wheel of some dirt track cars and learned how to race from NASCAR and dirt track legend Kenny Schrader. Not a bad way to spend a weekend in St. Louis.

“Our five winners had an incredible weekend that I know they will always remember,” said Phil Moore, senior vice president for Federated. “The ‘Dream Weekend’ promotion was a fun and action-packed 48 hours.  Although the Federated Ironman 55 race was eventually postponed because of rain, everyone had a great time and we got to see a lot of racing action before the downpour.”

• Brad Heimbach — Brad’s Motor Market Place, Lafayette, Ind.

• Rodney Gisler — Performance Plus, Three Rivers, Texas

•Troy Stariha — Kalama Auto Supply & Repair, Kalama, Wash.

On Saturday, Aug. 4, the dream weekend continued with a tour of the Anheuser-Busch Brewery and a night of dirt track racing at the Federated Auto Parts I-55 Raceway in Pevely, Mo.  The main event, the Federated Auto Parts World of Outlaws “Ironman 55” was postponed because of a severe storm.  However, the winners still saw a lot of great racing in the qualifying heats from the comfort of track owner Schrader’s personal suite. The “Ironman 55” has been rescheduled for Oct. 13 at the Federated Auto Parts I-55 Raceway.

The dream weekend concluded back at the raceway on Sunday, Aug. 5 with a dirt track driving experience taught by instructor Schrader. The winners got behind the wheel of one of Schrader’s dirt cars and learned the ropes from the dirt track master.
