Campbell drove the #52 Federated Auto Parts Chevrolet to a third-place finish in the Lucas Oil 200 presented by MAVTV American Real ARCA race at Daytona International Speedway on February 15.
Campbell, president of Martinsville Speedway, had his best-ever ARCA finish. He is making two starts this season for Ken Schrader Racing, Inc. A long-time racer and instrument rated multi-engine pilot, Campbell had no problem being patient as the 80-lap race played out on the famed 2.5-mile track.
“Our third place finish at Daytona in the Federated Auto Parts Chevrolet was a great way to start the season,” said Campbell. “All of the guys at Ken Schrader Racing did a heck of a job giving me a great race car and Kenny gave me a great opportunity to drive it. We’ve got a good team and an incredible leader in Donnie Richeson. That guy is a wealth of knowledge on these cars.
Can’t wait to go to Talladega!”

Tifft finished in 12th a high school senior, will be driving in select K & N races this season. His next K & N race will at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway next month.
Following the race, Tifft said, “It was a tough day, but the team worked really hard for a decent finish. It was great getting to work with the KSR team and Federated Auto Parts for the first time at New Smyrna. It was a great experience and I know we will be a team to deal with this year.”
“What a terrific start to the season for our team,” JR Bishop, Marketing Director for Federated Auto Parts said. “The variety of series and tracks will make for an exciting year — we’re looking forward to seeing what the Federated Auto Parts cars and drivers can do this season.
