ORLANDO, Fla. — Short-track racer Andy Jankowiak has signed OneRail, a leading final mile delivery solution for retailers and product manufacturers, to compete in the ARCA Menards Lucas Oil 200 at Daytona Int’l Speedway Saturday.
Jankowiak purchased a complete car from NASCAR legend Ken Schrader in April 2020 to compete in this season’s opener and select events on ARCA Menards Series calendar. He completed a test in mid-January ARCA test at Daytona, placing 18th on the speed chart on 49 entries.
“When I called Mr. Schrader, I thought it would be a long shot to acquire the car, but he worked with me to put this deal together; I can’t thank him enough,” said Jankowiak. “The car was good, and it was my first time on a superspeedway, so I was in learning mode. We’ve worked tirelessly since the test to make improvements that will help the car in the draft – I can’t thank Andy Seuss enough for the use of his shop and for his time and knowledge.”
The 32-year-old driver from New York is second generation racer – following in the footsteps of his father Tony Jankowiak, a former regular in the NASCAR Modified racing circuit and a World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing champion at the New Smyrna Speedway. The younger Jankowiak has found success in many forms of motorsports including the Race of Champions Modified Tour and the prestigious Indoor Auto Racing Championship Series.
