WALWORTH, Wis. – NASCAR driver Ken Schrader will sign autographs on Saturday, Jan. 28, 2012 from 2-3 p.m. during the annual Mecum Kissimmee Auction at Osceola Heritage Park in Kissimmee, Fla.
More than 2,000 collector cars will cross the block at Mecum’s six-day Kissimmee auction Jan. 24-29, including the 2011 Federated Auto Parts 300 Pace Car – a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS (Lot S173). Schrader, who returns to the NASCAR Sprint Series in 2012 driving the #32 Federated Auto Parts Ford, will pilot this official pace car across the auction block on national television, where Mecum will offer it to bidders on Jan. 28 around 5 p.m.
Patterned after the legendary Z11 Indy 500 Pace Car and built by the “Two Guys Garage” TV crew, the 2010 Camaro RS/SS features a Whipple supercharger, NHRA-approved roll bar, controls for the Pace Car strobe lighting system and autographed dash.
