Unicover Inc. manufactures aluminum, fiberglass and commercial grade pickup truck caps. The company has over 200 dealers in the Midwest and Canada. As one of the largest employers located in Britt, Iowa, Unicover has been in business for more than 40 years. Owned and operated by the Bakken family, Unicover is a member of SEMA and LTAA. The company also sponsors local dirt tracks. Brad Bakken, currently the general manager of Unicover, was sponsored by the company during his 13-year tenure as a modified driver.
Bakken said, “Unicover and its employees are proud of the opportunity to become a part of the #52 Ken Schrader Racing team. This relationship stems from the grass roots of dirt modified racing where I had the pleasure of not only meeting, but also competing against Kenny, allowing him to become familiar with our brand. This sponsorship is a great fit as the success and future of Unicover merges with the success and future of Austin Theriault.”
We’re thrilled to have Unicover with us for the Chicagoland race,” Ken Schrader, team owner said. “Our crew chief Donnie Richeson and the entire team have put Austin in a position to win or finish well every week. Austin has done a tremendous job – he is smart, thinks through every lap and gives us all a thrill at the end of every race! We hope to continue the momentum at Chicago.”
The race is scheduled for Thursday, September 14 and will be shown LIVE on FS1 beginning at 8 p.m. (Eastern). To learn more about Unicover, visit unicovercaps.com; to follow Austin Theriault on twitter go to @austintheriault; for information about Ken Schrader Racing, Inc. go to schraderracing.com,
