Retired racecar driver Scott Hansen is having fun these days, and a lot of that fun is still coming at the racetrack.

Hansen retired from competitive racing in 2001, then from running his own trucking company business in 2019, but needed something to fill the void once he quit working.

“Retirement is great, but I needed something to do,” quipped Hansen. “Fortunately, I’ve been able to hook up with Kenny Schrader and help him with his Federated track days activities.”

The track days are basically corporate ride-and-drives for Federated Car Care customers all over the US and Canada. Hansen helps out by driving one of the haulers that carry the ride along cars, as well as helping out with at-track logistics and customer service.

“It’s a pretty busy schedule, but I enjoy it,” Hansen continued. “It gives me something to do.”

In addition, Hansen has been a special guest at two ASA STARS National Tour events – the Joe Shear Classic at Madison International Speedway in early May and again at the Milwaukee Mile on Father’s Day.

“Being a part of some of the new ASA races has been really fun,“ the retired racer admitted.“ I’m looking forward to big ASA Reunion in Anderson in July.”

Hansen never won an ASA championship but was clearly one of the best and most successful drivers in series history. He’ll be reacquainted with some of the drivers he competed against when he started pavement racing nearly 40 years ago, and some of the toughest competitors he faced during his time in ASA.

After cutting his teeth on the dirt short tracks in Central Wisconsin in the 1970’s, Hansen transitioned to pavement racing in the Badger State in the mid 1980’s, racing against the likes of future NASCAR stars Mark Martin and 1992 Cup Champion Alan Kulwicki at Wisconsin International Raceway. Along the way, he would race against Wisconsin legend Dick Trickle, and a gaggle of Midwest short track standouts including Mike Miller; Dave Watson and Steve Holzhausen. Little did he know that he’d race against these drivers again in ASA.

He also began running the traveling ARTGO Challenge Series in the mid-‘80’s and won the ARTGO Rookie of the Year award in 1984. In addition, Hansen would win five straight track Championships at WIR from 1985 – 1989.

From there, Hansen packed his bags and moved from Green Bay to Milwaukee where he began driving full time on the ASA circuit for Baker Motorsports, where he won the ASA Rookie of the Year award. Hansen moved on from the Baker team to Gerry Gunderman’s powerhouse ASA operation and had a very successful run from 1996 to 1998.

Hansen befriended Schrader along the way, and in 1999 Hansen drove for Schrader in ASA and the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series.

Hansen’s ASA stats are extraordinary. He would go on to post 26 wins during his career, ranking him fifth All-Time. In addition, he sits in the top ten in almost every major statistical category in ASA History, including:

  • Career Pole Awards – 17 (8th All-Time)
  • Single Season Wins – 7 (1998; tied for 4th All-Time)
  • Career Laps Lead – 6,016 (6th All-time)
  • Consecutive Victories – 3 (1998, tied for 3rd All-Time)

In addition, Hansen is a three-time winner of the Redbud 400 (1991, 1993, 1998)

“I’m excited to see some of the guys I haven’t seen since I quit racing,” Hansen concluded. “ASA was a great series, and it was the people involved that made it great.”

On-track activities for the 57th Annual Greg Hubler Automotive Group Redbud 400 will kick off on Friday, July 14th with inspection and practice for the ASA STARS National Tour. Go Fas Pole Qualifying is scheduled for Saturday afternoon, July 15th, with the Redbud 400 set to go green at 7:30PM Eastern Time.

The Redbud 400 will be co-sanctioned with the ASA CRA Super Series, which will be the third race of the CRA season. Gio Ruggiero won the opener at Salem Speedway, while race two will be contested on Sunday, July 2 at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway.

The ASA STARS National Tour opened the ten race, six-state schedule at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, FL on March 11. Ty Majeski is the most recent winner, claiming the victory in the Father’s Day 100 at the Milwaukee Mile.

ASA STARS National Tour
The ASA STARS National Tour debuted in March of 2023 for Super Late Model racing in America. Announced last October, many of the best drivers in America will compete in the ten-race national tour with a minimum $100,000 point fund. The championship team will be guaranteed $25,000.

The ASA STARS National Tour is made up of three races from each of the regional pavement Super Late Model Series under the Track Enterprises banner; the ASA CRA Super Series, the ASA Midwest Tour and the ASA Southern Super Series.

The Team Construction Winner’s Circle program has been announced as a part of the ASA STARS National Tour for licensed drivers/teams with perfect attendance. The program provides additional financial incentives to those teams who support the Series, thanks to Team Construction.

Track Enterprises, a Racing Promotions Company based in Illinois, will operate the ASA STARS National Tour. It announced the acquisition of the CRA sanctioning body in January and followed that up with the purchase of the Midwest Tour in July. In October, Track Enterprises President, Bob Sargent announced a partnership with the Southern Super Series which set the table for the formation of the ASA STARS National Tour.
