CareerEdit

Born in Sparta, Wisconsin on May 10, 1979,[1] Schendel began competing in NASCAR-sanctioned competition in 2000, racing locally at the La Crosse Fairgrounds Speedway.[2] After several years competing in the regional Elite Series, he won the 2006 NASCAR AutoZone Elite Division, Midwest Series championship,[3] the final year the tour ran under NASCAR sanctioning.[4]

The championship won Schendel a sport in the AutoZone Elite Division portion of the 2006 Toyota All-Star Showdown at Irwindale Speedway, where he won the all-star event, leading 112 of 130 laps in the event,[5] which was extended in a green-white-checker finish from a scheduled 125 laps.[6]

Following the closure of the NASCAR Midwest Series, Schendel has competed in the ASA Midwest Tour, which replaced it; his best finish in the series standings has been third in 2008.[1] He also competed in selected races in the ARCA Racing Series and NASCAR Busch East Series in 2006 and 2007, as well as in three Craftsman Truck Series races in the mid-2000s.[7] Schendel debuted in NASCAR in 2004 with two Craftsman Truck Series starts.[8] He made his first start at the Milwaukee Mile in his home state track, starting 28th and finishing 22nd.[9] After failing to qualify at Indianapolis Raceway Park, he made his second start at Homestead-Miami Speedway and finished 28th after crashing.[9] Schendel made his first NASCAR Nationwide Series start in a 2006 start at the Memphis. He completed 51 laps before an accident took him out of the race; he finished last.[10]

In addition to competing in the ASA Midwest Tour, Schendel competed on a limited schedule in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, primarily driving the No. 52 Chevrolet for Jimmy Means Racing.[11] He has a best finish of 24th, scored at O'Reilly Raceway Park in August 2011.[12] He was known for blowing a tire right in front of the leaders Kyle Busch and Carl Edwards, whom Busch crashed in a NASCAR Nationwide race at Texas Motor Speedway.
