Schrader's Thoughts On The MBNA Platinum 400...
"I always like running at Dover. I'm not a big fan of the concrete racing surface, but the track has a pretty wide racing groove. We can run three wide from the bottom of the track all the way up next to the wall, which makes for a pretty good show. It's a pretty demanding race, but the "M&M's"® team is looking forward to going there.

"The "M&M's"® team has had some real good runs this season, but we still haven't had any really good finishes, and we'd really like to change that this weekend. We've had a blown motor, some cut tires and some odd things happen to us. I'd like to see us run like we have been running - we've just got to do it all day long."

"M&M's"® Racing At Dover International Speedway ...

* The "M&M's"® Racing Team hopes to deliver a belated birthday present to driver Ken Schrader this weekend at Dover International Speedway. Schrader blew out 47 candles this past Wednesday, and the No. 36 team would love to score a solid finish to help him celebrate.

* The bright yellow "M&M's"® paint scheme that has become familiar to NASCAR fans over the years returns to the track this weekend after a six-week absence.

* Ken Schrader will attempt to pull off double duty for the fifth time this season at Dover this weekend. In addition to his regular duties as the driver of the No. 36 "M&M's"® Pontiac, Schrader plans to run the No. 52 Schrader Racing entry in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck race on Friday afternoon. Schrader has plans to run double duty five more times this season.

* It's your last chance to vote for pink, purple or aqua as part of "M&M's"® GLOBAL COLOR VOTE(tm). Voting on www.mms.com ends on May 31st, so be sure to cast your vote. Schrader will drive the winning color car and wear a matching uniform at the Bristol night race in August. Voting ends on Friday, and the winning color will be announced on June 19th.
