Ken Schrader Said... "I'm really proud of the "M&M's" Racing Team. The "M&M's" Team went to Daytona with a new driver and a new crew chief and we all had a successful speedweeks. We put in a solid performance all week, from the Shootout to the Daytona 500. We were happy to leave Daytona with a top-10 finish. The past few weeks is proof of how hard this team has worked over the winter.
"Rockingham is a 180 degree difference from Daytona, but it is a fun little race track that I always enjoy. It has got two solid grooves, so you can run either high or low depending on how your car is set up. I ran pretty decent there last spring and finished 11th, but I want to improve on that this weekend. The "M&M's" Team already has a solid short track program and Sammy and I plan to add to that."
