Schrader's Thoughts On New Hampshire...

"Going to New Hampshire this year could be like going to an entirely different race track. They've widened the racing groove, which is going to make it easier to get around and easier to pass. I think the fans are going to see a completely different race. New Hampshire has been a good track to me. The "M&M's"® Racing Team has qualified well, but we've had a hard time putting together the full package there the past couple of visits. Hopefully, we can change that and come home with a top-10 finish."

"M&M's"® Racing Highlights at New Hampshire...

* With 23 poles to his credit, Schrader has long been considered a qualifying threat. His ability to turn quick laps is no more apparent than at New Hampshire's one-mile flat track. In 14 starts at New Hampshire International Speedway, Schrader has collected two poles (both in 1997). The Missouri native has also started outside of the top-10 only twice at the track.

* Never one to just sit back and watch a race, Schrader will once again attempt to pull double duty at "The Magic Mile" this weekend. Schrader plans to run his Schrader Racing entry in the Craftsman Truck Race at New Hampshire on Saturday afternoon. It is one of seven truck races that Schrader plans to run this season.

* It's not home, but it sure does come close for "M&M's"® Racing Team jack man Tim Goad. Goad is no stranger to the New England area. Before joining the ranks of NASCAR three years ago, Goad played in the NFL for 10 years. Goad spent seven of those years as a defensive lineman for the New England Patriots.

* The list of drivers continues to change and grow for the"M&M's" Night Of Stars charity race on July 31st at I-55 Raceway in Pevely, Mo. Schrader will be joined at the autograph signing and charity race by the likes of Kyle Petty, Johnny Benson, Bill Elliott, Mike Wallace and more.
