Schrader's Thoughts On The Coca-Cola 600...

"The "M&M's"® car was great last year at Charlotte, and there's no doubt in my mind that we should have had a top 10 when we left there last year, but an extra pit stop under green ended our good run.

"I'm really excited to go back to Lowe's Motor Speedway for the 600. The PEDIGREE® car that we used during the Winston Open is the same car we're going to use this weekend. Last Friday was the first time that car had seen any track time. Newt and the guys really did a great job setting up the car for the race, and it was moving through the field. If our performance in the Open is any indication of how we'll run this weekend, I'm hoping to leave Charlotte with nothing less than a top 10."

"M&M's"® Racing At Lowe's Motor Speedway ...

* "M&M's"® and driver Kenny Schrader will hold a press conference on Thursday, May 23rd at 2 p.m. in the media center at Lowe's Motor Speedway to announce a special charity event. Driver Kyle Petty will join Schrader for the press conference.

* The "M&M's"®/PEDIGREE® Racing Team was quite pleased with the No. 36 car's solid performance in the Winston Open and No Bull Sprint. After a strong showing in the 46 lap shoot-out last weekend, the No. 36 will be put to the test at the season's longest and most grueling race on Sunday. The car is one of seven new cars in the MB2 Motorsports stables this season, and had not turned a lap on a race track prior to last weekend.

* There's only one week left, so don't forget to cast your vote for your favorite color - pink, purple or aqua - on www.mms.com. The winning color will be added to the famous "M&M's"® mix, and it will also be the color car Schrader will drive at the Bristol night race in August. The last day to cast your vote in THE GLOBAL COLOR VOTE(tm) will be May 31st. The winning color will be announced on June 19th.
