KEN SCHRADER DOVER DOWNS INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY

SCHRADER'S THOUGHTS HEADING INTO THE MBNA PLATINUM 400:

* "Dover Downs is a real high-banked oval that is concrete," said Schrader. "It is one of those tracks where you are running high speeds, so if you come off the turn and you wiggle just a little you're going to have a hard time gathering it back up. It is a track where you have to be patient. We've run well in the past, so I'm looking forward to the race." CREW CHIEF SHOP TALK:

* "I feel good after the Coca-Cola 600 last week at Charlotte," said Sam Johns. "We ran real competitive lap times that were comparable to the leader. I felt like there were times when we could've been a contender, but our track position kept us from getting there. We had some inconsistencies with the tires, so our set-up was off on two of the runs. I really feel like we're making gains.

"As we look ahead to Dover, I am optimistic we'll have another solid run. Kenny likes Dover and he runs strong there. I feel like we're coming off of a solid run at Charlotte and if we keep rolling we should be pretty good this weekend."

* Schrader competed in the late model event at Wisconsin International Raceway in Kaukauna, Wis., on Memorial Day. He finished fourth while his NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series driver, Scott Hansen, won the event. Michael Waltrip and Sterling Marlin also spent their day off competing in the event.
