"M&M's"® Racing Team DOVER DOWNS INT'L RACEWAY Notes And Quotes

"M&M's"® Chocolate Candies Fascinating Fact... * Blue is a little cocky and a lot cool within the cast of "M&M's"® Characters. He is up on all the latest trends and is physically and socially adept. He is smooth and confident, and is an observer and commentator.

"M&M's"® Racing Team Dover Downs International Raceway Highlights... * Ken Schrader will drive the No. 36 "M&M's"® Pontiac in 2000, MB2 Motorsports announced on September 16. Schrader is a 17-year veteran of the Winston Cup Series with 449 starts including four wins, 64 top fives and 167 top-10 finishes.

"I'm sure Dorothy and Sheldon, my son and daughter, will be thrilled that I'll have "M&M's"® as a sponsor next year," Schrader said. "What could be better than daddy having a sponsor that gives them free "M&M's"®."

* The "M&M's"® Racing Team has five starts at Dover Downs with their best finish coming in the fall of 1998. The "M&M's"® Pontiac finished eighth in the September 1998 race at Dover, their second top 10 at the track that year. The team also got a top 10 in May of 1998, qualifying eighth and finishing ninth.

* "M&M's"® driver Jerry Nadeau has two previous starts at Dover Downs International. Nadeau got his best start to date at the track in the spring of this year when he lined up 13th on the starting grid.

* A severe case of food poisoning in May of 1998 kept Nadeau out of the race car and ultimately out of the field in his debut at the Monster Mile. Nadeau had a substitute driver attempt to qualify his car, but the times were not quick enough to make the field.

Jerry Nadeau's thoughts on racing at Dover Downs International Raceway... "Dover is a tough track. As the race progresses, it becomes a two- or three-lane track. But the one thing about a concrete track like that is that if your car isn't handling well, it's going to show up even worse. Dover is really, really quick for a one-mile track."
