"M&M's"® Chocolate Candies Fascinating Fact... * Green is the only female member in the cast of "M&M's"® Characters. Decked out in her white go-go boots, Green is feminine but rest assured she can keep up with the boys if she needs to. She is quick witted and intelligent and not afraid to 'call it like she sees it.' "M&M's"® Racing Team Richmond International Raceway Highlights... * The "M&M's"® Racing Team had a long night at Richmond International Raceway in the spring, but they are looking for positive things for this weekend's activities. In the spring race the "M&M's"® Racing team worked through two accidents and brake problems to the complete their fifth start together at Richmond International Raceway. * Jerry Nadeau will once again be in the No. 36 "M&M's"® Pontiac this weekend at Richmond International Raceway. This will mark Nadeau's third start with the team. So far with Nadeau behind the wheel, the "M&M's"® Racing Team has twice qualified in the top 10. * Nadeau suffered a hard hit last weekend at Darlington Raceway, but is ready to get back behind the wheel this weekend. "I basically just got my bell rung," said Nadeau, who turns 29 this Thursday. "It was more frustrating than painful because I really wanted to have a good run for the guys at MB2 Motorsports. I've really enjoyed working with them for the past couple of weeks. Even though we've had a couple of tough races, I've had a lot of fun." * Regular "M&M's"® Racing Team driver Ernie Irvan announced his retirement from Winston Cup racing last Friday. Irvan made the decision following an accident at Michigan Speedway on August 20, 1999. Although he is no longer driving the "M&M's"® Pontiac, Irvan will continue to be involved with the "M&M's"® Racing Team and special promotions involving the "M&M's"® Chocolate Candies brand.

Jerry Nadeau's thoughts on racing at Richmond International Raceway... "Richmond is a smooth race track, so you have to be a smooth driver," Nadeau said. "You can't overcharge the car into the turns. Like a lot of other tracks, you have to stay out of trouble and save your equipment until the end of the race. I really like racing under the lights. I'm glad NASCAR made both races at Richmond night events. The drivers like it, the fans like it...it's just like good old Saturday night short track racing."
