"M&M's"® Racing Team New Hampshire International Raceway Highlights... * Jerry Nadeau will drive the "M&M's"® Pontiac this weekend at New Hampshire International Speedway. In Nadeau's three years of Winston Cup competition, he has four starts at New Hampshire, one of the tracks where he has the highest number of starts (Nadeau has five starts at Pocono, Michigan and Daytona).

* Nadeau also captured his first top-10 qualifying effort at the New England track, starting ninth at NHIS in 1997 in only his fourth career start.

* Nadeau started 15th in the spring event at New Hampshire, but his qualifying lap wasn't without drama for the 29-year-old New Englander. While making his qualifying run on the 1.058-mile oval, Nadeau brushed the wall with a car that was "wicked loose," but still held on to start 15th.

* New Hampshire International Raceway is the closest track on the Winston Cup circuit to Nadeau's hometown of Danbury, Conn., just a few hours up the road. Nadeau and his father have quite a history in the northeast, racing modifieds at tracks all over the area.

* The Skip Barber Pro Series provided Nadeau with a training ground for his Winston Cup career, as well as a rich history at New Hampshire International Speedway. Nadeau has three wins at the track in a Barber Dodge car, including a win from the pole position in 1995.
