Schrader's Thoughts On Texas
"Right now this "M&M's"® Racing team is really clicking. We're not only racing well we're qualifying decent. We still have some improvements to make, but I think we are on the right track to keep improving each week. Newt and the entire team give me cars on race day that only need slight changes during the race because they are set up right on the money from practice. We are also having really productive practice sessions. Even if we aren't a top-15 car when we unload, by the time our first practice session is done we've got the car how we want it."Schrader's Texas HighlightsOn April 8, 2001 at Martinsville Speedway "M&M's"® Racing Team driver Ken Schrader will become only the 22nd driver in Winston Cup history (1949-present) to make 500 career Winston Cup starts.
