Las Vegas Notes And Quotes

Schrader’s Thoughts On The Track…
“The “M&M’s”® Racing Team tested at Vegas a few weeks ago, and I think that we learned a lot that is going to help us this weekend. It’s been a weak place for us in the past, and that’s one of the reasons we decided to test there,” Schrader said. “We had one of our better tests, and we’re pretty confident heading back there. This is a big weekend for the team – the “M&M’s”® folks have been in town for the entire week for a conference and we have a big announcement on Saturday. We’re looking for a strong run for this “M&M’s”® team.”

“M&M’s”® Racing At Las Vegas Motor Speedway…
  • Throughout the 2001 season, “M&M’s”® Chocolate Candies searched race tracks across the country for THE MOST COLORFUL FAN™ OF NASCAR®. More than half a million people voted on an interactive web site for nine finalists who have traveled to Las Vegas for the grand finale this weekend. On Sunday morning, “M&M’s”® driver Ken Schrader along with representatives from NASCAR, “M&M’s”®/MARS and the motorsports media will choose THE MOST COLORFUL FAN™. The winner will be introduced at driver introductions with Schrader prior to the race.

  • Schrader will keep the track hot in Vegas this weekend as he will attempt to pull off double duty. He will attempt to make the Busch Series race on Saturday with his Schrader Racing entry, and he will slide behind the wheel of the No. 36 “M&M’s”® car for Sunday’s Winston Cup race.

  • “M&M’s”® Chocolate Candies and driver Ken Schrader will hold a press conference in the media center on Saturday at 9 a.m. regarding a special “global” promotion during the 2002 season. Denise Quinones, Miss Universe 2001, will join Schrader at the press conference.

  • Ken Schrader will sign autographs from 6-8 p.m. on Friday night on the fourth floor of Las Vegas’ most colorful store, “M&M’s”® World.
