Schrader’s Thoughts On Darlington Raceway…
“I love going down to Darlington. It’s a tricky little track, but it is a lot of fun to get around. Darlington has been a good track for me and for the “M&M’s”® Racing Team. We were able to get in the front here last fall and lead a few laps, which was a lot of fun. We’re bringing back that same car this weekend, and we hope that we can walk away from here with a top 10.”

“M&M’s”® Racing At Darlington Raceway…
  • Ken Schrader and the “M&M’s”® Racing Team recorded two strong runs at “the track too tough too tame” last year – including a 13th-place finish in the spring and a 10th-place finish in the fall. It was Schrader’s performance in last fall’s Southern 500 that had fans standing on their feet around the track. Near the mid-point of the race, Schrader took the point for several laps before relinquishing the lead and finishing 10th. Schrader will pilot the same No. 36 machine this weekend at Darlington.

  • Schrader will run the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series event on Friday afternoon at Darlington Raceway. It will be the first time that Schrader has piloted the No. 52 Schrader Racing entry in the truck series this season. Schrader plans to run in 11 truck events this season.

  • Don’t forget that you can vote NOW for the new color of “M&M’s”® as part of the GLOBAL COLOR VOTE™.
