Schrader Struggles To 28Th

WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. – The misfortune returned Sunday for Ken Schrader and the “M&M’s” Racing Team.

After a solid 14th-place finish in the Brickyard 400 last weekend, Schrader struggled in the Sirius Satellite Radio at The Glen at the Watkins Glen International road course. After a handling problem, a misfired strategy call and failing power steering, Schrader limped home to a 28th-place finish.

The “M&M’s” Pontiac was tight at the beginning of the race, but crew chief Newt Moore made some air-pressure adjustments that made the car handle better.

About two-thirds into the 90-lap race, a caution came out that change the complexion of Schrader’s race. He and several other drivers stayed on the track, while many of the leaders pitted.

Schrader couldn’t make it to the end of the race on gas, and as the caution dragged on, the team brought Schrader in to top off the fuel tank so he could make it the rest of the way. He did, but he dropped back to 31st when the race restarted.

Schrader dutifully moved into the Top 25, but then the power steering started failing, and Schrader faded to 28th.

“It was good effort by the ‘M&M’s’ guys, but we just couldn’t seem to put it together on the road course today,” Schrader said. “I thought we were getting better, but then the power steering went away on me. We’ll just try to get going again next week at Michigan.”

Tony Stewart won Sunday’s race, with Ryan Newman second and Robby Gordon third.
