Ken Schrader’s Thoughts On Richmond International Raceway:

“If someone were looking to build a race track, I would advise them to look really closely at Richmond. It is really a great little race track, and I always have a lot of fun going there. What you get at Richmond is a lot of hard, fun, Saturday night short track racing. The cars put on quite a show for the fans there. Hopefully, the little “M&M’s”® car will put on a good show of its own this weekend.”

“M&M’s”® Racing At Richmond International Raceway:

Never one to pass up a chance to slide behind the wheel, Ken Schrader will keep busy on the race track at Richmond this weekend. Schrader plans to compete in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Race in the No. 52 Schrader Racing Entry on Thursday night. He’ll take to the again Saturday night in the No. 36 “M&M’s”® machine for the Winston Cup event.

In many ways, Schrader considers Richmond the birthplace of his Winston Cup career. The now 18-year-veteran spent a lot of time in the Richmond area with his first car owner, Junie Donlavey, during his first few seasons.

Among Schrader’s favorite racing memories, he counts his first win for Donlavey in the Twin 125s at Daytona in 1987. “Everyone was so happy that Junie was going to victory lane,” Schrader said. “He is one of the hardest working men in the garage, and everyone really respects him. So it was really a special moment for me to win for Junie.”

The “M&M’s”® Racing Team brought a new car to Richmond earlier this year. Thanks to several solid pit stops, the team came home with a 15th-place effort. The “M&M’s”® team will unload that same car at the .75-mile oval this weekend.
