NASCAR Sprint Cup Series - AAA 400
September 29, 2013 - Dover International Speedway
Paul Menard, No. 27
Paul Menard will pilot chassis No. 414 at Dover International Speedway this weekend. This No. 27 Chevrolet SS previously ran this season at Auto Club Speedway, Darlington Raceway, Kentucky Speedway and Bristol Motor Speedway, with a best finish of sixth coming at Bristol. Menard has 12 starts at Dover International Speedway. His best start of third came in 2011 and best finish of seventh came in 2010. The Wisconsin native has completed 4,742 of 4,800 laps attempted (98.8 percent) at the Delaware track.
I really enjoy going to Dover (International Speedway). The corners are really wide and then it funnels down into pretty narrow straightaways with walls on either side. So if something happens, there's probably a good chance multiple cars are going to get caught up in it. It's a track where you can really feel the speed inside the car. As a driver you've got to be on top of your game, because anything can happen at Dover. The spotters have to stay on their toes also. It is tough for us to see very far ahead because there's so much banking, so we have to really rely on our spotters to help us out. "The Monster Mile" hasn't been too good to us lately, so we are hoping to change our luck this weekend and bring home a good finish in our CertainTeed/Menards Chevrolet. - Paul Menard
