Paul Menard, No. 27
Paul Menard will pilot chassis No. 403 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. This No. 27 Chevrolet SS was run previously this season at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Kansas Speedway and Pocono Raceway. Menard has 11 starts at Atlanta Motor Speedway. His best start of 19th and best finish of fifth both came in 2010. The Wisconsin native has completed 3,527 of 3,602 laps attempted (97.9 percent) at the 1.54-mile Georgia track. Starting 18th, Menard overcame handling issues to finish eighth at Atlanta Motor Speedway in last year's AdvoCare 500.
Atlanta (Motor Speedway) is one of my favorite tracks. I've had some good races there in the past and we've got some momentum heading into this weekend after our sixth-place finish at Bristol (Motor Speedway). It's a track that races really well and it's a lot of fun, especially with it now being a night race. The race track itself has older pavement, which makes it hands down the raciest track we go to on the schedule. It's kind of a throw-back track that we all enjoy racing. - Paul Menard
