NASCAR XFINITY Series - Kentucky 300
July 10, 2015 - Kentucky Speedway - Sparta, KY
Paul Menard started Saturday night's 200-lap event at Kentucky Speedway from the fifth position and fought changing track conditions to earn a sixth-place finish. The Richmond/Menards Chevrolet Camaro driver noted a loose-handling condition in the opening laps of the 300-mile event but quickly made his way into the top three, with lap times as fast as the leader. During the NASCAR-mandated competition caution on lap 25, crew chief Danny Stockman made the call for two tires and fuel, putting Menard second for the restart. Menard maintained his position within the top five for more than half of the race at Kentucky's 1.5-mile speedway. The Stockman-led team visited pit road three additional times for four tires, fuel and a combination of adjustments to battle changing handling conditions of the Richmond/Menards Chevy. Menard lined up fifth for the final restart of the night and crossed the finish line sixth, just 26 laps later.
We had a good Richmond/Menards Chevy tonight. Danny (Stockman, crew chief) and the guys made good adjustments all night to get us where we needed to be. I hate we didn't get a win, but we'll be back after Loudon for another shot at it. - Paul Menard
