NASCAR XFINITY Series - Lilly Diabetes 250
July 25, 2015 - Indianapolis Motor Speedway - Indianapolis, IN
Paul Menard started Saturday's 100-lap NASCAR XFNITY Series event at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway from the fourth spot and led laps early en route to a fourth-place finish. Menard reported the car was loose-in and tight-off the corner on lap four, but maintained his position within the top five. The Danny Stockman-led team made the decision to skip pit road when the caution was displayed on lap 12, putting Menard in second for the restart. The Eau Claire, Wisconsin native battled the No. 54 car and took the lead on lap 17 for nine laps of competition. On lap 22, the caution flag was displayed allowing Stockman to call Menard down pit road on lap 27 for four tires, fuel and a wedge adjustment. Menard restarted 19th on lap 30 and raced his way back into the top five by lap 38. When the checkered flag waved 62 laps later, Menard crossed the finish line fourth.
We had an awesome car today. It was fast at the beginning of the race then we made an adjustment that got it out of the track, so we lost some momentum. I'm proud of my boys for bringing a fast Richmond/Menards Chevy this weekend. We'll get them in Watkins Glen when I race in this Series again. - Paul Menard
