NASCAR Nationwide Series - Kansas Lottery 300
October 5, 2013 - Kansas Speedway
Paul Menard, No. 33
Paul Menard will pilot chassis No. 130 at Kansas Speedway. This No. 33 Chevrolet Camaro was previously run this season at Chicagoland Speedway where Kevin Harvick drove it to a ninth-place finish. Menard has seven NASCAR Nationwide Series starts at Kansas Speedway. His best start of first came in 2004 and best finish of fourth in 2011. The Wisconsin native has completed 1,365 of 1,410 laps attempted (96.8 percent) at the 1.5-mile track, leading 110 of them.
I'm looking forward to going back to Kansas (Speedway) to run in the NASCAR Nationwide Series event this weekend. We led the most laps there in last year's race before coming up short on fuel in a green-white-checkered finish. We had the best car there last fall and I know the No. 33 team will give me another fast Rheem/Menards Chevrolet this weekend. This is my last Nationwide race of the season, so it would really be nice to get a win for No. 33 the guys. Kansas is a fast track and hopefully the racing groove will be a bit wider this time around than it was in the spring. - Paul Menard
