Menard's Thoughts on Racing at Richmond International Raceway:
"Racing at Richmond (International Raceway) is significant because when we go back there in the fall it's the last race before the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. We want to do well and learn all we can this weekend, so we can take that knowledge and apply it to the fall race. Richmond is uniquely shaped so, as a driver, I've got to approach both ends of the track differently. It is shaped like a 'D,' and there is a really big arch going into turn one. Turn three is almost like a Martinsville (Speedway) turn. It has a really sharp entrance and it's not very open. On exit, it opens back up with the 'D' shape. Hopefully we can keep our fenders clean this weekend and come home with another top-10 finish."
