2013 Sonoma: Paul Menard NASCAR Sprint Cup Race Preview

This Week's Moen/Menards Chevrolet ... Paul Menard will pilot chassis No. 358 at Sonoma Raceway. This No. 27 Chevrolet SS was previously raced by Menard at Sonoma in 2011 and 2012.

Wine Country Stats... Menard has five starts at Sonoma Raceway. His best start of third and best finish of 17th both came in 2011. The Wisconsin native has completed 556 of 567 laps attempted (99.8 percent) at the 1.99-mile road course.

Race Rewind ... Starting 23rd, Menard was in contention for a top-15 finish when a late-race spin relegated the No. 27 team to a 20th-place finish at the Sonoma, Calif., road course last season.

Menard's Thoughts on Road Course Racing and Sonoma Raceway:
"I enjoy road-course racing at Sonoma (Raceway). We've always had a fast car there, but just haven't had the stats to show for it. We are taking the same car back this year that we've raced the past two years, so I'm confident we'll have another fast Moen/Menards Chevrolet this weekend. I wouldn't mind if we had a couple more road-course races on the schedule to break up the oval racing a bit. Racing in Sonoma and Watkins Glen (International) is a lot different from what we do week-to-week. There is a lot of shifting involved and we make both right and left turns. Even though we only go to two road-course events a year, it doesn't take long to get back into that type of race mode again. I've run a lot of laps at Sonoma, so it's just like going to any track. You remember what you did last year and you have confidence that your car is going to respond the same."
