2013 Daytona II (Coke Zero 400): Paul Menard NASCAR Sprint Cup Race Preview

This Week's Rheem/Menards Chevrolet ... Paul Menard will pilot chassis No. 406 at Daytona International Speedway. This No. 27 Chevrolet SS was previously run this season at Talladega Superspeedway and tested at Daytona in January and April earlier this year.

Daytona Stats ...Menard has 12 starts at Daytona International Speedway. His best start of first came in 2008 and best finish of sixth came in 2012. The Wisconsin native has completed 2,133 of 2,148 laps attempted (99.3 percent) at the famed superspeedway, leading 38 of them.

Red and Black ... The No. 27 Rheem/Menards Chevrolet SS will sport a different look this weekend carrying a special paint scheme combination of Rheem red and black, in addition to Menards yellow.

Gotta Have a Rheem ...Rheem Manufacturing Company (www.rheem.com) is privately held with headquarters in Atlanta and U.S. operations in Alabama, Arkansas, California, Indiana, North Carolina and Texas. In its 88th year of operation, the company manufactures a full-line of eco-friendly, technologically advanced residential and commercial heating and cooling systems; tank, tankless, solar and hybrid heat pump water heaters; whole-home standby generators, controls, swimming pool and spa heaters; indoor air-purification products; and commercial boilers throughout North America and world markets. The company's premium brands, including Rheem, Raypak, Ruud and Richmond have been recognized with countless industry and consumer awards for reliability, innovative design and high quality. Rheem is the official heating, cooling and water heating supplier to Richard Childress Racing, and is a primary sponsor of RCR's No. 29 Chevrolet in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and RCR's No. 33 Chevrolet in the NASCAR Nationwide Series.

Race Rewind ... Starting 13th, Menard was running inside the top 10 when he was involved in a late-race, multi-car incident causing him to finish 14th in last year's summer event under the lights at Daytona International Speedway.

Menard's Thoughts on Racing at Daytona International Speedway:
"They repaved Daytona (International Speedway) a couple of years ago and from that point until now, the track has lost a lot of grip. In the Daytona 500, we found that we had to lift during the race to slow the cars up enough to have some grip. When we go back this weekend in the heat of the summer, I think the track will be even more slippery. It's probably going to come down to how the car handles, a lot like it used to be before the repave. Every time we go back, handling becomes more and more important and I don't see that changing this weekend. We have already tested our Rheem/Menards Chevrolet twice this season at Daytona, so hopefully we can use what we learned from those tests and apply it this weekend."
