Paul Menards Thoughts about Teammate Changes This Season:
"The atmosphere is good around Richard Childress Racing with the new NASCAR Sprint Cup Series teams. The No. 27 team is pretty intact with the exception of two new engineers, but for the most part we have the same core group of guys. There are a lot of changes around us with Ryan (Newman) and Austin (Dillon), which is exciting. Ryan brings a new outlook to RCR and a level of experience to our group as a consistent Chase (for the NASCAR Sprint Cup) driver with multiple wins and has worked with several premier racing organizations. Austin has more NASCAR championships than Ryan and I combined. He's a young kid full of energy and he's a lot of fun to be around. I think it's going to be a great and I'm ready to get it all started."

Menard's Thoughts on the Daytona 500: "The Daytona 500 is the biggest race of the year for our sport. You can hear and feel the excitement building through the day as we get ready for the green flag. RCR and our No. 27 Menards team has put a lot of work into this race and we feel good about our Chevrolet. The best part for me is getting in the car, strapping in and thinking about the 500 miles of intense racing that lies ahead at Daytona. Winning this race is a dream for any driver and I hope we're right there when the checkered flag flies on Sunday."
