One Week Ago ... Last Sunday at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Menard started 21st, led six laps and finished in a very respectable third place. As a result, he currently sits 18th in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver points standings heading into the fourth race of the 2014 season.

What will it take to be successful at Bristol Motor Speedway?
"We've put together some pretty good starts and finishes at Bristol in recent years. Qualifying is going to be interesting for the No. 27 Richmond/Menards Chevrolet team this weekend with the new format. We just need to be proactive during the first session and try to make it into the top-12 fast cars to get the pole, or at least a good starting position. For the race, this is a track where it's important to find a good rhythm early and keep that pace going for all 500 laps. It was a great race for us last weekend in Las Vegas, and we're hoping to keep that momentum going for this team."
