This Week's Moen/Menards Chevrolet at Pocono Raceway... Paul Menard will pilot chassis No. 463 in the 400-mile event at Pocono Raceway. This No. 27 Chevrolet SS was previously raced this year at Darlington Raceway where Menard finished in the 41st position after a late-race incident.

Looking Back ... In last year's 160-lap race, Menard started the No. 27 Chevrolet from the ninth position and was relegated to a 30th-place finish after a late-race incident.

How do you set-up up for Pocono since it's such a unique track?
"Pocono is a great track as far as uniqueness, obviously. We shift (gears) there, and a lot of guys have been doing that the last couple of years which adds a different element. It's kind of like a big road course really, you just turn left. The hardest part is trying to get your car out of the air while still maintaining grip in the corners. In Turn 1, it's real wide and has pretty good banking where you can run side-by-side. Turn 2 is really flat and sharp which makes it very difficult to run side-by-side through. Turn 3 is in-between, it's real flat but with a sweeping, pretty wide corner. It's definitely a unique track."
