2014 Michigan: Paul Menard NASCAR Nationwide Race Preview

This Week's NIBCO / Menards Chevrolet at Michigan International Speedway ... This weekend in the Ollie's Bargain Outlet 250 at Michigan International Speedway, Paul Menard and the No. 33 NIBCO / Menards Chevrolet Camaro will race chassis No. 146.

Menard at Michigan ... In eight NASCAR Nationwide Series starts at MIS, Menard has earned five top-five finishes and seven top-10s with an average starting position of 11.5 and an average finish of 8.5. Menard has completed 99.9 percent of the laps around the two-mile track in the Nationwide Series. In addition, Menard has 15 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series starts.

Double Duty ... In addition to driving the No. 33 NIBCO / Menards Chevrolet Camaro in Saturday afternoon's race, Menard will pilot the No. 27 Pittsburgh Paints / Menards Chevrolet SS in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event on Sunday afternoon. This race is scheduled to air live on TNT at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time, along with the Motor Racing Network and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.

Looking Back ... Paul Menard qualified second during last year's 125-lap Nationwide Series event in Michigan. Menard fought a tight-handling condition in traffic, but had a car faster than the leader which ultimately led to a third-place finish at the two-mile track.

What are your thoughts heading in to your first double-duty weekend in Michigan?
"I'm looking forward to getting back in a Nationwide Series car this weekend. Double duty always makes for a busy weekend but I like getting the extra seat time, especially at a track like Michigan. It'll be interesting to see what the track surface is like after another year of aging. I'm hoping the groove has widened even more and we can see a lot of side-by-side racing in the NIBCO / Menards Chevrolet."
