What's Your Point ... After finishing 16th at Daytona International Speedway, Menard moved up in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver championship point standings and sits 10th, only eight markers out of ninth, heading into Loudon this weekend.

Looking Back ... Menard qualified 14th for last year's spring race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. The No. 27 Chevrolet team battled mechanical issues the entire event, which relegated the team to a 17th-place finish.

A lot of people describe New Hampshire Motor Speedway as the way Phoenix International Raceway used to be. What do you think about it?
"It's a fun track. It has not been good to me in the Sprint Cup Series, so we are going to run the Nationwide Series race up there to try and get better. It has been good for me in the Nationwide Series, though. We'll try and make that transition a little better. It's a fun track, you can run on what's kind of like an apron. The bottom groove is flat, so it's like having an apron. The fast groove is a little more up, so it's like having high banking so you can change your position around a little bit. It's definitely a cool track."

Why is it so hard to get a hold of the track?
"It's really hard to pass, for one. New Hampshire is one of those tracks where everyone basically runs the same speed. There are usually about five guys that stand out and everyone else runs the same speed. It's really hard to pass, but it's a couple grooves so you just have to make your car work where the other guys can't. We'll try to work on that apron and get some good drive off, but you have to maintain the turn."
