2014 Bristol II: Paul Menard NASCAR Sprint Cup Race Preview

This Week's Serta / Menards Chevrolet at Bristol Motor Speedway ... Paul Menard will pilot chassis No. 466 in the Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway. This No. 27 Chevrolet SS was utilized earlier this year at Kansas Speedway and Dover International Speedway where the Richard Childress Racing team finished 17th and 10th, respectively.

Bristol by the numbers ... Menard has 14 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series starts at the high-banked 0.533-mile track. His best start of fourth and finish of fifth both came in March of 2011. The Wisconsin native has completed 6,990 of 7,012 laps attempted (99.7 percent) at BMS.

Season-to-date ... Through 23 Sprint Cup Series races of the 2014 season, Menard has completed 5,974 of 6,121 laps contested (97.6 percent), led 45 laps and is currently 17th in the driver point standings. In addition, the RCR driver has four top-five and 10 top-10 finishes this season.

Looking Back ... Menard and the RCR team started the spring race in the rear of the field after an unapproved change post qualifying in Bristol. After driving through the field, Menard reported a flat tire and was forced to pit under green-flag conditions. The team would battle back from the 33rd position to finish 21st.

Why does the night race at Bristol Motor Speedway seem more intense than the day race?
"Probably because it's getting close to Chase time and everyone amps it up a notch. The first race is earlier in the year and everybody is trying to figure out where they're at. Now everyone knows where they're at and it's go time. Since the race is at night it adds a whole different element, too."

Where do you expect the racing groove to be at this time?
"They really haven't changed the track in a couple of years, so it's going to be where it was in the last few races. We're just up by the fence and with the ride-height rule and more aero this year, the cars handle better so you can run lower longer, but as the tires wear and the pace slows down you'll want to move to the top."
