Menard looks to become just the second driver to repeat in the Brickyard 400.
Welcome to SportsNation! On Friday, we'll have driver of NASCAR's Sprint Cup No. 27 car Paul Menard of Richard Childress Racing stops by to chat prior to this weekend's Crown Royal presents the Curtiss Shaver 400 at the Brickyard race (Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, ESPN).
Menard, currently 15th in the points standings, won last year's Brickyard 400 for the first win of his career. He made a final pass with four laps to go before holding off Jeff Gordon for the victory, making him one of five first-time winners in 2011.
Last year, a career-best 8 top-10s and 4 top-5s helped Menard to a 17th-place ranking, the best finish in his five full seasons in Sprint Cup.
