Menard Signs Three-Year Extension With RCR

Paul Menard [1]Richard Childress Racing has signed a three-year extension with driver Paul Menard. The extension also means that Menards will sponsor the team’s No. 27 Sprint Cup Series Chevy for an additional three years.

Menard joined RCR in 2011 [2], and drove the No. 27 to a victory in the Brickyard 400 [3] that year.

Team owner Richard Childress said:

It is great to have Paul Menard back in the #27 Menards Chevrolet as our driver. He has shown his ability to be consistent, competitive and win on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series level. He did that in the Brickyard 400 (2011) with us at Indy. Having ‘Slugger’ Labbe (crew chief) and the entire crew coming back gives us something to build on to win more races, make The Chase and contend for a championship. We are very excited to continue our partnership with Menards. They are a great organization with strong customer service values who successfully use their racing program to promote their business. We couldn’t be prouder to represent them as part of our race team and future.

Menard said:

My family, all of our great team members at Menards and I are excited to extend our partnership with Richard and Richard Childress Racing. Being part of a family-owned and operated business I can relate to the team’s goals and objectives. We will continue to grow together and build our relationship, achieving even greater accomplishments in the future.
