The NASCAR season is back upon us and it is time to get you caught up with everything that happened in the offseason. Start ‘N’ Park Blog will be going through their list of drivers running the full schedule in 2013 and telling you what you can expect from those drivers in the new year. Today’s entry is the driver of the #27 Menards, Paul Menard. Driver: Paul Menard #27 Sponsor(s): Menards Make: Chevrolet Team: Richard Childress Racing Crew Chief: Slugger Labbe 2012 Finish: 16th What’s new for 2013: No reported changes for this team. Mike’s Rank: 21st Mike’s Take: I predict no wins and more disappointment for this team. I thought the team turned the page in 2011 winning a race and being in the Chase talk. Then 2012 happened and he was decent, just not great. The focus at RCR will be the Dillon boys and not Paul Menard. Jason’s Rank: 22nd Jason’s Take: No shocks will come from Menard this season and problems will faze him and his team throughout the year. Brandon’s Rank: 34th Brittany’s Rank: 25th Brittany’s Take: Mid-20s every race, this is an appropriate ranking.
