CONCORD, NC - MAY 18: A tribute decal for Dick Trickle is shown on the car of Paul Menard (not pictured), driver of the #27 Serta/Menard's Chevrolet, prior to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Showdown at Charlotte Motor Speedway on May 18, 2013 in Concord, North Carolina.
It’s a big deal to be able to run in this series ... Driving these stock cars, it’s the closest you can get to driving a Sprint Cup car. They’ve got the same motors, and the same build, and if you can drive these, it’s a really big advantage.
We’re running the Sprint Cup car ten times and then we’re going to run a couple of Truck races, Bristol and the Eldora, Ohio Truck race on the dirt ... And then we’re running four or five ARCA races and my little dirt modified somewhere between 60 to 70 nights.
If you're a full-time Sprint Cup guy and don't get it, that's hard ... You want to feel like you've been a part of it. When you go home early, it's hard. It's hard to get in your car and drive out of here while the race is going on.More quotes »
