HOT – Paul Menard

Menard is currently sitting inside of the top-20 in points, not too shabby. What is more impressive is that in 10 races this season he had five top-10 finishes. He has more top-10 finishes than seven of the drivers ahead of him in the point standings heading into Kansas. Menard is also coming off of an impressive top-10 run last week at Talladega. Obviously his non-top-10 finishes aren’t very impressive but thus far he has been quietly having a very good 2014 season.
