30 Odd 6 – Paul Menard

30 Odd 6 is your weekly feature focusing on the 30th driver in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. Like last week, we’re doing 6 facts on the 30th place starter, only from the Pure Michigan 400.

Name: Paul Menard

Age: 36 (turns 37 on August 21)

Hometown: Eau Claire, Wisconsin

Team: Richard Childress Racing

 

“Odd 6” facts

  1. His family owns the home improvement chain store Menards – his dad started it in 1960.
  2. He went to the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire (Blugolds? Blugolds?! #WhatAreThose – looks like it’s based on school colors, which I dislike on reasons of being an Ohio State alum) and majored in business.
  3. He enjoys skiing, hiking, dirt bikes, karting and boating when he’s not in the car.
  4. He’s married and his wife’s name is Jennifer.
  5. They also have one daughter, who turned 3 in March.
  6. I’m cheating (again….don’t judge lol) but Menards also has sponsored Robby Gordon, P. J. Jones, Brandon Jones, Matt Crafton and Simon Pagenaud.
