Paul Menard
As veteran driver Paul Menard makes his final preparations before leaving for Daytona International Speedway, where his first drive in the No. 21 Omnicraft Ford Fusion will also be his 400th career Cup start, his goals for the opening weekend are pretty simple. "Hopefully we'll sit on the pole," Menard said, adding that his goal is within reason. "We have a fast Ford Fusion, and Fords typically are fast at Daytona." While Menard acknowledges that in some ways, his 400th start is just another number in a long career, it's also an important milestone in his career. "Having the Wood Brothers get their 100th win in my 400th start and my first in the No. 21 and at the Daytona 500. You couldn't write a better script than that."-Wood Brothers PR
