Paul Menard's Thoughts on Talladega Superspeedway: "It's just all about staying out of trouble on the restrictor plate race tracks and being around for the last 20 or so laps. Knowing who you can draft with and where they are in the closing laps is important. I've got three teammates who are all great restrictor plate races, so that always helps. I think this Menards team is due a little bit of good luck, so I'm hopeful we can get through the wrecks and be there at the end to race for the win."

Chassis History: Crew chief Slugger Labbe and the No. 98 RPM crew have prepared chassis No. 548 for this weekend's event. This is the same Ford Fusion that the team ran in the first event at Talladega Superspeedway this season. Menard started 18th and finished 25th in that event.
