Paul Menard and Richard Childress Racing have both confirmed that the Menard’s sponsorship will continue on the No. 27 Chevy along with the driver in 2016.

Menard is currently 14th in the Sprint Cup point standings. He has a 10-point advantage over 15th-place Clint Bowyer, who is the last driver currently on the Chase grid based on points.

Menard has enjoyed a consistent season. The 35-year-old Eau Claire, Wisc. native has two top fives and four top 10 finishes in Cup. In the Xfinity Series, Menard earned his third career win at his home track — Road America.  

Year-to-year deal

He is currently in his fifth season with RCR. In 2011, Menard won the Brickyard 400 — his first career Cup victory.

“It’s always good to have them back,” Childress told Motorsport.com. “We kind of work a year-to-year deal. We got a three-year deal with options so it’s good to have them back.

“Paul’s a good race car driver. They’re good people to work with and we like promoting their business.”
