There was nothing fluky about this performance. Menard raced inside the Top 10 all evening in the Toyota Owners 400. He earned valuable stage points by finishing inside the Top 10 in all three stages. Menard hasn't been the best at short track racing over his career, but he's bucked that trend the last two weeks with great performances at Bristol and now Richmond. His second Top 10 of the season moved him up three positions to 16th-place in the current driver point standings.
