Paul Menard


I know very little about Paul Menard. Sure, I recognize the name, Menard Racing...but what do I know about Paul. I went and did some digging and will share what I found out: 
He started racing when he was 8 in the Briggs Junior Karting, winning the Championship and also winning the Junior Klass Championship. 
When He was 15 he raced in the IIRA, which is Ice Racing, and I am directly quoting from their website:
"IIRA is a group for sports car enthusiasts that like speed, wheel-to-wheel competition and the ultimate drifting experience.

 He won 10 of these races and continues to participate as time permits.

 In 2000, he started a limited run in the Arca Re/Max Challenge Series finishing 13th in points.

In 2001, his rookie season he earned a pole and a victory at Road America. He finished 9th in points that year.

In 2002 he competed in the ReMax Challenge earning 2 poles and finishing 7th in points, SCCA TransAm 4 top 10 finishes and 1 front row start, in the Grand Am Cup he won twice.

In 2003 he competed in all 3 top tier series for Andy Petree Racing while he continued racing in ARCA.

These are things I didn't know about Paul Menard. Hopefully, y'all learned something too.
