One of the longest tenured drivers currently driving in the Monster Energy Cup Series will retire at the end of the 2019 season.
Paul Menard, who has driven the past two seasons for the Wood Brothers, will retire from full time Cup series competition at the completion of the 2019 season. He ends his full time career with more than 460 starts over his sixteen year career. Menard’s only Cup win of his career came at the 2011 Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
“I’ve enjoyed every moment of my career racing in the NASCAR Cup Series and I’m so thankful for all the great memories and friendships I’ve made through this sport. But I’m looking forward to spending more time at home with my wife Jennifer and our two young children while moving forward with the next chapter of my life. I want to thank everyone at Wood Brothers Racing, along with Team Penske, and our partners at Menards, Motorcraft, Quick Lane Tire & Auto Centers and Ford. It’s been a privilege to work with them and some of the true legends of our sport, including Andy Petree, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Robert Yates, Richard Petty, Richard Childress, Roger Penske and Glen and Leonard Wood. I’m excited for what the future holds and I’m looking forward to sharing the plans for 2020 and beyond in the coming weeks,” Menard stated in an official release by his team Wood Brothers Racing.
