Today, Paul Menard became the latest Wisconsin driver to win a NASCAR race as he won the Brickyard 400 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
He defeated Jeff Gordon by about a second by saving just enough fuel to win the race. The race was extremely boring as there was little side by side racing except on the restarts and just 1 minor crash..
Menard joins Matt Kenseth, Alan Kulwicki and Dave Marcis as other Wisconsin drivers who have won in NASCAR Sprint and Winston Cup races.
So congratulations to Paul Menard for his first win.
