It's Official: Menard To Leave DEI
As expected, Yates Racing has announced that the team has reached an agreement with Paul Menard for next season in the Sprint Cup season.
Menard will leave Dale Earnhardt Inc at the end of the season. Along with him comes his sponsorship (his father’s Menards store), and his associate sponsors with come as well.
This is a great opportunity and I’m glad to be joining the Yates Racing organization next season. I think a lot of what Doug Yates and Max Jones are doing over there building for continued success. I’m excited to be a part of their future and excited to work with Travis [Kvapil] and David [Gilliland]. You look at what Doug and the Ford Motor Company have done in this sport, they’ve created a lot of horsepower and hoisted quite a few trophies over the years. I’d like to help continue that for both of them.
