Paul Menard signs extension with Richard Childress Racing

USA TODAY Sports

Paul Menard has signed a contract extension with Richard Childress Racing.

Paul Menard is staying with Richard Childress Racing, having signed a multiyear extension to remain with the team he has been with since 2011.

The 32-year-old driver will continue to be sponsored by Menards, his family's home improvement chain.

In his seventh full season in the Sprint Cup Series, Menard has seemingly found a home at RCR working with crew chief Slugger Labbe. Two years ago, he won the Brickyard 400 -- his first career victory -- and heading into Sunday's Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, he is tied for tenth in points.

"It is great to have Paul Menard back in the No. 27 Menards Chevrolet as our driver," Richard Childress said in a statement. "He has shown his ability to be consistent, competitive and win.

"Having Slugger Labbe and the entire crew coming back gives us something to build on to win more races, make the Chase and contend for a championship."
