Nascar drivers such as Eau Claire's Paul Menard have to adjust to the varying lengths of track from week to week. From super speedways like Daytona and Talladega to short tracks like Bristol and Martinsville and every other track in between.
As Menard tells us in Racing Weekly, the change really isn't as difficult as you would think.
"On a week-to-week basis, it's really not that difficult. We go from intermediate track to a road course to a short track like Bristol or somewhere, Bristol, Watkins Glen, Pocono, they all kind of line up.
It's not that difficult really. We have all been doing this so long, most of us have a ton of laps at these tracks. You get in Friday morning and it comes right back to you, and you look at your notes throughout the week and the kind of issues you fought the previous time you're there. Come Friday morning, you're ready to go. "
