Racing Weekly for May 16th, 2010

This weekend the drivers of Nascar will race for pride not points as the sprint All Star race takes place in Charlotte.Eau Claire native Paul Menard is automatically entered into the race after his win at Indianapolis last season.

This season has been a struggle for Menard and his Richard Childress racing teamates. Through 11 races, none of the RCR cars have gone to victory lane. Compare that to last year when the team won 6 races. It's a problem Menard says the team hopes to resolve soon.

"There have been a lot of meetings the last couple of weeks, as a company we just have not been that strong. Kevin Harvick is sitting pretty well in points, but he is not happy with the way things are going with trying to develop this car, Jeff Burton and myself are kind of in the same boat, we just need to keep developing these cars. So we have a lot of testing planned in the next month, just to try new things."
