Paul Menard will have to start from the rear at Texas on Sunday.
He probably doesn’t care.
Menard wasn’t at qualifying on Friday because he became a daddy for the second time when his wife gave bitth on Wednesday.
Daniel Hemric qualified in the No. 27 Chevrolet for Menard since he wasn’t available. But as a result, NASCAR rules say Menard is going to have to start from the rear.
That’s a small price to pay.
Congratulations to the Menards!
