11:04 AM ET 11.02 | Paul Menard will have some company when he makes the move to RCR next season. Crew chief Slugger Labbe, along with spotter Stevie Reeves, will be joining him on the team. "There will be some familiar voices on the radio, for sure," Menard said Saturday. "It's big. Slugger and I get along really well and we've hit on a few things this year that we can hopefully apply over there. It knocks a step out of the learning curve." The pair hope to usher in Menard's best season of his career after spending the first 10 weeks of 2010 in the top-20.

Last year it seemed you could find Menard in the wall or in the garage. He hasn't had a super year but he is vastly improved this year. I think he will do well with RCR equipment.

I said this before, look at Paul past teams ;) DEI before Chip G, last year Yates Ford, ....Paul had his best races before RPM started to die too. Next year the #27 with RCR, a Team not on Life Support

Paul has shown some minor improvement this year. He certainly is qualifying better, and has recently held on to a couple of his qualifying positions for a good part of the race.. a threat, yet, oh heck no.

I hope he does better at RCR, good driver with the right stuff.

A sponsor is a sponsor. It was just a little easier for him to get the sponsorship. LOL

Kinda like Paris Hilton, huh? Mediocre talent, but lots of money behind it.

Mediocre? That's a stretch, more like no talent. LOL

RCR didn't learn that 3 teams are better than 4? Menard is only still driving because of daddy. Who else would want to sponsor him? Dissapointed in RCR for doing this.................

More and more foolishness, it keeps creeping in under the fence. The spammers must be selling or they wouldn't continue with the postings.
