Why is Paul Menard still in sprint cup?
Obviously the only reason he races is because of daddy's money. There are so many other drivers who could do better in that #27 car than Menard.
I don't hate him just don't see why he's in cup.

racing is a business. Paul Menard works for Richard Childress who owns three cars in the Cup Series.
They have a successful business agreement and it's obviously working out well for both parties.
The Menard family is well established and contribute heavily to the world of motorsports.
In life you need to have certain assets that enable you to achieve your goals. And in a good
business partnership these qualities are reciprocated.
It's a good thing, and there are no two relationships the same, between owners and drivers.

For the same reason Danica, Jr, Travis Pastrana, Brendan Gaughan, and Michael Annett get to race. They come with a sponsor attached or in Jr's case can raise one easily. YES, I know Pastrana, no longer does nascar. But, there's your answer.....MONEY. Some can " buy a ride ".
