(Indianapolis, IN) -- NASCAR's Sprint Cup Series heads to The Brickyard this weekend for Sunday's Crown Royal 400. Paul Menard recorded his first ever Sprint Cup Series win last season after he conserved enough fuel to hold off a hard-charging Jeff Gordon in the closing laps to take one of the most prestigious events of the season. With the win, Menard became the first driver to win his maiden Sprint Cup race at Indianapolis. The Sprint Cup Series was off last weekend. Kasey Kahne [[ Kane ]] won at New Hampshire two weeks ago. Matt Kenseth holds a 16-point lead over Dale Earnhardt Jr. atop the Cup Standings. Greg Biffle, Jimmie Johnson and Denny Hamlin round out the top-five.
