May 01, 2013, Reid Spencer, NASCAR Wire Service,

2,990: The total number of laps completed by Paul Menard in nine NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races this season, making him the only driver to have finished on the lead lap in every event. Thanks to that remarkably consistent performance, Menard is 10th in the series standings more than a third of the way to the cutoff for the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. Jimmie Johnson is second in the laps completed stat, having run 2,988 laps this year. First in the standings by a 43-point margin over Carl Edwards, Johnson has led 439 laps this season to Menard's two.
