CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - Paul Menard is on crutches at Charlotte Motor Speedway because of a gash in his foot that required 20 stitches.
Menard said after Thursday's qualifying that he cut his right foot on the dock at his house. Elliott Sadler is on standby for Sunday in case Menard struggles in the Coca-Cola 600, which is NASCAR's longest race of the season.
Menard said he is not in pain, but doctors have warned him against anything that could rip the stitches. He's so far only bothered by having to wear larger shoes that can accommodate the injured foot.
He seemed embarrassed at his injury, particularly since crew chief Slugger Labbe had circled Charlotte as a track where Menard could earn his first Sprint Cup victory.
