Two videos to hit from Tuesday’s NASCAR AMERICA on NBCSN:

First, with another top-five finish achieved Sunday at Michigan International Speedway, Paul Menard is now moving up the ranks of those without a win in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series points standings. He’s also coming off a win in the NASCAR Nationwide Series this weekend.

Carolyn Manno, Kyle Petty and Jeff Burton discuss standings after Michigan’s Quicken Loans 400, where Menard and Clint Bowyer climbed into the top 16 and Austin Dillon and Brian Vickers fell out.

Meanwhile no team is hotter than Hendrick Motorsports, which is riding a wave of five consecutive race victories with three of its drivers (Jimmie Johnson with three, Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt Jr. with one apiece).
