Paul made his debut at Charlotte in 1984, driving a personally-owned vehicle. Starting the race in 33rd, Paul only got one lap in before an engine blew. That left him last, 41st, in his debut.
In 1985, Paul ran his car once again at Charlotte. Starting the event in 29th, Paul once again fell out of the race early with engine failure. However, it was still good enough for 35th in the field.
Paul's last race came in 1987, when he started 30th at Michigan International Speedway, but once again engine failure derailed him. Blowing up on lap 104, Paul finished 35th, matching his career best.
