Ricky Stenhouse Jr. – Scott EZ Seed 300 FAST FACTS
Team: No. 6 Blackwell Angus Ford Mustang
Crew Chief: Mike Kelley
Chassis: RK-595 THE STATS
Ricky Stenhouse Jr., No. 6 Blackwell Angus Ford Mustang: “Bristol is almost like a superspeedway race. A wreck can happen and take out everybody. We ran really well there at the night race. We had a really strong top-10 run and got a flat tire there late in the race and ended up toward the back. We’re really looking forward to Bristol. I think we’ve got a really good short track program. And then if we can get through Bristol and California going into that last off-weekend I think we’ll be set up a little better than a lot of people.”
Mike Kelley, Crew Chief, No. 6 Blackwell Angus Ford Mustang: “You deal with a lot of things at Bristol that you will not deal with anywhere else: congestion on pit road, the noise is unrelenting, what the driver goes through is asked only at Bristol, the focus level. That’s why you see a lot of simple mistakes. Bristol is an animal of its own. I’ve been really fortunate. I think we won four or five races in the Cup series with Kurt [Busch] there. We won with David [Ragan] in the Nationwide Series two years ago. I really feel like that’s a track where Ricky will excel at when we get there.”
Stenhouse Jr. enters the Bristol race second in the series championship standings, two points behind leader Reed Sorenson…Is the only series regular to score top-10 finishes in all three races this season…Led the 2010 spring race at Bristol once for four laps…Has completed 517 of 550 possible laps in two Bristol starts (94 percent)… First career NNS pole came at Iowa Speedway – a short track – in his sixth career start.
