Stenhouse Jr. To Run for Mississippi Flood Relief at Dover

Stenhouse and Roush Feneway are teaming up this weekend to bring attention to relief efforts for those affected by the recent flooding of the Mississippi River. Those interested in helping with relief efforts are encouraged to contact www.nascar.com/unites for more information (under Ricky Stenhouse Jr. Mississippi Flood Relief). The Lionel NASCAR Collectables company will produce a limited number of die cast replica cars with this paint scheme and a portion of those sales will be donated to the relief fund. Additionally, the hood from the No. 6 Ford Mustang will be autographed by Stenhouse Jr. and auctioned off through the NASCAR Foundation in an effort to generate additional revenue for the cause.
