Stenhouse, Jr – Chicagoland Speedway
Stenhouse, Jr. on racing at Chicagoland Speedway:
“I am looking forward to going back to Chicagoland. We didn’t get the finish we wanted there earlier this year due to some bad luck. We have had a lot of success at 1.5-mile tracks so far this year and they are becoming my favorite type of track to race at. I feel confident that we will have a strong No. 6 Mustang and we will be battling for the win at Chicagoland.”
Crew chief Mike Kelley on racing at Chicagoland Speedway:
“Ricky has mastered the 1.5-mile race tracks this year. This will be a completely different set-up than we ran there earlier in the year due to racing during the day. This track is super fast and slick which suits Ricky’s driving style. Our No. 6 team did an excellent job on pit-road last week so with fast pit stops and the right adjustments, I am confident that we can get this Ford back to victory lane and our third victory of the season.”
So far in 2011, Stenhouse, Jr. has two wins, 12 top-fives, 19 top-tens, and three poles.
