Stenhouse Jr. at ISM Raceway

·         Stenhouse has 11 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) starts at Phoenix with an average starting position of 19.9 and average finishing position of 19.2.

·         Last year, Stenhouse had one top-five and two top-10 finishes at the one-mile track.

Last time at Phoenix

After having to start in the rear due to going to a back-up car and working his way inside the top-20 when the caution flag waved just four laps shy of the end of stage two, Brian Pattie made a strategy call to stay out with a one-lap shootout to the end of stage two. In hopes to pick up valuable stage points, Stenhouse Jr. restarted in the third position and held on to collect eight valuable points.

With the final 100 laps going green and differing pit strategies, Stenhouse took the checkered flag in the 23rd position due to an ill handling machine.

Stenhouse Jr. on racing at Phoenix:

“Phoenix is a tough one-mile track but has been a good track for us in the past. We struggled there in the spring, but I feel like we made some gains at the test last month. Track position is crucial so qualifying will be important on Friday. Our main focus is to finish the season strong and carry that momentum in the off-season.”
