Stenhouse, Jr. on racing at Talladega Superspeedway:
“I am looking forward to racing at Talladega. We had a strong Ford Mustang at Daytona but were caught in the last lap wreck. We need to find a drafting partner early on in the race to work with. Our plan is to stay out of trouble and be up front at the end to be able to go for the win. It would be great to get this new Cargill Beef/Blackwell Angus paint scheme to victory lane. ”
Crew chief Mike Kelley on racing at Talladega Superspeedway:
“Talladega is your typical superspeedway racing. You never know what Talladega will produce, but our intention is to carry our momentum in there and win on a superspeedway. Our No. 6 team has done a great job all year on pit road so with another solid performance on pit road, we are hoping to take this Cargill Beef/Blackwell Angus Ford back to victory lane.”
So far in 2012, Ricky has two wins, five top-five, and six top-ten. Stenhouse is currently second in the point standings; 2 points behind leader Elliott Sadler. At Talladega, Stenhouse will pilot the No. 6 Cargill Beef/Blackwell Angus Ford. Stenhouse has not finished outside the top-six in the past 6 races.
