Stenhouse, Jr. on racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway:

“I’m looking forward to racing at Las Vegas this weekend because Roush Fenway has had great success at this 1.5-mile track.  You must have a good handling race car at Las Vegas because the track surface is so bumpy. I know Mike Kelley and the guys have been working hard on our shock package and getting the balance right for our No. 6 Ford. We will carry our momentum into this weekend, and hopefully can get this No. 6 Ford Ecoboost Mustang into Victory Lane.”

Crew chief Mike Kelley on racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway:

“Las Vegas has been a good track for the entire Roush Fenway organization, so I’m looking forward to racing there this weekend. We are bringing a brand new Nationwide chassis that I feel confident will perform well on this rough track surface. Handling is key at Vegas, so we have been working hard to get the balance right.  I feel confident that we will have a strong run and continue Roush Fenway’s success this weekend.”
