Stenhouse, Jr. on racing at Auto Club Speedway:

“I’m looking forward to racing at Fontana this weekend. This is a fun, slick and fast two-mile track. We were disappointed with our finish last weekend at Bristol but we will rebound and go for the win this weekend. I am very confident in my team and our No. 6 Roush Fenway 25 Winning Years Ford Mustang and feel that we can get back to victory lane this weekend.”

Crew chief Mike Kelley on racing at Auto Club Speedway:

“Fontana is track where you need your car to handle through the corners because the cars carry so much speed through the turns. We were disappointed in our finish at Bristol last weekend. We felt like we gave up the win but that is last week and we will focus on going to Fontana and having another strong performance. We will keep adjusting on our No. 6 Mustang to get the handling perfect for Ricky and hopefully we will be celebrating in victory lane after the race.”


So far in 2012, Ricky has one win, two top-five, and three top-ten. Stenhouse is currently second in the point standings; 25 points behind leader Elliott Sadler. Stenhouse will be the in-race reporter for the Nationwide Royal Purple 300.
