Stenhouse Jr. on Sprint Showdown:
“The Sprint Showdown and the All-Star race is one of the best races of the year. I feel confident that we can race our No. 17 Best Buy Ford into the All-Star race, but if not we have another chance by winning the fan vote. Best Buy and Roush Fenway developed a marketing platform called #LetRickyRace which will hopefully help us get in the race one way or another. If you haven’t voted, go vote at BestBuy.com/Racing. We tested at Charlotte earlier this season so I feel we learned a lot that will be beneficial to our organization the next two weekends.”
