Stenhouse Jr. on racing at Kentucky:
“Kentucky is my style of track because it is a 1.5-mile rough track. It is close to home so it will be good to see some family and friends. Fifth Third Bank will make their debut this season on our Ford this weekend so it would be great to have a solid run for them this weekend at Kentucky.”
Mike Kelley on racing at Kentucky:
“Kentucky is a rough 1.5-mile track, but really suits Ricky’s driving style. The main thing is we practice during the day but race at night so you have to make sure you don’t over adjust on your car. Luck hasn’t been on our side so hopefully we can turn that around in Kentucky and get another top-10 finish.”
