Last time at Atlanta
After steadily running in the top-10 for a majority of Sunday’s Fold of Honors Quik Trip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Stenhouse Jr. lined up in the seventh position for the final restart but as he was jockeying for position contact was made with the No. 1 machine causing damage to the right front fender. After the damage, the Ford was tight causing Stenhouse to settle with a 13th-place finish.

Stenhouse Jr. on racing at Atlanta:
“Atlanta is one of my favorite tracks on the circuit. It’s rough and fast. Last year, we ran solidly in the top-10 for a majority of the race so I’m looking forward to getting on track there this weekend. During the off-season, we focused on our intermediate program so this will allow us to see how we stack up. We will keep adjusting on our Ford and hopefully can leave Atlanta with a solid finish.”
