After a lengthy rain delay, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. was solidly running in the top 15 when the No. 17 Ford got loose under another machine sending him into the inside wall. The damage was too severe to continue forcing him to settle with a 35th-place finish at the historical Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Stenhouse Jr. on racing at Indianapolis:
“I’m really looking forward to this weekend especially with the new dirt track inside Turn 3. I always enjoy coming back to Indy since I didn’t live too far from the speedway for about a year when I raced Sprint Cars. We have one more chance to get in to the playoffs. Indy has been a difficult track for me at times. I know everyone at Roush Fenway Racing is working really hard on our cars for this weekend. It’s cool to have John Deere back on our Ford at IMS. Pit strategy usually comes into play. This is our last chance. We have to win to get in.”
