Last Time at New Hampshire

On the Car
Fastenal is currently in its eighth season as a primary partner in the MENCS for Roush Fenway. They spent three years on the No. 99 before jumping over to the No. 17 entry, and were the primary partner on the No. 60 Xfinity team that captured the owner’s championship in 2011.
Stenhouse Jr. on racing at New Hampshire:
“New Hampshire is a fast one-mile track with multiple grooves. We’ve been decent there in the past. Last year, I thought we had a top-15 car but cut a tire late in the race. Track position is key, so qualifying will be important on Friday. With the forecasted high temperatures on Sunday, the track is going to be slick so it should be an exciting race.”
