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 Indianapolis:
“I’m really looking forward to this weekend especially getting to return to my roots and race at the 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, but I felt last year we had one of the best cars I have ever had at Indy. This race usually comes down to pit strategy which falls into Brian Pattie’s wheelhouse. This is our last chance. We have to win to get in.”
