Returning to the Site of his First Cup Win

Last time at Talladega
After having to start at the rear for an unapproved adjustment, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. drove his Ford to the front leading 16 laps before blowing a tire coming to the white flag earning a 25th place finish in Sunday’s Geico 500 at Talladega Superspeedway.
On the Car
Iconic brand and thirst quenching favorite SunnyD will return to the No. 17 this weekend as the primary partner on the No. 17 Ford.
Driven for a Cause
Throughout the month of October, Roush Fenway Racing will show its support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month by running special pink numbers on its Ford Mustangs. In addition, Roush Fenway Fords will sport pink ‘Driven for a Cause’ ribbon decals on the C-Post all month long.
Stenhouse Jr. on racing at Talladega:
“I always look forward to Talladega, not only is it my home track but also the site of my first Cup win. The main thing is to be patient as anything can happen. Jimmy Fennig has been working really hard on our cars since Daytona as we think we found some things to make our Fords faster. With six races to go, our goal is to have a clean race and try to be there at the end to compete for the win.”
