Concord, N.C. (May 7, 2013) – Fans of Roush Fenway Racing (RFR) driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. are encouraged to visit www.BestBuy.com/Racing and ‘hit the link’ to help vote the RFR rookie and Best Buy racer into this season’s NASCAR Sprint All-Star race at Charlotte Motor Speedway on May 18.
In addition, fans of Stenhouse are encouraged to use the special hashtag #LETRICKYRACE when tweeting, in an effort to escalate the ‘cause’ to viral proportions.
“Make no mistake, my clear intention is to race my way in,” said Stenhouse, who has led in two of the last three Sprint Cup races. “However, I’ve learned it never hurts to have a solid backup plan and if that is relying on my great fans to help a little, then I have no problem with taking it. The folks at Best Buy have set up this link to help ‘rally the troops’, and if we don’t get that win, hopefully that will be the difference maker.”
The defending two-time Nationwide Series Champion will also have the opportunity to race his way into the event via a win this weekend in the Sprint Cup Series at Darlington or in the Sprint Showdown prior to the All-Star race..
Once in the race, Stenhouse will have the opportunity to become the fourth Roush Fenway driver to win the prestigious event. Carl Edwards won the famed All-Star race two years ago. Edwards and fellow RFR driver Greg Biffle are both locked into this year’s event.
