Looking To Turn It Around | Ricky Stenhouse Jr New Hampshire Advance

Stenhouse on racing at New Hampshire:

“I’m looking forward to racing at New Hampshire this weekend. I can’t think of a better track to turn our season around since it is the home track for the Boston Red Sox and Fenway Sports Group. We have had some solid runs this year at the short tracks so hopefully we can get a top-10 finish this weekend in our Cargill Beef/Wegman’s Ford.” 

ADVANCE NOTES

Kelley on racing at New Hampshire:

 

“New Hampshire is a fast one-mile track that Ricky had success at in Nationwide days. This is Fenway Sports Group’s home track so we want to have a strong run this weekend. We have had some bad luck lately so we need to leave New Hampshire this weekend with a top-10 finish.”
