Stenhouse Jr. on racing at Phoenix:
“I always look forward to this west coast swing. I’m really proud of our team and the run we had last weekend at Vegas. Phoenix is a tough one-mile track but has been a good track for us in the past. We had some misfortune there last year. Track position is crucial. So far this year, we have qualified in the top-10 so hopefully we can keep that string alive. If we can execute on pit-road and not make any mistakes, then we should be able to leave Phoenix with another solid finish.”
