Stenhouse Jr. on racing at Richmond:
“We had some misfortune at Bristol, but I thought overall our Ford was decent last weekend so I’m looking forward to Richmond. Richmond has been a decent track for us in the past so hopefully we can get back on track this weekend. We practice during the day but race at night so that can be struggle sometimes with handling. We will keep adjusting on our Fifth Third Ford as the track changes and hopefully leave Richmond with a top-10 finish.”
