Stenhouse Jr. To Appear on Tonight’s Episode of American Ninja Warrior
CONCORD, N.C. (July 10, 2017) – After earning his first career Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series victory at Talladega SuperSpeedway, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. traveled to Cleveland the following Monday to take another shot at the challenging obstacle course of NBC’s hit show American Ninja Warrior. Tune in to NBC tonight at 8 p.m. ET to see how the two-time NASCAR champion performed on the demanding course.
“After falling off the log roll last year I wanted to come back and try again,” said Stenhouse. “When I first got to the course and saw that the log roll was again one of the obstacles, I got a little nervous. This year was really cool since Ryan Blaney was there running as well. It was a great time, so make sure to tune in to see how we did.”
Last year, Stenhouse competed in the Indianapolis qualifiers alongside three IndyCar Racing League drivers, but his run was cut short after falling off the log roll.
Three NASCAR drivers participated in this season’s American Ninja Warrior. Ben Kennedy was part of the Daytona Beach qualifiers, while Blaney and Stenhouse participated in the Cleveland qualifiers.
