Last time at Richmond
With less than 40 laps remaining, a multi-car accident occurred in front of the No.17 Ford causing front end damage. After the red flag was lifted, Stenhouse brought his machine to pit-road for repair. The crew worked feverishly to repair the mangled machine over two pit stops and keeping the 2013 MENCS Rookie of the Year on the lead lap.
On the final green-white-checkered attempt, the Olive Branch, Miss. native lined up in the 18th position but when a car spun near the front Stenhouse checked up causing him to settle with a 19th-place finish.

Stenhouse Jr. on racing at Richmond:
“Our short track program has been strong this year so I’m looking forward to Richmond this weekend. Last year, you could run the bottom or the top groove so I expect it to be racy on Sunday. If we can execute on pit-road and keep our Fifth Third Ford up near the front then we should be able to leave Richmond with another top-10 finish. That’s our goal.”
