Stenhouse at Homestead-Miami Speedway
Stenhouse has four NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) starts at Homestead-Miami Speedway (HMS) with an average starting position of 18.5 and average finishing position of 26.2.
In the 2016 NSCS season, Stenhouse Jr. has scored four top-five and six top-10 finishes.
Last Year at Homestead
After getting into the wall early on and sustaining damage from a multi-car accident, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. overcame adversity, driving his Ford to a 22nd-place finish.
On the Car
Fastenal is currently in its fifth season as a primary partner in the NSCS for Roush Fenway. They spent three years on the No. 99 before jumping over to the No. 17 entry, and were the primary partner on the No. 60 XFINITY team that captured the owner’s championship in 2011.
Mike Kelley, who was the crew chief for both of Stenhouse’s XFINITY championships and now serves as the car chief, is from St. Petersburg, Florida.
Stenhouse Jr. on racing at Homestead:
“I always look forward to racing at Homestead. The Roush Fenway Racing organization has been working really hard on our intermediate program. We need to have a strong race this weekend and carry that momentum into the off-season.”
Nick Sandler on racing at Homestead:
“We’ve had our ups and downs on the intermediate tracks this year. We’ve been working really hard on our program so I’m looking forward to this weekend. With the race starting during the day and ending at night, you have to be sure not to over adjust on your car. I think if we can stay out of trouble and progressively make our car better throughout the race then we should leave Homestead with a solid finish.”
