Stenhouse on Phoenix:

“After our great finish at Daytona, I am looking forward to Phoenix and having NOS Energy Drink on our Ford. Phoenix is a tough track, but we had some solid runs there last year and never finished outside the top-10 in the Nationwide car. We are bringing a new chassis that we feel should handle and turn through the corners which is key at Phoenix. I feel confident that we can get another top-10 this weekend in our NOS Energy Drink Ford.”

Kelley on Phoenix:

“Ricky and I had some solid runs in the Nationwide series at Phoenix, so I look to continue that streak this weekend. We are bringing a new car that we tested in Nashville a few weeks ago. Phoenix is where the season really starts and we look to carry the momentum from Daytona into this weekend. I feel good about this weekend and feel confident that we will have a strong run in our NOS Energy Drink Ford.”
