On the Car
Fastenal is currently in its eighth season as a primary partner in the MENCS 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.
Stenhouse Jr. on racing at Michigan:
“I’m looking forward to this weekend at Michigan. We have made some improvements to our Fastenal Ford since the last time we raced there. This is the home track for Ford and Roush Industries so we always want to perform well in their backyards. Jack has had a lot of success at Michigan. Last weekend at Watkins Glen, we executed really so looking to carry that over to this weekend. I think if we can have another mistake free weekend, then we should leave Michigan with a solid finish.”
