Stenhouse at Indianapolis: Stenhouse has one Nationwide career start at the historical track, earning a ninth-place finish last year. o Stenhouse is currently 21st in the point standings; 47 points out of 10th place. The Car: Chassis RK-860 is a new chassis for the No. 17 team. Ford: Delivering up to 20 percent better fuel economy than conventional engines, EcoBoost uses smaller overall size combined with turbocharging and gasoline direct injection to bring customers the power they want and the fuel economy they need. Stenhouse on racing at Indianapolis: “I’m looking forward to my first Cup start at Indy. A win at Indy is something every driver dreams about. We ran there last year for the first time in the Nationwide series and finished ninth after running in the top-10 for most of the day. Track position is crucial at Indy so we will have to stay up front and work on pit strategy. I’m confident we can earn a top-10 finish this weekend in our Ford Ecoboost Fusion.” Crew chief Scott Graves on racing at Indianapolis: “It would be awesome to get our first top-10 at Indy, a track with so much history. Track position is key because it is so hard to pass. Qualifying on Saturday is super important so we will work hard on Friday to get our Ford Ecoboost Fusion dialed in for qualifying on Saturday. Ricky has only raced at Indy once so there will be a learning curve but I feel confident that we can have a strong performance at Indy.” -Roush Fenway Racing PR
