Stenhouse, Jr. on racing at Chicagoland Speedway: “I really enjoy racing at Chicagoland. The track is rough which I like. Our 1.5-mile track program has been stout this year. Earlier this year, we sat on the pole and finished second. After leading 135 laps, we felt like we let that race slip away so we are looking to redeem ourselves this weekend. We currently sit one point out of the lead in the championship battle so we need a strong finish in our No. 6 Blue Bird Ford.”

Crew chief Mike Kelley on racing at Chicagoland Speedway: “We’ve shined this year on the 1.5-mile race tracks. Earlier this year, we dominated the race at Chicagoland but a late caution spoiled our bid for the win. We’re bringing back the same car so we know our Ford will be stout. These final eight races we have to bring our ‘A game’. If we execute on pit-road and keep making the right adjustments during the race, I feel confident we can get this No. 6 Blue Bird Ford into victory lane.”

FAST FACTS: So far in 2012, Ricky has four wins, 15 top-five, and 19 top-ten finishes.

Stenhouse is currently second in the NASCAR Nationwide point standings; 1 point behind leader Elliott Sadler.

At Chicagoland, Stenhouse will pilot the No. 6 Blue Bird Ford Mustang.

Stenhouse has completed 803 of 804 (99.9%) laps at Chicagoland Speedway.

Stenhouse has an average starting position of 5.2 and an average finishing position of 10.8 at Chicago.
