Team: No. 17 Best Buy Ford Fusion Crew Chief: Scott Graves Primary Chassis: RK- 830 – last ran at Daytona- finished 12th Backup Chassis: RK-792 – Last ran during Daytona test Stenhouse Jr. at Talladega: The driver of the No. 17 Best Buy Ford will make his first NASCAR Sprint Cup series start at the 2.66-mile superspeedway. Stenhouse has three Nationwide starts at Talladega earning one top-five finish. Stenhouse earned a 12th-place finish in his first start of the season at the circuit’s other restrictor plate track, Daytona International Speedway. The Car: Chassis RK-830 is the same chassis that the No.17 team ran at Daytona finishing a respectable 12th. The backup Chassis RK-792 was a chassis that the No. 17 tested with at Daytona in the preseason. Best Buy: Best Buy joined Roush Fenway Racing and the No. 17 car in 2012. After many seasons in the sport, they got their first race win at the 2012 Daytona 500. Make sure to follow @BestBuy and use hashtag #BestBuy17 in 2013. Stenhouse Jr. on Talladega: “We had a decent run at Daytona at the start of the year so I feel that will carry on to Talladega. We had a really good Daytona tire test and learned some things that we feel will be valuable at Talladega. Our team feels confident going into this weekend but we just need a little luck on our side.” Scott Graves on Talladega: “We learned a few things during the Daytona tire test a few weeks ago that we feel will help us in Talladega. We are bringing the same car that we raced in Daytona so we know it has speed. There is always a multi-car wreck at Talladega and you just hope that you aren’t part of it. If we can stay out of trouble, I feel we will have a solid finish in our Best Buy Ford.”
