PLAYERS: Ricky Stenhouse
Team: No. 17 Best Buy Ford Fusion Crew Chief: Scott Graves Primary Chassis: RK- 820 – last raced at Kansas– finished 11th. Backup Chassis: RK-811 – chassis raced numerous times by No. 99 in 2012.

Stenhouse Jr. on the FedEx 400: “I am really looking forward to Dover. We raced there in the fall last year and learned a lot. This is one of the races that we have notes for this season. Dover is a tough hence the nickname ‘Monster Mile’. The turns are unique because of the way you drive up out of them. We’ve been getting better each week but still have some work to do. I think if we can qualify well and stay out of trouble then we should get a solid finish this weekend at Dover.” Scott Graves on the FedEx 400: “Dover is a unique concrete track that is tough on our cars. Since we raced there last year, we do have notes to fall back on to help us leading into the weekend. Track position is crucial so the key is to stay up front and execute on pit-road. We have been steadily improving each week so I think Dover should be a good weekend for our Best Buy Ford.”
