Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. will take the wheel of the #6 Rancher’s Reserve Ford Mustang this weekend at the Chicagoland Speedway. The NASCAR Nationwide Series is there for the STP 300 and Stenhouse will be using chassis RK-763 as his primary, a new Nationwide chassis, and bringing with him RK-672 as the backup, last time out won at Dover in 2011.

So far in 2012, Ricky has three wins, nine top-five, and 12 top-ten.

Stenhouse is currently third in the NASACAR Nationwide point standings; 16 points behind leader Elliott Sadler.

Chicagoland, Stenhouse will pilot the No. 6 Rancher’s Reserve/Dominick’s Ford Mustang.

Stenhouse has completed 602 of 603(99.8%) laps at Chicagoland Speedway.

Stenhouse has an average starting position of 6.7 and an average finishing position of 13.7 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. on Chicagoland: “Chicagoland is a great track. I really enjoy racing there. The track is rough which I like. Our 1.5-mile track program has been stout this year. We have gained in the past couple of weeks so we need another strong run this weekend. Hopefully we can get a win in our No. 6 Rancher’s Reserve Ford and win the $100,000 Dash4Cash incentive.”

Crew chief Mike Kelley on Chicagoland: “We’ve had a lot of success this year on the 1.5-mile race tracks. This type of track really suits Ricky’s driving style. The track is rough so it can be tough on your tires. We’ve gained in the championship points each week so we need another solid finish. If we can execute on pit-road, I am confident that we can get this Ford back to victory lane and our fourth victory of the season.”
