Team: No. 17 Zest Ford Fusion Crew Chief: Scott Graves Primary Chassis: RK- 832 – last ran at Phoenix- finished 16th Backup Chassis: RK-801 – chassis for the No. 99 in 2012 Stenhouse at Richmond: Stenhouse will make his first Sprint Cup career start at Richmond this weekend. Stenhouse has six Nationwide career starts at Richmond, earning four top-five and four top-10 finishes. Stenhouse is currently 18th in the Sprint Cup standings;115 points behind the leader. The Car: Chassis RK-832 is the same chassis that the No.17 team ran at Phoenix International Raceway finishing a respectable 16th. This chassis ran numerous times by the No. 99 team in 2012. The backup Chassis RK-801 was a chassis that the No. 99 ran numerous times in 2012. It has been a backup at Martinsville, Bristol, and Phoenix so far this season. Zest: High Ridge Brands is the name of the parent company/private equity firm. Zest’s first year in NASCAR was 2012 when they sponsored the No. 17 Ford. Stenhouse on Richmond: “We are coming off a weekend where we led laps and ran near the front so we need to carry that momentum into this weekend. Richmond is the typical short track racing which a lot of fun. We will work on getting our No. 17 Zest Ford to turn in the center for good drive off which is important. We keep getting closer to the top-10 each week so hopefully we can get our first top-10 finish this weekend.” Scott Graves on Richmond: “Last weekend was a great weekend for our No. 17 team. We are a new team but I think we are starting to understand what Ricky is looking for in the car and our communication is getting better. It is important at Richmond to have a good handling race car that has forward drive. If we can stay up front, stay out of trouble, and execute on pit-road, I think we will get our first top-10 this season.”
