After scoring his career best Sprint Cup series finish at Bristol Motor Speedway in the spring, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. led the Roush Fenway Racing trio with a solid sixth-place finish in Saturday night’s IRWIN Tools Night Race.
“We didn’t start off very good but Mike (Kelley) made a lot of changes,” Stenhouse said. “Our pit crew did an awesome job on pit road and gave me some fast pit stops, and Mike (Kelley) made a good call to take the wave around to get back on the lead lap and then the caution came out quick and we were able to make our car a little bit better. We’ve got a lot of work to do, but definitely really pleased with how we finished with how the car drove, so we’ll get it better and we’ll keep working on it.
Bristol is a lot of fun. When you’re able to turn your car all over the place, I was able to run in on the top, turn and drive across the bottom and make up a lot of ground and pass some cars. That felt really good to pass some cars. It was a great night.“
