Stenhouse on the Sprint Unlimited:

“I can’t wait to get to Daytona. Our No. 17 team has been working really hard this off-season and I feel that we have confidence going into this 2014 season. The Sprint Unlimited will definitely be exciting as all the drivers are ready to get the season started. It’s a non-points race so we will definitely take some chances and hopefully get our Nationwide Insurance Ford in the historical victory lane at Daytona.”

Kelley on the Sprint Unlimited:

“I’m really excited to be back with Ricky and to get the season started. The Sprint Unlimited is a great non-points race that will allow us to work out any kinks as a new team before the big race, the Daytona 500. Everyone wants to win at historical Daytona. We’re bringing a fast Ford Fusion so hopefully we can get Nationwide Insurance into victory lane for their first Cup race this season.”
