• Stenhouse Jr. at Charlotte Motor Speedway
o Stenhouse Jr. made his first Sprint Cup start at Charlotte in 2011 in the famed No. 21 finishing an impressive 11th-place.
o The two-time Nationwide champion has four career Sprint Cup starts with an average starting position of 21.0 and finishing position of 18.2.

• The Car
o Chassis RK-899 is the same chassis that the No.17 team ran in Texas finishing 26th after his Ford was too tight on the final run.

• Fastenal
o Fastenal is proud to honor military service men and women, both active and retired, with a three-car tribute at the Coca Cola 600, to be held on Memorial Day Weekend.

Stenhouse Jr. on the Coca-Cola 600:

“We learned a lot of things in the Sprint Showdown that should help us this weekend. The Coca-Cola 600 is the longest race of our season so we will keep dialing in our Fastenal Ford as the race progresses into the night. Fastenal is running a patriotic scheme on all three Roush Fenway Fords this Memorial Day weekend. It would be awesome to get them in victory lane.”

Mike Kelley on the Coca-Cola 600:

“We didn’t run as well in the Sprint Showdown as we wanted to, but we learned a lot which should be beneficial this weekend. The 600 is our longest race of the season so we will keep adjusting on our Fastenal Ford to adapt to changing track conditions. The race starts while the sun is out and ends at night so we will have to make sure we don’t over adjust early on. Everybody wants to bring home the trophy at Charlotte because the track is in our backyard and our family and friends are in attendance.”
