NASCAR Superstar Ricky Stenhouse Jr To Run A Re Technologies Car At Mir

NASCAR superstar and hometown favorite, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., will return to Memphis International Raceway (MIR) and in a big way. The Olive Branch, Miss. native has entered the "Memphis 100 with Ricky Stenhouse Jr.". and will drive a USAC Silver Crown Series car for RE Technologies on Sunday, June 29.

Stenhouse Jr. is certainly no stranger to MIR as he started racing go-karts at the tri-oval at a young age. In 2003, the up-and-coming driver was named the Memphis Motorsports Park (now MIR) Rookie of the Year. The following year, a 17-year-old Stenhouse Jr. would make his USAC Series debut at the famed .75-mile facility. In 55 USAC Series starts, between National Midgets and the Silver Crown Series, he would amass seven wins, 19 top-five and 30 top-10 finishes.

His impressive resume caught the attention of NASCAR team owner, Jack Roush and in 2008 Stenhouse Jr. started his career with Roush Fenway Racing. He currently drives the No. 17 Ford Mustang in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and is in his second full-time season in NASCAR's elite series.

"I am really looking forward to racing at Memphis and driving the RE Technologies car," stated Ricky Stenhouse Jr. "I drove for Roger Johnson and Chris Santucci early in my career and they have helped me tremendously. The last time I raced a Silver Crown Series car on asphalt was in 2006 so it should be a lot of fun. This is my home track, where I first ran a go-kart so I'm looking forward to getting back there and racing again."

Stenhouse Jr. will join 2013 USAC Silver Crown Series champion Bobby East as well as Tracy Hines, A.J. Fike, Kody Swanson and several others in the "Memphis 100 with Ricky Stenhouse Jr". The points battle is heating up as Swanson and Hines are currently tied in first-place with 228 points after four races in the 2014 season. Bobby Santos is the most recent winner as he took home the trophy at Gateway Motorsports Park on June 14.

The last time Stenhouse Jr. competed in the Silver Crown Series was 2008 when he took fourth for car owner RE Technologies, who will field the car for him next weekend. RE Technologies has four Silver Crown victories with Stenhouse Jr. and Cameron Dodson.
