Ricky Stenhouse Jr.Will Race At Charlotte Cup Race


After making an appearance in the Daytona 500 and last Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Chase race at Dover International Speedway, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. will be making a return to the No.6 car before the year is over.

In a statement released by Roush Fenway Racing, Stenhouse is set to make another round in the No.6 car when the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series goes to Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Stenhouse mentioned that he is excited to get a head start on his relationship with Best Buy as he makes his way into the Cup Series for 2013.

“We are really excited to have Best Buy on board for next season,” said Stenhouse in the statement. “It’s awesome that we are getting a head start on that relationship this season and I can’t wait to have them ride along on the No.6 car at Charlotte.”

Stenhouse will have sponsoring from Best Buy for the October 13 race.  Along with sponsoring Stenhouse in his latest Cup race, Best Buy will be featured on another RFR ride with Matt Kenseth.

The race at Charlotte will be Stenhouse’s third Cup race in 2012 and his fourth cup start of his career. Stenhouse’s first Cup Series appearance and race was at Charlotte for the Coca-Cola 600 in the 2011 season.

Stenhouse will finish the 2012 NASCAR season racing in the NASCAR Nationwide Series where he currently sits in second place, nine points behind points later Elliott Sadler with five races to go.  Stenhouse is the defending 2011 Nationwide Champion.

For the 2013 season Stenhouse will drive the No.17 car replacing Kenseth as he departs Roush Fenway Racing.
