Ricky Stenhouse Jr. finished fourth in the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway.

That was Stenhouse’s fourth top-five in the last nine races on this track. He challenged for the lead briefly in the closing laps when he lined up behind Kyle Larson on the outside of row two. This was his season high, but not a career best at Bristol; Stenhouse finished second there in twice – most recently in fall 2016.
Apr 16 - 6:09 PM

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. posted the quickest 20-lap average in Saturday morning’s practice at Bristol Motor Speedway with an average time of 15.26.

Stenhouse’s fastest lap was 14.91, so this shows considerable drop off and will make the tire game interesting in Sunday’s race. Drivers cannot afford to pit too soon or they run the risk of losing a lap, but anyone willing to gamble will make up significant time.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. has been both consistent and strong at Bristol Motor Speedway with nine of his eight top-10 resulting finishes of 18th or better.

Most importantly, Stenhouse has a pair of runner-up finishes on this track – most recently in fall 2016 when he finished behind Kevin Harvick.
Apr 13 - 12:42 PM

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. slapped the wall hard with 15 minutes remaining in the second practice for the O'Reilly 500 and will have to roll out a backup car.

This is the third time this year that Stenhouse will have to go to a backup and it hurts his status as a dark horse. He will have to give up his 26th starting position to fall to the back at the start of the race.

In six starts this year, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. has lost place-differential points on five occasions.

With an average finish of 22.8 and an average start of 14.0, Stenhouse is costing nearly nine points per race. It is even worse if one takes out his 29th-place qualification at Ingenuity Sun Media Raceway (Phoenix). That makes him a risky proposition until he begins to contend for top-10 finishes. Stenhouse’s best finish was a 14th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway after starting seventh.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. got up out of the groove in turn three at Martinsville Speedway in final practice for the STP 500, wheel hopped, and slammed the wall. He will have to roll out a backup car for Sunday’s race.

The team has time to prepare for qualification if the weather holds off, but they may be routing for the session to be canceled. Stenhouse was one of our dark horses this week based on two 10th-place finishes on this bullring last year.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. finished 10th in both Martinsville races last year after starting in the mid-20s.

Stenhouse was one of the drivers to watch in this week’s Rotoworld NASCAR Fantasy Live preview, but he does represent a significant risk. Last year’s pair of 10th-place finishes are his only top-10s in 10 starts on this track and he has only one more top-15. Those three events are the only times he has finished on the lead lap. In five other starts, he sustained crash damage.
Mar 21 - 1:41 PM

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. experienced mechanical problems (possibly brakes) on his first lap in practice for the TicketGuardian 500 at ISM Raceway and made serious contact with the wall. He will be forced to roll out a backup car.

With a much better record on short, flat tracks than his teammate Trevor Bayne, Stenhouse was Roush-Fenway Racing’s best hope. This will set the team behind and move Fantasy NASCAR owners’ decision to Saturday.
Mar 9 - 12:59 PM

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. swept the top 10 at Phoenix International Raceway last year with a fourth in the spring and eighth in the fall.

Those were two of five top-10s on short, flat tracks in 2017. Stenhouse also earned another pair of top-15s and a worst result of 19th in eight races. He may very well be one of this week’s top dark horses for players in need of a bargain.
Mar 7 - 5:47 PM

On Friday afternoon, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. posted the fastest single lap of the first practice session for the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway with a speed of 186.384 mph.

Stenhouse’s fast lap came in the final minutes of practice when most drivers think the track was getting slicker. This puts him at the forefront of most fantasy players’ minds for a potential pole-winning run. Stenhouse has one previous pole on this track, which came in his rookie season of 2013. He finished 16th in that race.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. has only one top-10 on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track in his last 43 starts, but he should be closing in on another.

Last year, Stenhouse came close on seven occasions with top-15 finishes that included a 13th in the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 and a 12th at Texas Motor Speedway in the most recent race on this track type. He is looking for redemption after last week’s disappointing finish in the Daytona 500 and will be highly motivated to run well.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr finished second to William Byron in the second Saturday practice for next Sunday’s Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway (DIS).

Stenhouse showed consistency all day Saturday in practice for both the Advance Auto Parts Clash the Daytona 500, finishing third, eighth, and second. Stenhouse held the second fastest lap of the day as the second practice wrapped up, his 44.632 lap was just 0.007 behind practice leader William Byron. Stenhouse is the most recent winner at Daytona when he won his second Super Speedway race in a row during the 2017 Coke Zero 400. His past triumph on the track and his speed this weekend will make him one to watch as Speedweeks continue.
Feb 10 - 10:07 PM

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. was the fastest Ford driver and the eighth fastest overall in Saturday’s first practice for Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway (DIS).

Stenhouse Jr. showed consistency between his speed in practice for The Advance Auto Parts Clash (The Clash) and the first practice for the Daytona 500. Stenhouse’s fastest lap in first practice was 46.052 as he was not quite able to catch up to his 45.111 pace set in The Clash practice.
Feb 10 - 4:52 PM

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. climbed from 27th to eighth in the Can Am 500 at Phoenix International Raceway and that made him one of the week’s best values in fantasy NASCAR.

Short flat tracks are not courses on which Roush-Fenway Racing typically excels, so that means Stenhouse was flying under the radar.
