Ricky Stenhouse Jr. will race chassis RK-899 this week at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. It was last used at Charlotte in May.

Stenhouse finished only 26th in the Coke 600 and was never in contention for a good finish. In the 400 laps that made the distance that evening, he slipped into the top 15 for only a single circuit.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. finished 40th in the STP 500 at Martinsville this spring, but he has gotten progressively better in every flat track races since then.

Last week’s ninth-place finish on the flat New Hampshire Motor Speedway was only his second top-10 on an unrestricted oval this season so it is unlikely that he will finish that well again. With some luck he could finish in the top 15, however, and that could make him a decent value under the right circumstances.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. is gaining skill maneuvering through traffic. All seven of his top-20 finishes this year came after he qualified 21st or worse.

On the other hand, Stenhouse has qualified among the top 20 only three times, so there is not a lot of data to study when he rolls off the grid with the leaders. If this team can work out their problems in time trials—and if Roush-Fenway Racing can gain some of the horsepower displayed by their Ford colleagues at Penske Racing—Stenhouse will like be a better value later in the year on unrestricted, intermediate speedways.

When he crossed under the checkers ninth in the Camping World RV Sales 301, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. scored his first top-10 in the last nine races and his first such finish on an unrestricted oval since week four of the 2014 season at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Roush-Fenway Racing is not known for their strength on short, flat tracks, but Stenhouse hovered around the 10th-place mark for much of the final segment of the race. In the closing laps, he managed to pass the Hendrick Motorsports teammates Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Kasey Kahne, which should put him on fantasy players’ radar screens the next time the series rolls into New Hampshire.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. got off to a strong start on short, flat tracks this year with an 18th at Phoenix, but his latest two efforts at Martinsville and Richmond have both been outside the top 35.

Stenhouse will be difficult to handicap this week because of inconsistent performances on this track type last year as well as in 2014. He scored a 10th at Richmond and a 12th at Phoenix in 2013, but had several results outside the top 20 that will minimize his appeal.

In only his second career Sprint Cup start at the 1.99-mile 11-turn Sonoma road course, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. was running solidly in the top-20 before being involved in two accidents.

He started in the 24th-place and quickly finessed his EcoPower Ford inside the top-20 by lap 21 and was steadily marching his way up through the field. A little over half way, a car’s contact with the No. 17 Ford sent the machine spinning. On lap 90, the No. 55 machine made contact with Stenhouse sending the machine spinning once again.
