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.

Because he spun and flat spotted his tires in qualification, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. will have to drop to the back of the pack before the start of the Can Am 500 at Phoenix International Raceway.

He will give up his 27th-place spot on the grid, but that is from where he place-differential will be calculated. This makes him a less than attractive prospect.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. finished 10th in the First Data 500 to round out the top 10 and join teammate Trevor Bayne among the leaders.

The short track race was a slugfest and survival was very important. At the end of the race, however, it doesn’t matter how one gets there as much as the number of points earned.

Six playoff contenders were involved in a Big One crash with 20 laps remaining in the Alabam 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway. They included Martin Truex Jr., Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, Matt Kenseth, Jimmie Johnson, and Ricky Stenhouse Jr.

Jamie McMurray was involved in an earlier crash, so that put Busch, Kenseth, and Stenhouse outside the top 12 in points. Talladega continues to be pivotal in who advances and fails to advance in the championship chase.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. slapped the wall hard in final practice for the Pure Michigan 400 at Michigan International Speedway.

The damage is fairly significant. Even if he does not roll out a backup car, he is going to lose significant time in this session and that makes him a difficult pick for fantasy players.

Six weeks after scoring his first career victory, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. returned to Victory Lane at Daytona International Speedway in the Coke Zero 400.

The Coke Zero 400 was marked by carnage that eliminated most of the previous winners of the season. This mathematically locks him into the playoffs and makes him one of the favorites when the series returns to Talladega SuperSpeedway this fall.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. finished eighth in the FireKeepers Casino 400 at Michigan International Speedway.

Stenhouse was certainly a dark horse. He qualified 21st and had had a best finish on this track of only 15th. That came three years ago and in the intervening races he finished in the 20s.

The off-track couple Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Danica Patrick line up side by side for the Pocono 400 at Pocono Raceway.

If they do not give one another room entering turn one, it could provide an awkward ride home.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. is on the verge of finishing in the top 10 on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track. Four of his last five races on this track type ended in results of 16th or better.

Stenhouse came close last week in Kansas Speedway with an 11th-place result. That snapped a three-race streak of finishing in the top 10 this season, so he has two reasons to want to get back to the front.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. has finished in the top 15 in his last six races this season, including last week’s 11th-place finish on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile Kansas Speedway.

Stenhouse’s streak has come on a variety of tracks. He has top-10s on short tracks, a victory on the restrictor-plate, superspeedway of Talladega, and top-15s on the similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. That suggest he will finish in the high single digits or low-teens this week.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. took the lead on the white flag in the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway and held of a wild charge by Jamie McMurray and Kyle Busch to score his first career victory.

Stenhouse’s first win came in his 158th Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series start. He led the field to green from the pole, but faded in the middle stages of the race. We have been saying all year that Roush-Fenway Racing has turned their fortune around and this proves it.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. posted a speed of 191.547 mph and will lead the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway field to green.

That is Stenhouse’s second career pole. He last led the field to green at Atlanta Motor Speedway in 2013 in the Advocare 500. He finished 16th that day. Stenhouse’s best start at Talladega was a pair of sixths, both of which came in 2016. He finished 16th that spring and fifth in the fall.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. stayed out on old tires during the final pit stop at Richmond International Raceway and finished fourth in the Toyota Owners 400.

Stenhouse was the highest finisher of five drivers who gambled on old rubber. Notably, this is his fourth top-10 of the year and each of his strong runs have a connection with Richmond. He finished fourth at Phoenix and 10th at Martinsville Speedway. Both of those tracks are minimally banked and one-mile or less in length, like RIR. He finished ninth last week at Bristol Motor Speedway—another short track.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. was considered one of the top dark horses entering this week’s Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway. His ninth-place finish confirmed that status.

This was his fifth top-10 finish in his last seven attempts on the half-mile bullring and it made him one of the best values in the game. He will continue to be a good option this summer with a worst-ever finish of 21st in eight starts there.
