Stenhouse, Jr. on racing at Chicagoland Speedway:
“Chicagoland is a great track. I really enjoy racing there. The track is rough which I like. Our 1.5-mile track program has been stout this year. We have gained in the past couple of weeks so we need another strong run this weekend. Hopefully we can get a win in our No. 6 Rancher’s Reserve Ford and win the $100,000 Dash4Cash incentive.”
Crew chief Mike Kelley on racing at Chicagoland Speedway:
“We’ve had a lot of success this year on the 1.5-mile race tracks. This type of track really suits Ricky’s driving style. The track is rough so it can be tough on your tires. We’ve gained in the championship points each week so we need another solid finish. If we can execute on pit-road, I am confident that we can get this Ford back to victory lane and our fourth victory of the season.”
