Ricky Stenhouse Jr. lined up on the outside of the front row beside teammate Matt Kenseth but an ill-handling machine forced him to settle with an 11th-place finish in Saturday night’s Monster Energy All-Star race.

Stenhouse Jr. on racing in the All-Star Race:
“When he hit the track on Friday, this will be the first time any of us have ran this new aero package. Monster Energy always does a great job promoting this event and the pre-race show is always a fan favorite. We have to race our way in or rely on the fan vote. Our cars have been fast lately so I think we have a good shot at racing our way in and hopefully can put on a good show in the All-Star race.”
