Stenhouse Jr. on racing at Kentucky:

“I’m looking forward to Kentucky and racing the new aeropackage. I think the cars will be able to move around more which should make the racing better. We tested something similar last year and I really liked that set-up. I always like racing at night so hopefully we will have a strong run this weekend in our Fifth Third Bank Ford.”

Nick Sandler on racing at Kentucky:

“We aren’t really sure what to expect with the new aeropackage until we get on track tomorrow. Ricky tested something similar in Michigan last year and seemed to really like this change. Kentucky should be an exciting race because of the unknowns and these new changes will put all the teams on a level playing ground.”
