Last time at Dover
Steadily running in the top-10, the Olive Branch, Miss. native reported that his Ford was gradually getting tighter throughout the run. After losing a few positions due to the tightness, the right front tire blew sending the No. 17 Ford hard into the outside wall. After multiple pit-stops, Stenhouse returned to the track in the 25th position. Something was still amiss according to Stenhouse forcing him to take the first green checkered in the 30th position.

Stenhouse Jr. on racing at Dover:
“Dover is a unique, challenging track just by the way you drive up out of the corners close to the wall. Earlier this year, our No. 17 Ford was fast but we blew a right front while running in the top 10. Our short track program has been improving so I’m looking forward to Dover this weekend. Our goal for the final seven races is to have solid finishes and end the season strong.”
