On the Car

Fastenal is currently in its sixth season as a primary partner in the MENCS for Roush Fenway. They spent three years on the No. 99 before jumping over to the No. 17 entry, and were the primary partner on the No. 60 XFINITY team that captured the owner’s championship in 2011.

Next weekend, Fastenal will serve as the primary of the No. 17 machine at Auto Club Speedway.


Stenhouse Jr. on racing at Phoenix:

Image result for Ricky Stenhouse Jr 2017“Phoenix is a tough one-mile track. We participated in the February test session, which we think we learned some things. Last year we had some issues with our brakes overheating, but we think we have those issues resolved. Generally, Phoenix is a good track for us. We will keep working on our Fastenal Ford throughout the race and hopefully leave Phoenix with a solid finish.”
