All-Roush Front Row in All-Star Qualifying at Charlotte
CONCORD, N.C. (May 18, 2018) – Ricky Stenhouse Jr. was second fastest and will start beside Kenseth on the front row of tomorrow night’s 80-lap All-Star event.
“Having both cars on the front row is a tribute to these guys,” said Kenseth, who won the 2004 All-Star race in Roush Fenway’s No. 17 Ford. “This was really more about the car and the team and of course the Roush Yates engines are great.”
“The guys brought a fast car and they were great on pit road,” added Kenseth. “Ricky (Stenhouse Jr.) was a huge help with the breaking zones and input on the laps, since we didn’t get any practice today with the rain. It’s great to be on front row with Ricky and looking forward to the race tomorrow.”
“It’s great having an all-Roush front row,” added Stenhouse. “It’s just a week into it, but Matt’s already been a great help to the team. I’m really looking forward to getting back out here and racing tomorrow night from the front.”
