* The Driver...Ricky Stenhouse Jr. makes his first career NASCAR start at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Saturday.

* Now Appearing...Stenhouse will be signing autographs at two CitiFinancial branches in the Loudon area. On Thursday June 24th, he will be at 133 Loudon Road, Concord N.H. from 3:00 p.m. EDT -- 4:00 p.m. EDT and then he will appear at 171 Daniel Webster Highway, Belmont, N.H. from 4:00 p.m. EDT -- 5:00 p.m. EDT.

* Getting in on time...The No. 6 Roush Fenway Racing team sits 33rd in NASCAR Nationwide Series owner point standings after 15 races and must qualify on time at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. The top-30 teams are locked into the event.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. on racing at New Hampshire Motor Speedway:

"This weekend is another track that I have never raced on before, but I am looking forward to going to Loudon because I feel like it will be a good track for me and this CitiFinancial team. It's similar to places like Milwaukee and Phoenix where I have run well and have top-10 finishes. I plan on talking to my teammates, especially Matt (Kenseth), who has been successful in New Hampshire. I feel like we've got a little momentum now and we're coming to a stretch of tracks that we'll be able to run fast and get some good finishes for Roush Fenway Racing and CitiFinancial ."

Crew Chief Mike Kelley on racing at New Hampshire Motor Speedway:

"Loudon is a place where our organization has been to victory lane and is a place where I think Ricky (Stenhouse Jr.) and this CitiFinancial team is going to have a breakout race. Ricky has been good at places that are similar to this and we're taking the same car we had in Richmond where he was very fast at the end of the race. The competition will be steeper since it's a companion race with the Cup Series, so we'll have to step up our game and be ready as soon as we unload. We have to qualify on time but speed has not been a problem for us all year and I don't expect that to be any different this weekend in New Hampshire."
