Ricky Stenhouse Jr. Michigan Post-Race Interview

Michigan International Speedway

RICKY STENHOUSE JR., No. 6 Tender Ridge Ford Mustang (Finished 2nd)

YOU HAD YOUR OPPORTUNITIES OUT THERE TODAY UNTIL YOUR TEAMMATE GOT YOU AT THE END AND YOU ARE NOW THE NEW POINTS LEADER. “Our Tender Ridge Mustang was really fast for about 15 laps and then we got really tight. On that last restart I just tried to get as far out there as we could and didn’t quite get far enough. We just got too tight. Carl caught us. It was a good day for us. We definitely wanted one more spot. I gave it everything it had, we just got too tight.”

DO YOU TAKE ANY CONSOLATION WALKING OUT OF HERE WITH THE BEST POINTS DAY AND THE POINTS LEAD? “I guess that is a good thing for us for sure for the championship but it doesn’t do anything for us not winning. I feel like earlier in the year we gave some wins away, definitely some top-fives. We are right there where we need to be we just have to cap it off. We have to get a little bit better. I think Carl is a little better at practice, getting his car where it needs to be. It takes us a little while to get it going throughout the race. That is something I have to do, to get better in practice. It is frustrating running second but to have Ford run one, two up here in Michigan is a good deal for us.”
