HARRISBURG, N.C. (February 7, 2024) – Winning the DAYTONA 500 was quite a boost for Ricky Stenhouse Jr.’s NASCAR Cup Series career.

Now that we’ve done it, we’re heading back as the reigning champion, and looking forward to doing it again. It was the best way I have found to start the season and it’s something I can get used to.”

“The pressure is high,” said Stenhouse Jr. “The DAYTONA 500 is a race that’s not won in the beginning but can be lost in the beginning. It’s all about trying to eliminate mistakes. You kind of run the race backwards. You try and set yourself up for the end. You are doing that the whole race. Once you make that last pit stop, the intensity ramps up. It’s you versus everyone else out on the racetrack. You are trying to get to the front, you are trying to lead laps and you are trying to make the blocks at the right time. It can be stressful, but it’s intense.”
