As soon as Roush Fenway Racing owner Jack Roush secures sponsorship for his #6 Ford, he’s ready to bring the car back to the Sprint Cup Series with Ricky Stenhouse Jr. as the driver. The #6 has been in mothballs since Stenhouse drove it in the season-opening Daytona 500. “We’ve got the decal for the top of the roof on that 6 car all organized for Ricky,” Roush said Friday night, after Stenhouse won the O’Reilly Auto Parts 300 Nationwide Series race at Texas. “As soon as I can find sponsorship for it, he’s good to go. The highest priority we have for this year in the meantime is to defend (Stenhouse’s) championship in the Nationwide series but hopefully we can find sponsorship and run the 6 car with him next year — and we will run some races with him in the 6 Cup car before this year is over.”
This is very good news!
