Ricky Stenhouse on the Daytona 500: “I’m ready to get back racing. The Daytona 500 race is important for our No. 17 team because it gives you momentum at the start of the season. The No. 17 Best Buy Ford was fast in qualifying and practice, but we need a tad more speed in the draft. The Duels will let us know how our Ford will handle in the draft. I hope we can roll Matt’s Best Buy Ford out of the Daytona USA and roll ours in.” Crew chief Scott Graves on the Daytona 500: “We need a solid finish in the Daytona 500, as it sets the tone for the season. We will rely on our teammates who ran in the Unlimited to see how the Fords’ handle in the draft. Our Best Buy Ford has been fast on single-car runs, but we need a touch of speed in the draft. So much can happen at Daytona; we need a strong finish in the Duels to start up front in the 500 and hopefully stay out of trouble.” Team: No. 17 Best Buy Ford Fusion Crew Chief:  Scott Graves Primary Chassis: RK- 830 – new chassis Backup Chassis: RK-792 – Last ran during Daytona test -Roush Fenway Racing PR
