This weekend at Dover NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr will participate in both the Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series events. Ranger Reserve and Safeway will sponsor the No. 6 car in each race. Currently Stenhouse Jr is four points behind Elliott Sadler as he attempts to win back to back Nationwide Series titles. Last weekend at New Hampshire he made contact with a car on pit road and later with the wall as he saw Sadler over take him for the points lead. Six races remain in the Nationwide Series season. This will be the second Cup Series start of the season for Stenhouse. He raced at the season opening Daytona 500 finishing 21st. Next season he will take over the No. 17 Cup Series car at Roush Fenway Racing as Matt Kenseth moves to Joe Gibbs Racing. Stenhouse made one Cup start in 2011 when he finished 11th in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte while subbing for Trevor Bayne in the No. 21 car for the Wood Brothers.
