Ricky Stenhouse Jr. believes that a high number of different kinds of race tracks make NASCAR schedule special.
In less than a month NASCAR drivers raced at the dirt track, two short tracks, and a superspeedway, which was a significant change of conditions for the drivers. Ahead of the Cup Series race at Talladega, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. spoke about how difficult it was for the drivers to adapt to such circumstances.
“It’s something that we’re used to. I think the NASCAR schedule is very diverse. We go to so many different race tracks, we’ve had a couple of new ones this year that we go to. You could throw in concrete, dirt, asphalt, new asphalt, wore-out asphalt, smooth tracks, rough tracks. These all are different kinds of race tracks that we run on and I think that’s what’s fun about our schedule and about our sport,” Stenhouse Jr. told ASN Motorsports.
“Every week is different. Some notes apply – you can go from one 1.5-mile to another and your setups are totally different. And I think that’s what’s cool about this sport of NASCAR,” he added.
“I feel like all the tracks we go to are different and it makes drivers and teams stay on their toes to make sure that they’re ready,” the no.47 JTG Daugherty Racing driver said in the conclusion.
Ricky Stenhouse Jr. will start the NASCAR Cup Series race at Talladega from the 17th position.
