Ricky Stenhouse Jr. wants to keep rolling along after his career-best third-place finish in Daytona last weekend.

Stenhouse Jr. will be making his first career NASCAR start at Chicagoland Speedway on Friday, driving the No. 6 CitiFinancial Ford Fusion for Roush Fenway Racing. The rookie has one career ARCA start at Chicagoland Speedway, finishing second in a 2008 race.

Stenhouse Jr. hopes he can do even better this time around.

"I am really looking forward to going to Chicago this weekend," Stenhouse Jr. said. "I feel like we’ve got some good momentum. We led a lot of laps in the ARCA car back in 2008 at Chicago so I am pretty familiar with the track."
