When the final green waved setting up a 30-lap shootout, Stenhouse lined up in the 22nd position and was able to gain three positions in the closing laps to take the checkered flag on the lead lap in the 19th position.

Stenhouse Jr. on racing at Kansas:

 

“Kansas is a fast, smooth track and is a lot of fun to race at night. This has been a great week for our entire organization so we are looking forward to getting back on track on Friday. Every week our cars are showing speed right off the truck. We have GoBowling on our car this weekend so hopefully the GoBowling Ford will be in victory lane at the end of the GoBowling 400.”
