Ricky Stenhouse Jr in the No.47 Kroger Chevrolet for JTG Daugherty Racing car says he is looking forward to getting back in the car when the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series returns to Darlington Raceway on Wednesday after crashing out on lap 1 of the Real Heroes 400 as NASCAR became the first major US sport to return to real racing after the COVID 19 outbreak.
Speaking following the accident Stenhouse Jr said:
Not really sure what to say there about our first lap, first corner. Pretty embarrassing for myself, our team. “My crew guys, I feel awful for them. They put a lot of hard work into getting our cars ready and coming all the way down here to Darlington. I put myself in a bad spot there. The 32 (Corey LaJoie) looked like he had to check up and I put myself on the inside of him. Just put ourselves in a bad spot and ended our race before it ever started. I’m looking forward to getting back here on Wednesday to try and put a better run together, and put this behind us.
