Stenhouse signs multiyear deal to drive for JTG Daugherty

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Ricky Stenhouse Jr. has signed a multiyear deal to drive for JTG Daugherty Racing, essentially completing a swap of drivers with Roush Fenway Racing after that team announced Chris Buescher wouldn’t return next season.

The 32-year-old Stenhouse was notified last month that he would be replaced by Buescher in the No. 17 Ford after a decade with Roush Fenway Racing. Now, Stenhouse will take Buescher’s ride and join Ryan Preece in a two-car effort that JTG Daugherty announced Wednesday.

Stenhouse, a two-time Xfinity champion, has a pair of wins along with 15 top-5 finishes in 251 career starts at the Cup Series level. But he has made the playoffs only once in the past seven seasons.

Stenhouse was in contention to win Monday’s rain-delayed race at Talladega before finishing ninth and is now headed to Kansas Speedway, where he has three top-5 finishes in 13 career starts.
