Ricky Stenhouse to have Best Buy sponsorship at Charlotte

The No. 6 car of Ricky Stenhouse Jr will have the colors of Best Buy on it when it takes to the track for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway next weekend. Stenhouse will move up to the Sprint Cup level next season and assume the seat of the No. 17 Ford Fusion currently driven by Matt Kenseth.

Kenseth will also have the Best Buy colors on his car marking the first time that the company has sponsored two cars in one race. It will be the third start at the Cup level for Stenhouse this season and the fourth of his career.

Team owner Jack Roush said he would consider running Stenhouse in additional Cup races if he thought it would help him win the NASCAR Nationwide Series Championship for a second consecutive season.

Stenhouse was part of a 2013 car test at Talladega on Wednesday.

Kenseth will move to the No. 20 Toyota Camry of Joe Gibbs Racing in 2013. His car will be sponsored by Home Depot and Dollar General.
