NASCAR's Rickey Stenhouse Jr inks deals with 3 sponsors

  NASCAR's Rickey Stenhouse Jr inks deals with 3 sponsors Roush Fenway Racing has reached contract extensions with three of Ricky Stenhouse Jr.'s primary sponsors through 2021. Fastenal will remain the anchor sponsor and has been with the team since it paired with Carl Edwards in 2010. Stenhouse was partnered with Fastenal in 2015. Fifth Third Bank was on Stenhouse's car last year when he won his first two Cup races, at Talladega and at Daytona in July. The third company, SunnyD, was Stenhouse's sponsor at Bristol, his first top-10 finish of the season.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Kyle Petty had some advice for Stenhouse Wednesday on NASCAR America.

The first question posed to Earnhardt on Twitter (using the hashtag #WednesDale) in this episode concerned Stenhouse and the proper protocol for reaching out when a driver is involved in an incident.

“If he text messages any of these drivers, that just shows that he’s not truly remorseful.” Earnhardt said.

Before the age of cell phones, drivers would settle their differences at the end of race. Kyle Petty recalled a race in which he intentionally wrecked Dale Earnhardt Sr. after the Intimidator roughed him up at North Wilkesboro Speedway.

Afterward, Earnhardt approached Petty and asked what that was all about.

“I just got tired of your (expletive),” Petty said.

“I thought so,” Petty recalls Earnhardt saying. And that was that.

But in today’s age when drivers tend to go their separate ways after a race, technology takes over.

“In today’s world with technology and all that – if you’re gonna call a guy, call him the next day,” Dale Earnhardt Jr. said.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr . was the last car to qualify Saturday, and he bumped Dale Earnhardt Jr . - - NASCAR and Talladega's favorite son -- to second in the GEICO 500 starting lineup.

“If you wait until the next race weekend, the guy thinks that you’re not going to bring it up,” allowing the incident to fester.

After initiating an accident in 2009 by spinning Brian Vickers at Daytona, Earnhardt knew that it would take a while to rebuild trust among the other drivers.

“For Ricky, going forward, he needs to try to eliminate this from his next plate race,” Earnhardt said. “When he goes to Talladega later in the season, try not to continue this trend. Put a little space between this race and the next time you want to do something stupid. That’s what I always tried to do. If I screwed up, I’d lay low for a while.”
