Homestead, Nov. 18, 2012: Ricky Stenhouse Jr. turned in a sixth-place finish in Saturdaynight’s Nationwide Series finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway to become Roush Fenway’s first back-to-back NASCAR Champion. Stenhouse scored his second Nationwide Series championship in as many seasons, taking home the crown by 23 points.

“I think this is a bigger one,” said Stenhouse. “The performance was a lot better. It’s always special having that first championship, but when you can back it up and go out the next season and be the car to beat - week in and week out - that makes it really special.”
