NASCAR Cup Series driver Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. partnered with Richard Marshall in 2017 to form Stenhouse Jr. Marshall Racing (SJMR). The team would run a full schedule in it’s inaugural season with veteran drivers Joey Saldana and Jac Haudenschild behind the wheel. By season’s end, SJMR would accumulate six top-five and 23 top-10 finishes while growing the team for 2018.
Heading into their first full-time season on the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series tour in 2018, SJMR tabbed 2017 World of Outlaws Rookie of the Year Sheldon Haudenschild as the driver of the No. 17 NOS Energy car as they prepared to compete for the series championship.
Haudenschild and team started the off the season on a tear by winning three of first eight races, and consistently competing for feature wins. SJMR would go on to be awarded the prestigious Best Appearing Car Award at the Knoxville Nationals and would finish the season with winning five races and also earning 18 top-five and 36 top-10 finishes.
NOS Energy will return to the No. 17 car in 2019 as Haudenschild and team vie for their first World of Outlaws championship.
