 SPARTA, Ky. (AP) - Ricky Stenhouse Jr. just couldn't wait.
Despite being sworn to secrecy, he just had to tell someone the night before the announcement that Roush Fenway Racing would be moving him into Matt Kenseth's spot when Kenseth leaves after the season.
He told his parents. But he said they didn't really grasp the immensity of what had just happened for their son.
A day later, they sure did. It was huge news throughout NASCAR that Stenhouse, the defending Nationwide Series champion, would be moving up to the Sprint Cup Series.
Stenhouse says he's still in shock over his big break. He knows he has a lot to learn, but is confident that he can do more than just compete at the next level next year.
