CONCORD, N.C. — Roush Fenway Racing will give Ricky Stenhouse Jr. another Sprint Cup start as he prepares to replace Matt Kenseth next season in NASCAR's top series.

The team said Thursday that Stenhouse will drive the No. 6 Ford next week at Charlotte. He's taking over No. 17 next season when Kenseth joins Joe Gibbs Racing.

The two will be on the track together at Charlotte, the first time that Best Buy has sponsored two cars in a single race. Stenhouse is last year's Nationwide champion.
