Ricky Stenhouse Jr. didn’t have a really great car on Sunday at Dover, but a stroke of luck propelled him into the Round of 12. One of several drivers who hadn’t pitted during a round of green flag stops in the race’s first stage, Stenhouse caught a big break when the caution flag waved and trapped most of the field one lap down. As a result, Stenhouse finished fourth in the first stage and in so doing earned seven championship points — which later proved to be the difference between advancing and not advancing. Not surprisingly, Stenhouse — who ultimately finished 19th — was thankful for the well-timed caution, which supports the old adage than in racing it’s sometimes better to be lucky than good. “The feeling is lucky really,” Stenhouse said.
