    FORT WORTH, TX - APRIL 13: Ricky Stenhouse Jr., driver of the #6 Pure Michigan Ford, answers questions after winning the NASCAR Nationwide Series O'Reilly Auto Parts 300 at Texas Motor Speedway on April 13, 2012 in Fort Worth, Texas.

    Ricky Stenhouse Jr. regained the lead with 23 laps to go when he charged past Austin Dillon, then held on after Friday night's final restart to give Roush Fenway its fourth consecutive NASCAR Nationwide victory at Texas.

    After the restart with six laps left, Stenhouse pushed out in front before Denny Hamlin came from behind to get side-by-side at the start-finish line.  Stenhouse was ahead by only .001 seconds after that first lap, before pulling away for his second victory this season.

    It was the fourth career victory for the defending series champion.  Trevor Bayne, who won for Roush in Texas last November, wasn't in the race since the team didn't enter the No. 60 car because of a lack of sponsorship.
