His other two wins came during the 2017 season. He first won the Geico 500 on May 7th at Talladega Superspeedway in Talladega, Alabama.

Almost two months later, he won again at the Coke Zero 400 on July 1st at Daytona.

Stenhouse Jr. drove a Chevrolet to Victory Lane. This has not happened since 2018 when Austin Dillon won.

In between, Toyota was the Manufacturer of FedEx-sponsored Denny Hamlin in 2019 and 2020. Then, Michael McDowell and Cindric drove a Ford manufactured vehicle to Victory Lane in 2021 and 2022.

Shell and Pennzoil-sponsored driver Joey Logano finished second. Following a late crash, Stenhouse Jr. was deemed the leader when the caution came out.
