Columbia, SC (WLTX) --- If you drove by the USC practice fields Tuesday afternoon, you saw the teal colors of the #17 Zest Ford Fusion driven by Sprint Cup rookie Ricky Stenhouse, Jr.

Stenhouse and officials from Bojangles and the Darlington Raceway were in town to promote next month's Sprint Cup race the Track Too Tough To Tame.

The two-time defending Nationwide Series champion, Stenhouse is a full-time driver in the Cup series for Roush-Fenway Racing and next month, he will compete in his first race at Darlington on NASCAR's top series.

Stenhouse also had a chance to meet Jadeveon Clowney and the two had a brief conversation as Clowney entered practice in street clothes. Defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward says Clowney may miss the rest of spring with a neck sprain.
