Ricky Stenhouse Jr. will take on the challenging obstacle course tonight on NBC’s “American Ninja Warrior.’'

Stenhouse was the lone NASCAR driver. He competed against IndyCar drivers Helio Castroneves, Tony Kanaan and Josef Newgarden. The show was taped in late April in Indianapolis.

“I had a great time during American Ninja Warrior,” Stenhouse said in a statement. “I have been a big fan of the show and always wanted to try some of the obstacles. All the participants were so helpful. They would tell you what they struggled with and how to attack a certain obstacle. I’m definitely going to train harder next year and do it again.”

Tonight’s show airs at 8 p.m. ET.
