Chris Buescher on racing at Chicagoland Speedway


“Our 60 team has had great momentum and we are looking forward to getting back to the race track this weekend at Chicagoland.  We have made big gains with our big-track program and feel like Chicago should be another chance at a solid top-five.  We ran really well there last year and have plenty to build on.”
