Buescher on racing at Kansas:
“We’re looking forward to putting the AutoTempest Ford on the track for the first time this season, a brand we’re excited to work with as they’re car-lovers like us. Kansas is a super-fast race track and one that widens out throughout a race. Our goal is to have our No. 17 dialed in early and get to the front for another solid finish.”
Last Time Out
Despite avoiding all of the early crashes last Sunday at Talladega, Chris Buescher was hooked in the right rear coming to the checkered flag and was relegated to a 21st-place finish with damage on his Fastenal Ford.
Where They Rank
Buescher is tied for 15th in points entering Kansas as the fight for playoff positions heats up now more than a quarter through the 2021 campaign.
