Buescher on racing at Nashville:
“I’m excited to get back to the track, especially since our last time out we had so much momentum. Last year this race unfortunately ended early for us, but I feel good about our situation heading into the weekend. Glad to get back to a fun city in Nashville and see what we can do come Sunday in our Fastenal Ford.”


Last Time Out
Buescher was a position away from victory lane in the Cup Series’ last outing at Sonoma, as he led multiple laps and ran inside the top-five most all day going on to finish second.
