Tale of the Tape

Overall at Road America, Jack Roush has 24 starts all-time with the lone Edwards win, six top-10s and three top fives. 18 different drivers have taken the wheel for Roush at Road America, most recently Ty Majeski (No. 60), Conor Daly (No. 6) and Ryan Reed (No. 16) during RFR’s last Xfinity stint at the track.

In Buescher’s lone start at the 4.04-mile track back in 2013, he won the ARCA Series race, leading the final lap after starting sixth in the No. 99 for Roulo Brothers Racing.
