Buescher on racing in Loudon:
“Loudon is one of those places I’ve still been working hard at to figure out, but feel like we’ve slowly made some gains over the last couple years. It’s just so unique compared to all the other tracks on our schedule, and can be a challenge in many ways. We’re excited to get up to New England in the back yard of our friends at Fenway, and look forward to a bounce-back weekend in the Fastenal Ford.”


Last Time Out
Buescher had speed last Sunday in Atlanta, but was caught up in someone else’s incident midway through the race, which ultimately caused a mechanical failure ending his day early.


On the Car
