There’s Nothing You Can’t Do, Now You’re in New York 
In 107 NCS starts at WGI, RFK has three wins, 23 top-five and 41 top-10 finishes along with four poles. All three of RFK’s victories came with former driver and NASCAR Hall of Famer Mark Martin (1993, 1994, 1995).

 

Buescher’s Recent Road Course Results 
Buescher has quietly put himself in the conversation for drivers that have excelled on road courses as of late. Dating back to February of 2019, Buescher ranks sixth in average finish among active drivers with a 12.6 average result across 16 races. All five of his career top-10s on road courses – and three top fives – have come in the last four seasons.

 

Dating back five road course races, Buescher has finishes of 10th (Indy 2022), sixth (Road America 2022), second (Sonoma 2022), 21st (COTA 2022) and third (ROVAL 2021). He led laps in two of those, and earned a P3 finish in stage two in Sonoma before going on to run second to the No. 99.

 

Top of the List, King of the Hill

Martin secured three-straight wins for RFK at the famed New York road course from 1993-95. He started on the pole for each of the three races and led a combined 183 laps during the three-year streak.

 

Tale of the Tape – Road Courses

In 240 road course starts all-time in the NCS, Jack Roush’s Fords have won five races and tallied 40 top-five and 83 top-10 finishes, along with six poles. In those 240 starts, an RFK Ford has led 585 laps for an average finish of 17.6.
