Plano's James Buescher to compete at TMS this Saturday

Recommended Posts

FORT WORTH, Texas (October 30, 2009) –Plano native James Buescher will drive Phoenix Racing’s No. 1 entry in the upcoming O’Reilly Challenge Nationwide Series race Saturday, Nov. 7, at Texas Motor Speedway.


The race will mark Buescher’s seventh career start in the Nationwide Series as he made six series starts in 2008 before transitioning to a full-time NASCAR Camping World Truck Series schedule this season with Circle Bar Racing. In Buescher’s last start in the Nationwide Series, he qualified on the pole at Memphis Motorsports Park.


Buescher, who turned his first laps in a Legends car around the fifth-mile Lil’ Texas Motor Speedway as an 11-year-old, is a rookie this year in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. He currently is 14th in NCWTS championship standings with one top-five and three top-10 finishes. Buescher, 19, made his first career start on Texas Motor Speedway’s 1.5-mile oval in June, posting an 18th-place finish in the WinStar World Casino 400.


“Competing at Texas Motor Speedway is always enjoyable and exciting because I have grown up watching races there, on top of running in races on the smaller track when I was just starting my career,” Buescher said. “A lot of my family and friends come out during the race weekend, and to be able to run in both the truck series race and Nationwide Series race is something that I’m really looking forward to.”


Buescher’s on-track activity begins Thursday, Nov. 5, with practice and 7 p.m. CT qualifying for the WinStar World Casino 350k Camping World Truck Series event. On Friday, Nov. 6, he will practice and qualify (5:35 p.m.) for the O’Reilly Challenge prior to competing in the WinStar World Casino 350k at 8 p.m. His weekend closes out Saturday, Nov. 7, with the O’Reilly Challenge race beginning at 11:30 a.m.


Tickets for the 7-Eleven Qualifying Days, WinStar World Casino 350k and O’Reilly Challenge are still available and can be purchased by calling (817) 215-8500 or visiting www.texasmotorspeedway.com.
