James Buescher on driving at Phoenix International Raceway


“I am really glad Great Clips has come on board this weekend. They have been a staple in NASCAR for a long time and it is truly an honor carry their colors this weekend in both the Camping World Truck Series and Nationwide Series races. I really love going out to Phoenix [international Raceway]. It is a great place to race. You carry a lot of speed into the corners, but you can race two-wide. Turns one and two are very different from three and four, so as a driver, you have to be able to adapt to what your truck is doing at both ends of the track.


“We feel like we are bringing a truck capable of winning the race. We had a great run with it at Las Vegas, [Motor Speedway] leading laps and having a chance to win the race. We are looking for more of the same this Friday under the lights in Phoenix. Our Great Clips team has really come together in the last four months. We are running in the top-five each week and are putting ourselves in a position to race for the win. As a driver, that is all I can ask for. I am really looking forward to a great weekend of racing this weekend.”
