Buescher Buries Phoenix Disappointment With Solid Darlington Finish

 

James Buescher was down, but assuredly is not out, following his fifth-place finish in last Saturday’s race at Darlington Raceway.

Buescher’s failure to qualify at Phoenix International Raceway lit a fire under the 20-year-old Texan, who went to last weekend’s third of 25 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races with more than a little to prove. And prove it he did.

 

• As at Daytona International Speedway, Buescher put his truck at the head of the field, leading six laps. He’s now led 61 laps over his two starts.

 

• Buescher’s Darlington finish enabled him to gain 13 spots in the championship standings. He stands 11th, 44 points behind leader Matt Crafton.

 

• Rebounding is nothing new for Buescher, who wasn’t slated to run the full schedule in 2010. He spotted his rivals three early races then came within 37 points of cracking the top 10 on the strength of six top-five and 10 top-10 finishes.

 

Buescher, who turns 21 a week before the April 2 Kroger 250 at Martinsville Speedway, is on the cusp of claiming his first NASCAR Camping World Truck victory, having finished second twice, including a heart-breaking, quarter-second loss to Kyle Busch (No. 18 Toyota), who made the winning pass on the final restart last fall at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
