James Buescher on racing at Atlanta Motor Speedway:

"Atlanta is always a track that I enjoy coming too, even though I only have one Nationwide race under my belt at the track, I've had some good runs in the trucks here. Our Rheem/RAB Racing team has come a long way in the last month with getting the cars set up closer to where I need them and finding some speedway. Coming off a top-10 at Bristol proves this and helps our confidence going into this weekend. We have a lot of intermediate tracks left on the schedule and we'll be able to tell where we stack up for the remaining portion of the season but we feel like we can start stringing together a lot of solid results."
