Rain Appears to be Buescher’s Good Luck Charm
The 2015 NASCAR Xfinity Champion Chris Buescher took a big risk, by leaving the Roush Fenway Racing organization for a shot at the ‘big show’ with a less funded team. However, this young wheelman has made the most of the opportunity and moved his #34 Loves Travel Stops Ford Fusion for Front Row Motorsports into the top-thirty of the point stands in a rain delayed ‘Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race.’ Coupled with his win earlier this month at Pocono, Chris and the team sit twelfth on the Chase Grid.
Buescher, who finished fifth yesterday at Bristol Motor Speedway, is now thirteen points ahead of thirty-first-ranked David Ragan. His teammate Landon Cassill sits twenty-ninth, just twenty-seven points ahead.
“That’s Chase eligibility in one race out of the four we had to do it,” Buescher said. “Now we have to hold onto it. I’m really proud of this team. Our Love’s Ford Fusion had great speed this weekend. We’re looking forward to the next handful of races. We’ve got some really good tracks for us coming up. We knew Bristol would be a good one for us. It took us a day later to do it, but we got ourselves a top five and had a blast out here. That was an awesome run.”
