ROUSH FENWAY RACING DEVELOPMENT CHRIS BUESCHER MAKES HIS FIRST 2010 ARCA START THIS WEEKEND AT SALEM SPEEDWAY
CONCORD, NC (April 8, 2010) - Roush Fenway Racing development driver Chris Buescher will make his first ARCA Series start of the 2010 season this weekend at Salem Speedway. Buescher will drive the No. 17 for Roulo Bros. Racing at eight races this year. Those eight races include both events at Salem, Toledo and the events at Mansfield, Iowa, New Jersey and Rockingham Speedway.
Buescher made his first ARCA start last season at Salem Speedway, where he qualified ninth and finished fourth. That jump started a successful 2009 season for the youngster from Prosper, Texas. At the fall race at Salem Buescher became the youngest pole winner in the 57 year history of the ARCA Series by capturing the pole position. In seven starts in 2009 with Roulo Bros. Racing Buescher earned three top-five and five top-10 finishes.
Roush Fenway and Roulo Bros. continue an affiliation that began in 2005. Since that time the Roulo Bros. have fielded entries for drivers such as David Ragan, Erik Darnell among others in the Roush Fenway driver development program.
"We are really appreciative of the support from everyone in the Roush Fenway organization," said Gary Roulo, Crew Chief and co-owner with his brother Rusty. "It's great to have an affiliation with one of NASCAR's premier teams such as Roush Fenway and the Roush Yates engine department."
The Roulo Bros. team ranks among the top in most all-time active ARCA Series team owner performance stats for wins, poles, laps led and top five-finishes. The team has currently won with seven different drivers in ARCA Series competition.
"I am really looking forward to getting the season started this weekend at Salem" commented Buescher. "My first ARCA start came here last April where we qualified ninth and finished fourth. It is a tough race track, but I learned to really love it."
The No. 17 Roulo Bros. Ford Fusion entry for this weekend's Salem event will once again carry the logos for The David Ragan Fan Club and Shriners Hospitals for Children, David Ragan's official charity.
