Chassis Info... RAB Racing will bring Chassis No. 040 to Bristol Motor Speedway. This is the same chassis that the Rheem team utilized at Phoenix International Raceway just two races ago. After running inside the top-10 much of the Blue Jeans Go Green 200, Buescher was able to bring a 12th-place finish in the rain-shortened event.

Vegas Recap... After narrowly missing making the cut for the top-12 in the knockout-style qualifying by .03 seconds, Buescher and the No. 99 Rheem team started from the 14th position for the Boyd Gaming 300. Buescher and the Rheem team battled a loose-handling racecar much of the 200-lap event. Just past the half way point of the race, Buescher was assessed a speeding penalty on pit road. The penalty ended up costing Buescher multiple laps to the leader. Buescher however battled back to get one of those laps back and went on to finish in the 18th position.

Tune In...The NASCAR Nationwide Series returns east when they hit the high-banks of Bristol Motor Speedway for the Drive to Stop Diabetes 300. The event can be seen live on ESPN at 1:00pm EST. The race can also be heard live on SiriusXM Satellite Radio, Channel 90 and PRN Radio.

James Buescher on Racing at Bristol Motor Speedway: "I enjoy racing at Bristol, I've had some good results in the Truck series in the past. Bristol however can be a very tough race track. You constantly have to be on your toes and be ready for anything. Everything tends to happen quicker at Bristol. My Rheem team has had some solid races to start the 2014 season; we're just lacking the results we've expected. I think if we can get some luck on our side, we'll be able to string together some strong results."
