* This Week's Silverado... The No. 31 Great Clips Chevrolet Silverado team will bring chassis TMS-011 to Phoenix International Raceway for Friday night's 150-lap shootout. TMS-011 last saw racing action at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in September where James Buescher started second and crossed the finish line in the third position.

* Double Duty... Buescher will have an action packed weekend at Phoenix International Raceway. Not only will he be in the No.31 Great Clips Chevrolet in Friday night's 150-lap race, but he will also pilot the No. 11 Great Clips machine in Saturday's NASCAR Nationwide Series event.

James Buescher on driving at Phoenix International Raceway

"I am really glad Great Clips has come on board this weekend. They have been a staple in NASCAR for a long time and it is truly an honor carry their colors this weekend in both the Camping World Truck Series and Nationwide Series races. I really love going out to Phoenix [International Raceway]. It is a great place to race. You carry a lot of speed into the corners, but you can race two-wide. Turns one and two are very different from three and four, so as a driver, you have to be able to adapt to what your truck is doing at both ends of the track.

"We feel like we are bringing a truck capable of winning the race. We had a great run with it at Las Vegas, [Motor Speedway] leading laps and having a chance to win the race. We are looking for more of the same this Friday under the lights in Phoenix. Our Great Clips team has really come together in the last four months. We are running in the top-five each week and are putting ourselves in a position to race for the win. As a driver, that is all I can ask for. I am really looking forward to a great weekend of racing this weekend."
