Turner Scott Motorsports previews: Bristol Motor Speedway

Jeb Burton will make their NCWTS debut at the infamous Bristol Motor Speedway, James Buescher is returning after his victory in the last race at MIS.

Preparing to tackle what's known as Thunder Valley, The Bullring and The World's Fastest Half-Mile, Jeb Burton and the No. 4 Arrowhead team will make their NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) debut at the infamous Bristol Motor Speedway this week. Racing under the lights in Wednesday's UNOH 200, Burton will battle the field to keep his second-place spot in the NCWTS Driver Point Standings.

Jeb Burton put on an impressive show in his first visit to Michigan International Speedway, breaking the track's qualifying record en route to his fourth pole of the season. After dominating the first half of the Michigan National Guard 200 and leading the most laps of the race, Burton's went on to finish 10th, his seventh top-10 finish of 2013.

Jeb Burton on Racing at Bristol Motor Speedway... "I've been waiting for our Truck Series race at Bristol all season. It's the kind of track that you can prepare for all year and when you get there, everything goes out the window.

After our performance at Michigan, we feel pretty confident about our strategy and approach. Our TSM team keeps putting in the hours to make sure we have the best truck on the track and I couldn't be happier with where we're at right now. Bristol's going to get interesting though. We're going to give it all we've got to stay in p2."

James Buescher and the entire Rheem team will head into Bristol Motor Speedway (BMS) looking to ride the wave of momentum after last week's victory at Michigan International Speedway (MIS) and continue their climb up the series points standings in search of their second championship. Buescher has moved back into third in the points, just one point behind Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM) teammate Jeb Burton for second place. In the last two races at BMS, Buescher has recorded two top-10s, finishing fourth and seventh, respectively.

The Rheem team will bring chassis TSM-228 with them to Bristol. This particular chassis was last raced at Martinsville Speedway earlier this year where it spent much of the race inside the top five before ultimately finishing 14th.

James Buescher on Winning at Michigan International Speedway... "The win at Michigan was a huge momentum boost for my entire Rheem team. We hadn't been having the season we were hoping for, but I think this win will get us pointed in the right direction to go fight for that championship."

James Buescher on Returning to Bristol Motor Speedway... "Bristol is one of the most challenging tracks on the circuit; you just never know what is going to happen there. We have a great truck prepared to take with us, and I think we have a great shot of giving Rheem and everyone at Turner Scott Motorsports back-to-back wins."
