BUESCHER AT DARLINGTON... Though many of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series drivers will be sporting a rookie stripe this weekend at Darlington, James Buescher will be making his second career start at the historic 1.336-mile oval. Buescher first visited the track in a NASCAR Nationwide Series race in which he finished 31st.

BUESCHER ON COMPETING AT DARLINGTON: "Darlington is a tough track that always produces great racing. In my one race there in the Nationwide Series, I definitely didn't have the finish I wanted, but I'm excited about going back and seeing what I can do in the Truck Series. I just hope my Wolf Pack Rentals Chevy doesn't have too many of those stripes on it by the end of the night!"

CHASSIS INFORMATION... Crew chief Michael Shelton has chosen Turner Motorsports chassis No. 006 for Buescher to run at Darlington this Saturday. This particular Chevrolet saw action at Dover, Michigan and Iowa, where Buescher finished 2nd, 16th and 5th, respectively.

LOOKING BACK... Buescher fought loose conditions in his truck all night at Nashville Superspeedway and came home with a 16th-place finish. Though the race wasn't what he was looking for, he did have a big week leading up to the green flag by taking part in the Second Annual Nashville Rhythm and Race Festival benefitting Make-A-Wish Foundation of Middle Tennessee. His special paint scheme was partially designed by 12-year-old Luke Robinson of Dickson, Tenn. Buescher helped make Luke's wish come true by having him as a part of the No. 31 crew.
