The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Driver Brightens the Day for Many Ill-Children
HOUSTON, Texas (July 6, 2009) -- As the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series enjoys a two-week hiatus from racing, James Buescher went back to his home state of Texas and visited the Texas Children's Hospital last Thursday to spend the afternoon with sick children and their families. The 19-year-old brightened the day of many critically ill children by signing autographs and taking pictures with kids who are faced with being in a hospital for weeks and months at a time instead of running around and enjoying the summer with their friends. Buescher, driver of the No. 10 MaxxForce International Ford F-150, has visited the Houston hospital numerous times in his young career, as he enjoys giving back to children who are facing hardships in their lives.
"I have been to Texas Children's Hospital many times in the past and I always enjoy going back there and seeing the kids," said Buescher. "In my life, I have been blessed with a healthy body and to see these kids who aren't as lucky is really sad. I can't imagine being their age and having to go through all of the surgeries and treatments. These kids are unbelievably strong and all of them have great families who stand by them no matter what. For me to take a couple hours out of my life to go spend with them is nothing. If I can go sign some autographs and take some pictures and put a smile on their faces, then it is well worth every moment I was there."
Texas Children's Hospital is an internationally recognized full-care pediatric hospital located in the Texas Medical Center in Houston. One of the largest pediatric hospitals in the United States, Texas Children's Hospital is dedicated to providing the finest possible pediatric patient care, education and research.

This Saturday, July 11, 2009, Buescher will return to racing action at Iowa Speedway as he drives the No. 32 Wolfpack Rentals entry for Win-Tron Racing in the ARCA Re/Max Series. Buescher will attempt to capture his third win of 2009 in only his fourth race this season. The Plano, Texas native crossed the finished line first earlier this season at Daytona International Speedway and Kentucky Speedway.
