James Buescher to pilot Stringer Motorsports No. 90 Toyota Tundra in upcoming NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Race at Nashville Superspeedway

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (March 30, 2010) -- Stringer Motorsports is pleased to announce that Plano, Texas-native, James Buescher, will pilot the No. 90 Toyota Tundra in the April 2nd NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) race at Nashville Superspeedway. Buescher is running a limited schedule in the series for Turner Motorsports in addition to competing for the Rookie of the Year honors in the NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) for Phoenix Racing.

Buescher quickly became noticed as a future racing talent after his 2007 debut in the ARCA Racing Series (ARS). In first career ARCA race, which occurred at Lakeland Speedway, he started from the outside pole and led for 34 laps before claiming the win in dominating fashion. In 19 ARCA starts over four seasons, Buescher captured an impressive three wins, two poles, eight top-five and 12 top-10 finishes.

The 20-year-old made his debut in the NCWTS in 2008, making his one and only start of the year at Homestead-Miami Speedway, where he started 10th and finished 19th. That same season, Buescher took another major step in his career by making his debut in the NNS at Phoenix International Raceway in Braun Racing's No. 32 entry.

In 2009, Buescher returned to the NCWTS to run his first full season of competition in addition to select races in the NNS and ARS. His was the first face to see victory lane during the 2009 Speedweeks, scoring the biggest win of his career in the ARCA Lucas Oil 250 at the famed Daytona International Speedway.

Buescher, who hasn't competed in the NCWTS since the 2009 season-finale, is excited to get back behind the wheel on Friday night.

"I'm excited to have the opportunity to drive for Stringer Motorsports and looking forward to the chance to work with Trip Bruce and his guys. I would love to get another Nashville Guitar in my collection! I have one from a Legends Car National Championship several years ago. It has been a while since I have been in a truck, I can't wait to get back in one!"

Champion crew chief, Trip Bruce, looks forward to working with Buescher.

"I'm looking forward to running James at Nashville. He is a great wheel man and I am excited to have the opportunity to work together. In 2008, I made the trip to Nashville Superspeedway's victory lane with Johnny Benson and I hope to make a return trip this weekend with James and my Stringer Motorsports crew. I appreciate all the hard work my guys are putting in for this team and I am looking forward to the program Doug Stringer is trying to build this year with this No. 90 team."
