Buescher on Returning to Phoenix in a NNS Car:
"I'm looking forward to getting back behind the wheel a Nationwide car at Phoenix. It's been a couple years since the last time I've gotten the opportunity to do so. I've had some up-and-down times on the old configuration of Phoenix, but I feel like the new layout really suits my style of driving. My Rheem team had a strong run going last week, we're going to take that momentum and look to come out firing out of the box this weekend.
