* The Meijer 300 will mark James Buescher's second career Nationwide Series start. His first came at Phoenix International Raceway earlier this season piloting the No.32 for Braun Racing. He qualified 17th and finished a respectable 18th.

* Buescher has never raced at Kentucky Speedway but he does have a few laps at the Sparta track already under his belt. He tested an ARCA/Remax Series car at Kentucky Speedway in 2007.

* In addition to the Meijer 300 this weekend, Buescher will compete in four more Nationwide Series races this season for Braun Racing, The Milwaukee Mile next weekend, Gateway International Raceway and O'Reilly Raceway Park in July and Memphis Motorsports Park in October.

* When Buescher is not competing in Nationwide Series races this season he will keep busy racing in three other series, the ARCA RE/MAX Series, the Hooters Pro Cup Series, and the Camping World Series.

Deft Coating will adorn the hood of the No.32 for the Meijer 300. The company is leading the coating industry in the development of high performance, low volatile organic content (VOC) coating systems. Deft Coating has more than 35 years experience in lowering toxicity and air pollution for high performance primers and topcoats. Braun Racing uses Deft Coating paint on their race cars.

The Fraternal Order of Eagles (FOE) will co-sponsor the No.32 alongside Deft Coating. The FOE is an international non-profit organization with the goals of promoting peace, prosperity, gladness and hope. The FOE is credited with the institution of the Mother's Day holiday as well as its work encouraging programs and legislation that benefit many Americans --both young and old. The Fraternal Order of Eagles has been an associate sponsor of Braun Racing since 2005.

Buescher on racing at Kentucky Speedway "I'm really excited to be back with Braun Racing and get back in this Nationwide Series car. I learned at Phoenix that this is some of the best equipment in the garage area and I feel very fortunate to be able to drive it. I've never raced at Kentucky before but in our ARCA test session last year, I learned a lot about the track and really enjoyed running on it. This will be a good race for the Nationwide Series regulars and the new Nationwide Series drivers, like myself, to really show their stuff. There won't be as many Cup Series drivers in the field and that gives the rest of use a better chance to shine. The stand-alone events are also a lot of fun for the fans."

Equipment Information The No. 32 Deft Coating/FOE team will compete with chassis #22 in the Meijer 300 at Kentucky Speedway. This is the same chassis Brian Vickers raced at Atlanta Motor Speedway where he started 16th and finished 22nd.
