QUOTES Chris Buescher on racing at Darlington Raceway:“I have never competed in a NASCAR sanctioned event at Darlington, but my crew chief has extensive knowledge of the race track and knows what it takes to be successful.  Our team will be focused and prepared for whatever comes our way Friday night.”  

Crew chief Chris Andrews on racing at Darlington Raceway:“We expect Chris to learn the race track in practice and the specific lines he has to run to be fast.  I have given him a few DVD’s of past races at Darlington, so he will know what to expect when he gets in the car.  I have confidence that Chris will compete at a very high level and run a solid race just like last week at Richmond.”  

REWIND- RICHMOND, Va. –Chris Buescher showed a glimpse of what the future may look like at Roush Fenway Racing as the developmental driver made his NASCAR debut in the NASCAR Nationwide Series Bubba Burger 250 at Richmond International Raceway on Friday night.  Buescher subbed in for Trevor Bayne, who is undergoing a litany of tests for symptoms thought to be related to the insect bite he sustained earlier this month.  Buescher was able to keep his Ford Mustang clean throughout the night and run a solid race, earning a respectable 17th-place finish on a night where there were only five cars that finished on the lead lap.
