BRISTOL, Tenn. (Sept. 18, 2021) – Chris Buescher battled through 500 laps Saturday night at Bristol Motor Speedway to finish 23rd in the Fastenal Ford Mustang.
Buescher – at his favorite track – started the evening from the 25th spot and finished the first of two-straight 125 lap stages in 27th. Stage two was halted just a few laps in after his teammate, Ryan Newman, was collected in a multi-car incident that ultimately ended his night. Buescher sustained right-front damage on his No. 17 Ford in the exchange, but in typical Bristol fashion he fought through the scrapes.
The red flag ultimately came out just a few laps later for track clean up, before the stage ended at lap 250. Buescher hovered around 25th for the rest of the evening, and with a lack of late cautions, was unable to get his lap back to finish 23rd.
