Buescher on racing on the road course:
“Going right back to Daytona is definitely unique, but I’m excited to head back to the road course where we seem to have had decent speed last week, as well as last summer. Unfortunately last week, we got caught up in someone else’s mess coming down to the final few laps, but last year I think we showed what our road course program is capable of. Sunday is an opportunity to steal some big points right out of the gate, and we look forward to doing that in the Fastenal Ford Mustang.”
Last Time Out
Buescher was caught up in the multi-car incident on lap 14 of the Daytona 500, which ultimately caused damage too severe to return to the track following a lengthy weather delay. He finished 31st.
On the Car
Fastenal returns to the fold at Roush Fenway for its 11th season in 2021. They spent three years on the No. 99 before jumping to the No. 17 Cup Series entry, and were the primary partner on the No. 60 Xfinity team that captured the owner’s championship in 2011.
Fastenal will feature top suppliers MCR, KCP, Walter Tool, Krylon and Louisville on Buescher’s Mustang as he competes this weekend. For more information on these suppliers, visit Fastenal.com, and stay up-do-date on social @FastenalRacing, @Fastenal.
